There was a time were tattoos were strictly taboo, but a new survey finds that 40% of Americans live with someone who is inked up.
One of those people is our very own Carson Daly. He donned his finest sleeveless dress shirt on TODAY this morning to show off his tats to Matt Lauer, Savannah Guthrie, and the rest of the morning news crew.
“I’m like a circus freak around there!” Carson joked earlier this morning. He and Weekend TODAY meteorologist Dylan Dreyer were the only ones who copped to getting tattoos.
Carson is currently sporting eight tattoos and all but one of those have a very sentimental meaning.
“They’re for my father who died, my son, and my grandfather who was a Green Beret in the military, so they’re all that kind of thing.”
What’s the one outlier? A crab claw pocket knife that was created to cover up an ex-girlfriend’s name!
Watch Carson explain the stories behind his tattoos below:
