Los Angeles, Calif. (PRWEB) October 15, 2006
TattooBin.com, a start-up Internet site, launches into the realm of the social networking arena providing a service that seems to be lacking in the tattoo world - an online community. TattooBin.com is a community site that provides a communication platform for artists, studios, tattoo enthusiasts, and anyone else who is interested in tattoos.
The website helps people share their tattoos by allowing free uploads of personal tattoo photos, while also providing the ability to view large close-up images, rate them, comment on them, flag favorites, and send them to friends. Users of TattooBin.com can even write and respond to stories and find and contact local artists and studios. TattooBin.com is unique in providing a place for people to share their artwork, talk about the art form, research, get ideas, and find tattoo providers. This tattoo website provides an inimitable place for people who love tattoos that has been lacking in the large and ever-growing world of tattoos.
As of 2002, the word "tattoos" reached its highest ranking ever, coming in as the number two most requested search term on the Internet. "Tattoos" was requested more often than Britney Spears, Las Vegas, and WWF. The U.S News & World report states that at least one parlor per day is opening within the U.S. TattooBin.com is pioneering a way for people to share in this growing form of self-expression in a safe, fun, and anonymous way (all users on TattooBin.com are only known by their "tat name," and not by their real names).
According to the Department of Family Medicine, between 10% and 30% of young adults currently have tattoos, and that up to half of non-tattooed young adults are considering getting a tattoo. With tattoos being most popular among people between the ages of 25 and 49, and that population accounting for 70% of the tattoos (according to Harrison's Study), the industry shows signs of expansion.
"We are providing an engaging place for users to share this great art form while deploying new technologies and services to make communication as quick and easy as possible," say the founders of TattooBin.com. "TattooBin.com was created for tattoo lovers and people interested in tattoos. We've given the user the ability to save favorite tattoos by creating what we've called MyBins, which let you hold the tattoos you like in a bucket that can be viewed later or emailed to friends. And we've made sure that the image size is fairly large, so people who love this art form and those who want to research and get ideas for their own tattoos have the tools and ability to easily do that."
An estimated 40 million Americans have tattoos, and this number is increasing daily. TattooBin.com will add value not only to the user, but studios and artists alike, who have the opportunity to showcase their work and communicate with potential clients well before they ever walk into a tattoo studio.
