Ladies with tattoos ... Tattoo and weight gain/loss???

I want to know from experience not guessing ... if any of you or someone you know have gotten tattoos and then gotten bigger or smaller and if the tattoo was affected by the weight change? People say they don't but I haven't seen any before and after pics to get an idea.

  • I've thought about getting one, but I want it on my shoulder which is not usually affected by weight gain/loss. I would imagine if you get a tattoo in an area that gets stretch marks it would affect the tattoo.

  • I have a male friend who is has tattoos from his neck to this toes. I mean fully covered, even his wing wang was the purple one eyed monster. He gained weight and they all still looked good. I is 6 ft. I would guess he was 155lbs. to begin and is now 200lbs.

  • I have 2 on my back (obviously not affected) but I also have one on my upper thigh, and while I got a few stretch marks there the tattoo still looks the same, I also have one on my ribs that wasn't affected at all.

  • Thank you to all you ladies :) Gonna get one on my lower back but I need to lose 100 pounds and I didn't want to get one if it would look stupid if I lost weight.
