About This Quiz

Not so long ago, the only people you'd see walking around with visible tattoos were sailors, musicians, criminals and maybe the odd circus person.  But most of the polite world would never dream of partaking in such things. Tattoos were seedy and uncouth.  Then the world changed!  These days, people from just about any walk of life have tattoos. From celebrities to CEOs to soccer moms, tattoos are a right of passage for many people. Some of them we get on whims and others we get because they hold a ton of special meaning for us.  There are as many reasons to get tattoos as there are people who are getting them.

Some people only want to get a tattoo if it's a serious affair that holds a lot of special meaning. What nearly any tattoo shows and the people getting them almost always have, is some kind of emotional backstory for the ink they're getting. But by the same token, there's nothing wrong with getting a tattoo just because you think it looks cool.  Whatever the reason and motivation for your ink, we bet we can learn a lot about you from it.  In fact, if you share some opinions on tattoos with us, we'll even guess how old you are. Don't believe it? Take the quiz and see!
