The article cites a study that examines the personality of tattooed male patients at Wharncliffe Hospital in Sheffield, England. Researchers studied 513 consecutive male admissions to the hospital by personal interview and examination. It was found that there were no significant differences between the various specialties for the incidence of tattooing between tattooed and non-tattooed men. Tattooed men were less likely to be members of a Christian Free Church, more than twice as likely to have tattooed family members and three times more likely to give a history of criminal convictions.
