Study Links Tattoos with Anger, Aggression, and Rebellion
By Fox 8

The results of a new study indicate that people with tattoos tend to be more aggressive than those with no body art.

Daily Mail reports that the study was conducted by Anglia Ruskin University. The study looked at 378 adults between the ages of 20 and 58. One in four of them had tattoos.

Researchers did not look at the design of the tattoos of those involved in the study.
