How will full body tattoo’s look when you’re old? by @queentheprophet
Just food for thought Fam….
Surprisingly I couldn’t find too many images of elderly people covered in tattoos. Then I realized that really, it’s our generation that covering your entire body in tat’s is popular and we’re not senior age yet. I’m a fan of tattoo’s, I’m an artist and I think personally they’re beautiful. However, I did learn the hard way that placement of the tat is very important. I got one on my arm at 18 and by the time I was 24 I hated it and wished I never put it there. I always recommend putting them in a place that you can cover if you have to or in case you don’t like it later. It’s very trendy to get multiple tats and nobody really thinks about what that’s going to look like by the time you’re 70. So just for fun, I decided to pull up some pictures. I know that for me, I have decided to make sure any future tattoos will be in a place I will not want to cry when my skin’s elasticity decreases LOL.

Regardless of whether or not you’re visibly tattooed when you’re 70, you’re going to be wrinkled. As a heavily tattooed 27 year old (with no intention of stopping any time soon either) I am not worried about having old tattoos sagging under the weight of a life well lived, I am more concerned about making sure that my attitude towards others shines brighter than my tattoos. Just some food for though.
Great blog though.
Amen! lol Shine on Sis
