You may have noticed there has been a trend over the last few years for Tattoo Parlours to move into suburban shopping malls. You could find them alongside your favourite ice cream shop, café or clothing store. Traditionally, they have often been located in the edgier parts of town. Now, they are coming in from the cold, so to speak.

Shops are appearing in up-market resorts and exclusive boutiques, which is an indication of their acceptance and popularity. The fact that several tattoo shop operators are establishing chains both nationally clothes to wear with tattoos and internationally further underlines the growth in the industry.

There seems to be plenty of evidence of the growing popularity of tattooing. Pew Research Centre says around 36 per cent of 18 to 25-year-olds has tattoos whilst Harris Interactive has 32% of the 25 to 29 age group with tattoos and 25% of the 30 to 39 age group. Sometimes the figures seem greater than this when we see the number of celebrities with tattoos. Not only are they evident for us all to see but also there are more news items and articles which makes mention of celebrity tattoos.

Certainly, there is a lot more accountability in an up-market shopping mall as the mall management could be dragged into any customer dissatisfaction or disputes. This could taint the reputation of the whole mall.
