Tattoo Statistics For Australia – 2022 UPDATE

2022 UPDATE

So much has happened since this original post went LIVE that it needed an update to reflect the world as it exists today Post Pandemic

Previously we all knew the British are the most tattooed people on the planet, but NOT ANY MORE.

That title – The Most Tattooed People in the World belongs to the ITALIANS!

It may come as a surprise, but the country with the highest percentage of tattooed people actually isn’t the Brits, the Yanks or even us Aussies. It’s Italy. According to recent data, 48 percent of Italians have at least one tattoo, compared to 46 percent of Americans and 43% of Australians.

The survey, which was conducted in April of 2018, polled nearly 10,000 people in Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Israel, Italy, Mexico, Russia, South Africa, Sweden, Turkey, the United Kingdom and the United States.

Sweden falls just behind Italy, with 47 percent of respondents polled having at least one tattoo. Israel and Turkey make up the bottom percentile of the countries surveyed, with a respective 25 percent and 30 percent of respondents having at least one tattoo.

Ironically, Italians are more likely to only have one tattoo, while Americans and Swedes are more likely to have multiple tattoos. The median number of tattoos is around four per respondent; one-quarter of the population polled had only one tattoo, with the other three-quarters having two tattoos or more.

So how does Australia stack up compared to the rest of the world?
