Develop a survey to explore:

  • Number of tattoos
  • Where on the body
  • Size of tattoo
  • Type of tattoo - words, symbols,
  • Intention to have more tattoos - type and size
  • Reasons for the tattoo
  • Brands used? Why? Why not?
  • Any tatts removed? Successful? Why? Why not?
  • Regrets? Explain

2. Use SurveyMonkey to develop your survey

1. "More than 20 percent of all Americans have at least one tattoo, and for millennials that number jumps to almost 40 percent.

What could be more intimately a part of you than a work of body art permanently inked into your skin? You probably assume that the tattoo on your body belongs to you. But, in actuality, somebody else might own your tattoo. Recent lawsuits and events have shown that tattoo artists and companies can have intellectual property rights in tattoos worn by others, including both copyright and trademark rights."

2. Create a list of the lawsuits presented here and their outcome.

3. What are the requirements to receive copyright protection? Research whether it is the same here in Australia.

4. "A report this week from the Australian government’s National Industrial Chemical’s Notification and Assessment Scheme (NICNAS) shows what’s in the ink that’s under the skin of more than 2 million Australians and about 100 million Europeans. And it’s not pretty.

The report found 471 different tattoo inks likely to be used in Australia made up of 89 unique chemicals. They interviewed 22 professional tattoo artists and sourced 49 specific tattoo inks likely to be used in Australian tattoo parlours for detailed chemical analysis.

Of the 49 inks NICNAS tested, only four complied with the European standards.

The major concern was the presence of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), a group of chemicals known to be carcinogens. PAHs were found in more than one-fifth of the samples tested and in 83% of the black inks tested.

Other non-compliant components include barium, copper, mercury, amines and various colourants."
