Which South Florida city most tattooed in America?

South Florida is home to the Most Tattooed City in American, says TotalBeauty.com. (Sun Sentinel, file)

Saunter around South Beach, downtown Fort Lauderdale or a mall in Boca Raton and you will find young and old who love their tattoos.

But one city in South Florida earns the distinction of being the “Most Tattooed City in America,” meaning it has the most tattoo parlors and tattoo wearers around: Miami Beach.

Who knew? The title was bestowed on Miami Beach by TotalBeauty.com, which checked Yellow Pages and Google listings and other sources to determine which cities across the country had the highest tattoo parlor per resident ratio. The city apparently ranks as having an average of 24 tattoo shops per 100,000 people, beating out other city competitors such as Las Vegas and San Francisco.

Maybe that’s why Miami Beach was home to the TLC reality show, Miami Ink, which led to similar shows in LA and London.
