Re: Tattoos are part of my overall style

Very nice tattoos, @fairydogmother .  The two you've shown are very personal so I know they mean a lot to you!

 

I got my first tattoo at 60.  I'm 65 now and will be getting my third in May.

Re: Tattoos are part of my overall style

@Venezia Since I’m old, I can answer your question about what tattoos look like on old people. My skin, like that of most 70 year olds, is thin and fragile. Some texture changes. Crepey in many areas. Tattoos don’t look as crisp, as on a young person. however I don’t really care. I’m happy with my choices as they grow even older with me.

@HonestLife - Isn't that tattoo "The Artist Formerly Known as Prince"?  Or does it have another meaning?

@Venezia Yes, it's a Prince tattoo I got several years ago.

Yes, it's a Prince Tattoo. I'm going to get it refilled.

Re: Tattoos are part of my overall style

I began getting tattoos at age 60! I have 7 now and love every single one! People are shocked when they see that I have tattoos because I really don't seem the type. I get compliments on mine all of the time, especially the cute little heart I have on the nape of my neck. I have always worn a pixie so I just enhanced it with my heart tattoo. Heart

Re: Tattoos are part of my overall style

I'm really surprised how many of you have tattoos. I don't know anyone that has one other than a woman I worked with that had a tiny heart on her ankle.  They seem to be addictive for those who start.  Beyond the fact that they do not appeal to me personally, I get anxious just going to the dentist!
