20 Old People With Tattoos Who Still Look Great
The tattoo industry is one of the fast-growing industries in the world. A study in 2012 found around 45 million Americans (21% of the population) have at least one or more tattoos, with Americans spending a whopping $1.65 billion getting inked. As Tatto Pro points out, the industry has a net worth of over $3 billion that is set to increase by 8% annually over the next decade. In short, becoming a tattoo artist is looking more and more like a lucrative career these days. It also means there are plenty of tattoo artists about the place, but before you go getting inked, ask yourself what old people with tattoos look like.
Many of us get tattoos on a whim, during a drunken night out, or make a hasty decision when bored. This can often result in less than impressive tattoos adorning your body. That’s why you should always think about what you want as a tattoo as it will be there for life (unless you can afford to have it lasered off).
While some might think getting a tattoo while they are young is cool, some regret it when they get too old age. But there are also just as many people who look cool as fuck with tattoos when they reach middle age and don’t care what others think. While you should always take into consideration what you are getting tattooed on your body, worrying about what your body art will look like when you are old shouldn’t cross your mind. There’s more chance the tattoos will give you an edge and make your grandkids think you’re super cool.
To help put your mind at rest, we have collected some images of tattooed seniors to show you that no matter what age you are, tattoos still look great. Whether you’re an old man or an old lady, tattoos look awesome on everyone. So don’t be turned off by what you think you might look like and live in the now and go get yourself some ink.
