The industry is highly fragmented and no major companies exist in the United States; the majority of companies operate just one establishment. Companies compete through word-of-mouth recommendation and advertising. Since there are a large number of tattoo parlors in the United States, companies can compete by locating in areas with a large amount of pedestrian traffic. Demand for these services is dependent on per capita disposable income, as well as changing consumer attitudes towards tattooing.
This industry includes establishments that provide tattoo services by injecting ink under the skin and permanently altering the coloration of the skin. This industry also includes tattoo-related maintenance, design and modification services, but it does not include laser tattoo-removal services.
