Looks to me that they look best when covered with clothes. (Except maybe for the MILF in the top right pic.)



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

Mrs. cbelt3 took care of a number of WWII and Korean war veterans. When the canvas stretches and sags, the art takes on a different form. And the owner of the art really doesn't give a damn.

most of those look like recent tattoos, so they don't look too bad. I want to see what a tattoo that's been on a person for 40 years will look like so I can show it to my son to scare him away from ever getting one. But he's got no tolerance for pain, so I don't think he'd get one anyway.

Die young - leave a good looking corpse

Die old - not so much.

I don't know what they looked like when originally inked, but to me, they look OK now.

From the link:

"Honestly, art on aging skin doesn’t look too shabby. While most of us would imagine stretched out, sagging tattoos, these elders show us that tats still look sharp and really badass. If you stay in great shape and stay out of the sun to prevent the colours from washing out, your tattoo will live a regret-free life."

Those look pretty good compared to genuinely *old* tats.

My father had a clipper ship with the inscription U.S. Coast Guard 1942 tattooed on his arm. That's what I think of when I think of tattoos. It was also appropriate when you consider he was actually in the Coast Guard in 1942. As far as I can tell, the guys with the tribal tattoos never belonged to any real tribe and the women with the tramp stamps weren't raised in the jungle either. Call me old fashioned but I prefer clear skin over today's "beauty art"....on females anyway... The same goes for extra holes.

I served more than enough time in the Navy to have seen a zillion mottled green/brown tattoos that were once the pride and joy of the wearer but that became sad sludgy smudges of regret. The stories all boil down to this, regardless of the generation (i.e., for close to 100 years of tattooees in my own personal experience):
* I'd been wanting to get one for a while
* All the tattoo artists told me the modern inks will keep their colors, they're completely different than they used to be
* I was drunk/rebellious and out with a bunch of my friends (almost nobody gets a tattoo by themselves)
* They said it wouldn't hurt but yeah it really hurt
* It was really cool for a year, then I forgot about it, then I wished it wasn't there
* It looks like hell now, doesn't it?

Hopefully by conveying this valuable information I've saved somebody an unnecessary Navy commission/enlistment.

* hey, I specifically remember being told in high school that "bookkeeper" is the only word with three sets of consecutive repeating letters, but look, "tattooee" is another one! Down the foxhole of Googling reveals the following snippet of genius: "A dam has something called a flooddoor. The controls for the flooddoor are in the flooddoorroom. someone who attends a meeting in this room would be called a flooddoorroommeetinggoer."

My favorite bartender got Sebastian the crab from "The Little Mermaid" tatooed on the upper swell of her left breast. You can see most of it when she wears a tank top. So about 25 years later, she sports Sebastian the lobster. It really elongated. emoticon-tv-015

My dad had a tattoo. It was WWII, he hadn’t had leave in over a year, they finally landed in Panama. When he sobered up, he was back on the ship, all his money was gone, he had contacted a social disease, and he had a tattoo. It was a fly. Like a house fly, only 5 inches long. On his shin.

I had a student with a tattoo. Abel was 17:
“It’s a bulldog, Mr. Johnson!”
"Alright, let’s see it, Abel. Oh, hey, it’s Spike.”
“Who’s Spike? It’s a bulldog.”
“Yeah, but that’s Spike, from the Tweetie bird cartoons.”
“Nah, Mr. Johnson. The tattoo artist drew him. It’s just a bulldog."
(some googling)
“Why you gotta ruin everything, Mr. Johnson?"

Jail tats don't ever wear well.

I've heard people express ALMOST the same sentiments about getting a boat.

My dad had a military tattoo from his army days (1928-32). I think it was a eagle, but after 50+ years it looked more like a Rorschach test

Ha ha. I don't have any tattoos but I do have a boat! Both are approximately equally difficult to get rid of, though I don't know for sure as I've had the same boat for 25 years.
