I see more people with them than I do without them. At least where I live. It seems like they are so mainstream, the edge of having one is completely gone unless you are like 16. I know back in the 80's and 90's it was a huge statement to have one or several but now people just cover themselves in them and with "trendy" tattoos at that. Kind of put me off from getting any more.

Now?? It has been this way since the early 2000's. Soon as "famous people" started sporting them is when it became a thing. I think the cut off for it becoming as casual and common as blue jeans was around 2012.

I don't know when exactly it became mainstream but like red mentioned, it happened because famous people casually started getting them. I don't think there is anything wrong with getting any so long as you do it for you and you aren't following trends.
