What should I say in a presentation about tattoos for sociology?

In terms of sociology, the most interesting things about tattoos would have to do with which groups of people do or do not have tattoos.

I would do research into the topic to confirm that there have been changes in the groups of people who have tattoos.  I believe that tattoos began as very much a lower class thing.  In past times, a "normal" middle class person would never have a tattoo.  This would have been especially true of women.  Now, tattoos seem to be quite prevalent among all classes of people.

I would try to make a sociological argument as to why tattoos have become more popular and why they have lost the stigma that they had as recently as 2 or 3 decades ago.

To many, a tattoo is thought of as being a permanent decoration, a good cosmetic change. Furthermore, tattoos are popular among teenagers and young adults. In fact, tattoo art or tattoo quotes may be used as a permanent memorial for something close to you.
