KC seems to have many tattooed people and shops, especially in midtown but didn't think city wide it would put KC in top 10.

No. 9: Kansas City, Mo.

With about six tattoo shops per 100,000 people, Kansas City came up in several sites we looked at as another “tattoo-friendly” place to live — not bad for the not-so-tattoo-friendly Midwest. Why? We're guessing it has something to do with KC being the bustling center of the Kansas City metro area and the state's largest city, along with having a thriving population of below-30 folk, more than 10 colleges and universities, and a big performing arts scene.

I'm not surprised by this. When I moved back to KC in '09, one of the biggest changes I noticed over the past few years (aside from the obvious Sprint Center and P&L) was the proliferation of tattoo parlors, particularly in Midtown.

KC does seem have a higher than average percentage of artists and other "alternative types" who would be more likely to have tattoos.
