Not to stereotype, but of all the festivals I've gone to — and there have been many — the majority of the concert-goers had at least one tattoo. However, of the tattoos you CAN see, do you ever think about how many you CAN'T see? A little playful, "I'll show you mine, if you show me yours" is a half notch away from first base.
