have u ever seen an old lady with a tattoo?

I never have... I like the idea of a tattoo, but I cannot get over the idea that I will one day be a cute old lady ( I want to look like paula deen) and have a tattoo on me... especailly one that would have drooped with my skin and faded ( probably looking like a big age spot) ...... if you have tattoos are you worried about that? what do you plan on doing about that?

  • What's your definition of OLD? I have an aunt who is 50 and she has tatoos. I have 3 tatoos, but they are in places always covered by clothing, unless it's summer, then one on my shoulder. But I figure by the time I am old and wrinkled, I won't be wearing clothing that allows them to be covered. I love tatoos, but when I got mine between 18 and 20 I was also considering later down the road I will have a job working with children and having a tat on my ankle, foot, wrist, etc was exactly a positive look. So I consider myself to be smart having ones that aren't seen in "professional" settings.

  • I haven't seen a lot of tattoos on old women because really women didn't get tattoos in a lot of older generations. As our generation gets older, there will be a lot of us.

    I did think carefully about where I placed my tattoos, both for this reason and so I could blend in to a professional environment. All of my tattoos are in areas that I can cover with clothing or not depending on whether I want to show off my tattoos.
