Statistics

Results of a survey of Osaka's 34,000 city employees has revealed that 110 of them have tattoos.

73 of those work in the Environment Department (i.e,. garbage collection), another 15 in the Transportation Bureau.

The city is moving to clamp down on visible tattoos, and is considering measures that may include dismissal.
