It's no secret that Richmond loves its tattoos. You can't go anywhere without seeing someone covered in ink.

Apparently, we have a lot of tattoos compared to the rest of the country.

The Today Show scoped out the most tattooed cities in America and came up with their Top 10 and our fair city made the list at #3.

"Perhaps most surprising on our list is the city of Richmond, Va., which averages about 14.5 tattoo shops per 100,000 people — and that's just within the city itself. Likely boosting its numbers is its big arts and college community, and the fact that the surrounding suburbs and cities contain plenty more tattoo shops — the most of which per capita appeared in the small town of Colonial Heights, which has five shops for just under 17,000 residents."
