The US and England are two of the West’s leading countries in terms of
body modification, but which nation reigns supreme in terms of the percentages?
Here’s a few key points to consider:

United States Great Britain

 

According to polls, approximately 16% of all U.S. adults have at least
one tattoo.

Studies show that about 32% of Americans aged 18 to 40 have tattoos.

Surveys have shown that around 14% of American adults have at least one
piercing other than the ear lobe.

In US studies young women are more likely to get pierced than men, with
females accounting for nearly 75% of the pierced population under age
29.

According to polls approximately 20% of all British adults have at least
one tattoo.

According to survey about 29% of Brits aged 16 to 44 have tattoos.

A study of 10,500 Brits showed that around 10% have a piercing somewhere
other than the ear lobe.

Surveys show that young women are more likely to get pierced in England
than men, with about 46% of females 16 to 24 years of age being pierced.

 

In both countries the most popular body piercing sights are the navel,
nose, and ear cartilage (anywhere except the lobe, including rook, conch,
tragus, etc.).

So it looks like we’re pretty evenly matched, with a slightly higher percentage
of those in Britain being tattooed, and a slightly higher percentage of
those in America being pierced. Any way you slice, that’s a lot of modification!
