Abstract

The prevalence, attitudes and risk knowledge towards tattooing and body piercing among young people in Hong Kong are unknown. Through a questionnaire survey, these aspects of body art in college students were studied. With a response rate of 84.7% (459/577), the prevalence of body art was estimated to be 4.75% (22/459). An egocentric motive, drinking habit and friend/family member with body art were found to be associated with those with body art. Knowledge of the related risk was mostly recognised. Compared with the western countries, our prevalence of body art is low while the associated factors are similar.

香港年輕人的紋身和身體穿孔盛行率、看法和風險知識,目前所知不多。通過問卷調查,我們研究了大學生的形體藝術以上提及的事項。回應率為84.7%(459/577),形體藝術的盛行率估計為4.75%(22/459)。個人自我中心、飲酒習慣以及家人朋友有著形體藝術等因素,皆被發現與形體藝術有相關聯。而相關風險知識絕不貧乏。對比西方國家,本地形體藝術的盛行率較低,而相關因素則類同。
