If so, how do you go about getting them done?
A recent report by the US National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) showed that one in four young black people across the country had had at least one tattoo at one moment in their lives. Of those, 27 percent had at least one on their arm, with 30 percent having at least one on the back. And the number of black men who have had at least one tattoo on their back jumped from 1.5 percent in 2006 to 3 percent in 2014.
The report pointed to a slew of other factors driving up the number of black men getting tattoos on the back. For example, the percentage of black men who get tattooed on the back, particularly if they’re in their early 20s, has been significantly increasing since the 1990s. The report says people’s reluctance to be tattooed has been blamed for the uptick.
“One of the reasons we have a high prevalence of these in tattoos is people are afraid of getting these, because they feel the pressure they’ll get caught or have others find out,” said Sarah A. Lewis from the Black Institute. The report found that there is a strong correlation between tattoos on the back and being in the criminal justice system.
Black men are often more likely to get tattoos than other minority groups. This is because white people are more likely to get tattoos than people of different races. In fact, in the US in 2015, white Americans had the highest number of tattooed people, at 14.6 percent, compared to 13.7 percent of black people.
However, if someone is looking for ways to avoid getting a black eye or black eye socket, it’s always a good idea to get one at the very least, particularly if you’re planning on going out for a night out or going on a date.
“So I would definitely just say do not get a tattoo on your back if you like it that way or have a tattoo on your back that’s bad,” says Justin Jones.
And while the majority of black people in the world are not in favor of the idea of getting a tattoo on their back, there’s still this small group of black tattooist that still get it done religiously. This group comes in all shapes and sizes, from men that get tattoos for pleasure to those that get them more as a method to help them cope with stress, pain or simply because they love the color blue.
