Survey Finds You Might Be Too Old For a Tattoo or Reality TV


British researchers polled 1,000 people on trends, fashion, and a number of other categories to see what age was perceived as “too old” for an individual to partake in different trends, activities, types of clothing, and a variety of other things. The survey seems to hone in on the age of 30 (or near it) for being too old for most things respondents were asked about, with a few exceptions.

Among a greater list of results, here are some of the highlights for perceived “age limits” for different things:

  • High-fiving anyone – 27 years old
  • Getting a new tattoo – 31 years old
  • Wearing Crocs – 33 years old
  • Snowboarding – 36 years old
  • Using emoticons in texts and tweets – 26 years old
  • Having a body piercing – 29 years old
  • Having a goatee beard – 34 years old
  • Wearing a mini-skirt – 27 years old
  • Watching reality TV shows – 31 years old
  • Using short-form terms like LOL – 29 years old
  • Kissing on the street – 24 years old
  • Going to a music festival – 41 years old
  • Wearing very high heels – 34 years old
  • Wearing a Speedo – 26 years old
  • Skateboarding – 26 years old
  • Wearing a bikini – 48 years old
  • Wearing a baseball cap – 32 years old
  • Dancing at a nightclub – 37 years old
