    my boyfriend is 74 he has one "finally", that was the last boat he was going to buy and that was about 30 years old, ha, he would be covered like a maori (sp?) if that was true, but his a little faded but still looks great, now he has another, a rooster, that was a dare, and popeye, that is his nick name, they really do look good, but i think men age different than women, his skin is very thick, and he spends a lot of time in the sun due to his work and is in great shape because of his work, they do look good, his next is betty grable, but if i put a dolphin on me (will be 60 in jan)it would most likely look like a dead mackrel in march,me i am going to pass, but i do think they are cool, just not me, my son looks like a hulking beach bum with his daughters name him , but he is thirty, i told him, just put it where it will not sag, i do not do pain, just a coward

    You just need to be careful where you put them... not in a place that distorts with the effects of long term gravity :-)

    A quilting tatoo would be the only one I would choose.
    However, I don't want something permanent on my body.
    I've paid too much money for art on my walls and have grown tired of looking at them. Too easy to take them off the wall. lol So none for me!

    my 75 year old grandmother has a pierced navel :shock:

    as far a tatoos aging well or not... wrinkled saggy skin isn't exactly attractive all on it's own... so until then I will enjoy my tatoo, and after -- I'll be to old and saggy to care (I hope) or if I do, I just won't try to twist and turn myself around to look at it :D

    We'll all have cataracs so who cares! Ha
    LOL! If I ever did get this tattoo it would be in a place that only I or my spouse would see it. When I'm old and wrinkly I wouldn't be showing off that area anyway. ;)

    would love to but very phobic of needles I tend to panic. People laugh because I give shots to animals all day. I just tell them I'm not getting the shot so its okay. I compare myself to an aggressive crybaby chihuahua when it comes to needles. I act like a baby and also may bite hah hah

    I don't have an issue with needles so I don't know if this help any, but the gun doesn't actually look like a needle -- it kinda looks like an old caligraphy pen (quill?) unless you get right up to it

    I remember when my grandmother was in her 70's she went to Miami Beach with a bunch of her friends for two weeks. When she came home she had had her eyebrows tattooed so she wouldn't have to put eyebrow pencil on anymore. My father told her she was acting like a naughty teenager. LOL I thought it was awesome.

    I was in a really cool quilt shop in Austin. The woman running the place has lots of sewing/quilting tattoos. The fabric was wonderful and great priced AND that woman was a sweetheart. :)

    You know, the more I look at the tattoo on the first page, the more I like it. I just might print the picture out and take it to a tattoo parlor to see what they would charge me to get it done. I have a feeling $200 or more might be the price...

    I've been thinking of getting tatoo of one of my vintage Singers. I have three tats, so the needle part doesn't bother me at all.

    I have a tatoo on my right ankle, everyone says that is one of the most painful places to get one, but I didn't think it was too bad. My girls and I all have the same purple rose with the symbol for love behind it, it holds special meaning for us.
    As long as it is small and tasteful i don't see a reason not to.
