Just because adults have tattoos, doesn’t necessarily mean they think that’s a good idea for future generations.
Nearly half – 49% of all respondents – said they don’t want their children (or future hypothetical children for survey-takers who plan to have kids) to have tattoos or piercings. That could be because of of surveys such as one by CareerBuilder.com, which found that 37% of HR managers cite tattoos as the third most likely physical attribute that limits career potential.
People age 26-32 are the least likely to object to tattoos and piercings for their kids, with only 26% against it. That’s compared to the 31% of people age 18-25 who are against tattoos for their progeny. Not surprisingly, 70% of people age 60 and older don’t want body art for their kids, which tops the list.
