“If you’re looking for a tattoo that can make you look sexy or cool, you’ve come to the right place,” says Tiffany M. Lippman, a tattoo artist in Minneapolis.
“We have a ton of beautiful tattoos that we sell here, so if you want something bold and unique, this is the place to go.”
The tattoo industry is growing quickly.
In 2017, the total number of tattoos for women surpassed 100 million, and by 2020, the number of tattooed women was projected to surpass 100 million.
But while there are more women than ever before, the numbers are not growing at the same rate as men, and there are fewer men than ever in the tattoo business.
Women are more likely to have tattoos, and tattoos for them are less common.
Women can have tattoos without being bothered by the cost.
For a $30 fee, the company will create a tattoo for you that’s a custom-made design, and they can also customize it to fit their personality.
You can get tattoos at any number of different places, from salons to tattoo parlors.
Some tattoo parlor owners are trying to address this by making it easier for women to get tattoos.
“I want to be able to make a custom tattoo for a woman without having to make it for her,” says Stephanie Ruhlmann, co-owner of Tattoo Paradise in Portland, Oregon.
“When I was growing up, I would wear an oversized tee shirt or be wearing a baseball cap to get my favorite tattoo.
I’ve never had that problem with women.
Now I don’t even have to wear a jacket.
I can get the tattoo with my clothes on, and it’s just a really simple thing.”
Women’s health and fitness magazines and websites are filled with articles about how to get the most beautiful tattoos.
In 2016, the popular magazine Glamour featured a cover story on the benefits of being able to get a custom skin-tone tattoo.
A woman in her early 30s was featured on the cover, and her mother encouraged her to get her tattoo.
“If she has a problem, we can work it out,” said Ruhlsmann.
“She was excited, and I know how important it is to be happy with your body.”
Tattoo studios offer a range of services to women, including laser cutting, tattooing, laser removal, and skin-tightening services.
Some have even gone so far as to sell skin-colored versions of their tattoos, like an eye-stain-free tattoo, which cost $99 to create.
“Tattoo shops and tattoo studios have been around for a long time, but women are getting more and more involved in the industry,” says Lippmann.
But what’s different now is that there are so many more options for women than there were years ago.
Lipsman, who works out of her home studio, started Tattoo Parlor in her home state of Minnesota.
“It’s the perfect place for me,” she says.
“Because I can control the color and how it looks.
I don, like, let a tattooer do that for me.”
For Lippsons, who has been tattooing for about five years, it’s easy to see why women have become so involved in tattooing.
“Women are starting to realize that it’s not only about the tattoo, but about the look as well,” she explains.
“They’re starting to look at it as an art form, not just as a cosmetic thing.”
Some of the tattooing companies that have started offering custom tattoo services include Tattoo Beauty, Tattoo Eden, Tattoot, Tattooshop, and Tattoo Salon.
In addition to the more mainstream services, there are also companies like Tattoo Magic, Tatto Studio, and Ink on Tats that offer skin-color tattoos and piercing.
Tattoo Artists are also getting involved in fashion, and Lipp says she’s already seen women start talking about their favorite color tattoo designs on Instagram.
“A lot of women have started making their own designs, and a lot of them are going to be wearing them on their bodies,” she points out.
“That’s a trend, and we’re seeing more women embracing that.”
In 2018, there were more than 100 tattoo parliment and tattoo shops in the United States.
In 2019, there was more than 20,000, according to Tattoo News.
In 2020, there will be almost 50,000.
And that number is projected to grow to 50,400 by 2026.
Women have become more active in the business, and some of those women are turning to the tattoo industry for a new way to express their love.
“Some women who aren’t necessarily in the know about the art of tattooing are going out there with their friends and getting tattoos on their arms and legs,” Lipp said.
“And the girls are going crazy.”
