Rise in tattoo parlour openings
The number of tattoo parlours opening across Britain has more than doubled in the past three years, according to new research.
A study by insurance firm Simply Business showed the biggest increases were in Scotland and Greater London.
The tattoo craze has also risen sharply in East Anglia and Wales, said the firm.
Jason Stockwood, chief executive of Simply Business, said: "With the social perception of tattoos changing as a result of media, celebrity and fashion trends, it's good to see the spirit of entrepreneurs and start-ups shining through as they respond to the evolving demands of the modern consumer."
