That said, there are still quite a few places in the U.S. where tattoos have yet to shed their stigma.   See cities

According to George Preti, Ph.D., of the Monell Chemical Senses Center, only one is caused by a complex cocktail of sweat, skin and bacteria. Under the right conditions -- hot, muggy weather, dry skin, stress and smoke -- this malodorous stew can thrive and create body odor, Preti says. Assessing climate history and smoking data, we ranked the smelliest regions in the U.S. See if your city made the list.   See Cities
