That's like asking "Do pro-basketball players make more money than pro-baseball players?" It's a very obscure question, with several factors that could affect the answer in very specific circumstances.

Depends on:
the model
the market
(for some) the intended usage
(almost always) the photographer
the concept
etc etc

Generally speaking there are no absolutes.

I find that it is the opposite locally. There are easily 10-15 non-tatted models for every 1 tatted up model in town. The tatted up ones are the ones in demand by photographers it seems.

Where is local? I mean, even here in Iowa, a tattoo seems to mark the coming of age. At my niece's wedding last fall, every one of the bridesmaids had a garish tattoo of the sort that'd put to shame many sailors of yore.

How many super models have you seen who are decked-out with ink?

I think that explains one angle partly.

I prefer non-tattooed models myself. I only like tattoos if they fit the theme I am working with.

I don't shoot models but have obviously given it thought over the years. As a result I realised that while tattoos are an interesting art form they cause me issue with photography. I guess it is because I am a little OCD but it really irritates me when the clothes the model wears obscures part of the tattoo. I also find that the pattern/colours of the tattoo can often clash with the pattern/colours of the clothes.

That means I would pretty much have to shoot the model nude to properly show off the tattoo and would be doing little more than photographing someone else's art. That doesn't really interest me (in much the same way that shooting a wall covered in graffiti doesn't interest me).

as an aside as a doctor I have to exam people in nude a fair bit and as we age and the gravity does it's thing and the tat fades the whole thing looks very stupid. I guess it is a generational thing and when that cohort ages and it is the norm it will get shrugged off

I hope the craze dies quickly, I work with people who spend thousands on tattoos, literally £2000 per arm ( what's that, $3000 per arm?? ), crazy money, I'm all for individuality but these days in the UK to stand out from the crowd, don't have a tattoo! Stood behind a bloke in a shop last week, shaven head, with F*CK YOU in large letters across the back of his head, lovely......
