However, it wasnt until several decades ago when tattoos made its impact in Western culture. The economy within that tattoo industry has an influx. More recently, it has been a success in states such as California, New York, Florida, etc. but has declined in Ohio, Georgia, Wisconsin, North Carolina, etc. Considering imagination and art never has a consistent, cycled decline in its flow, tattoo industry thrives well in innovative and progressives states. Estimated 40 million people in America have a tattoo 1 in 8 Americans have a tattoo Democrats/progressives most likely to have tattoos Ages 18-40 have at least one tattoo

Target appeal to the masses involves the demographic of late teens (18-19) to mid twenties and those older than mid thirties. We will target more progressive people, people in an artistic industry, those that are interested in fashion, music, art, film. Our goal is to target young people, but have our prices match their price range. Critical needs of targeted demographic is to make sure our prices meet our intentional demographic. To also have our employees and advertisements make people feel comfortable, safe, secure, and feel a sense of trust. Demographic is located within vicinity around metropolitan area and/or progressive areas. Another critical need is to make sure our artists and piercers are well established, have a trustworthy, respectful, and artistically innovative reputation. We suggest a 4% growth in those new at tattoos (also known as first-timers) and those that regularly get tattoos (tattoo-collectors). Annual growth in income is suspected to be higher than six figures. Planned discounts designed to use are 10%-15% during holidays, promotional use, randomly selected dates. To keep consistent growth and sustain incline, must keep tattoos artists and piercers up to date with trends, styles, art in which demographic seems to have interest in. Must have workers

and team also keep up to date with business strategies. Keep close ties with other businesses and social media sites. Competition would be surrounded by bang for bucks, meaning best artists for a low price.
