CynoSure Australia and McCrindle Research conducted the survey of 1000 tattooed Australians, and found that arms are the most popular body parts for permanent artwork with 33% of respondents having that spot inked.
This was followed by shoulders (12%), wrists (8%), chest and ankles (6%), legs (5%), hips (3%), ribcages and necks (2%), stomach, hands, and face (1%).
Their research, the largest of its kind in the country, also discovered that women were more likely to get inked on their back, wrist and ankles with 23% choosing animal designs, 13% getting flowers and 6% settling on hearts.

The top three reasons for getting a tatt were: to express a unique style, signify a life event and to honour loved one.
It might also be fair to assume that a few too many Bintangs could have played a role in some decision making processes as one in 10 Australians have got their tattoos overseas.
We're also not sure if there's a correlation here, but a quarter of Aussies regret getting one or all of their tattoos and half of those with regrets admit that their first tattoo was a spontaneous one.
