11 Badass Tattooed Seniors Who Prove You Shouldn’t Worry About Your Tattoos When You’re Old
Everyone who has ever gotten a tattoo probably has been asked: “Have you thought how it will look when you get old?” One Dutch project named ‘TattooAge. Never too old’ aims to change the stereotype of old people regretting their tattoos by showing seniors confidently rocking their ink.
The project features 25 elderly people showing their tattoos (some of which got their first ones being 80 years old) and telling the stories behind them – their experiences, loss of loved ones and life lessons. “With this project, we not only want to tell the stories behind the tattoos but prove that age does not matter. It’s a fact – you are never too old for a tattoo!” say the creators of the project. They even published a book under the same name that features photographs and teaching material on tattoo culture.
The exhibition began its tour across the Netherlands on September 20, so make sure not to miss it. Check out the pictures of inked seniors in the gallery below!
