How old were you?

When you got your first tattoo? I'll be 40 this fall and I'm thinking about getting my first one, but it feels a little too much like a "midlife crisis" thing to do, lol.

  • I was 21. My honest opinion on tattoos are if you truly want one and it has some sort of symbolic meaning to you go get it regardless of your age. If you are unsure about why you want one please don't get one. I waited 3 years to get the one I have because I wanted to make sure I would like it, it is 4 years old and I still love it. Freedom of expression is a beautiful thing, don't worry about what others say about your age, honestly, they shouldn't be worrying about your body. :o) What are you thinking about getting?!
