Canada's National Post recently published this tattoo industry infographic, which you can view in detail here. Like most infographics that try to condense complex info into a small image, much of the stats are questionable; for example, I'm uncertain as to the info source on the percentages listed of what body parts are most popular for tattoos - especially as everyone I just saw on the street today had a neck tattoo (without any other coverage, of course). That said, it's worth a click for anyone looking for a bare bones primer on coil machines, pigments, and even how the ink gets into the skin. But if you're serious about stats, pretend I didn't mention anything.

To date, my favorite infographic remains this one by Paul Marcinkowski.
