NfkDumpling Hello. I've had my three tattoos done over the last few years, when I was over 60yrs! It's something I'd always wanted and never had the courage to do before but in the end I did - for me.
I had a henna one done first...a black scorpion on my shoulder, just to see how I'd cope with 'the comments' and after I found no one really took any notice, went on for the 'real thing'. It does hurt, well I think it does, though a lot of others say it doesn't...My three are ones I designed myself and therefore mean something to me. You can take in your own design to the Tattooist when you go (if you want to). No one really knows I have them because I've chosen to have them on areas of my body that aren't exposed a lot (eg: my shoulder, and I don't like wearing short sleeves as I see my arms as 'fat'). IMO if you want to do something for yourself that in no way harms anybody else, then go for it!!
