Large and obvious birthmarks can make school life hard for children, but a couple of caring parents in the UK have found a controversial way to combat this issue. Tanya and Adam Phillips got huge tattoos stretching up their right legs…

“I was stood at a check out till, when I saw an old couple whispering and staring at Honey-Rae’s leg. I was distraught. It was first time I had taken her out without covering her up and it confirmed all my worries and fears. People are cruel without even realising”

“We had talked about having duplicate tattoos done for a little while but that day my mind was made up”

“When the swelling went down, I showed Honey-Rae, and she gently touched it and smiled as she said ‘Match,’ pointing to her own leg. If I’d have needed any reassurance that I’d made the right decision that was it.”

With more and more of the general population getting tattooed, there’s always the thought of how body art will look as people age. This question is answered through photographs of senior citizens who’ve partially stripped down and show us how their tattoos are faring in their twilight years. Some of the ink quality is better than others, of course, but a lot of what we see still is recognizable and looks relatively sharp on their aging skin. These images give you an idea of how your own tattoo(s) might mature, especially if you take good care of yourself.

Tattoos came attached with major stigmas until recently. They were often associated with sailors and prisoners, but have since made their way into mainstream culture. It’s interesting to think that not long ago, the people with this extensive body art probably endured some form of prejudice before gaining wider acceptance.

I wish I could hear the stories behind their awesome ink. Share this if these senior inspired to be yourself without worrying about the “later.”

Starbucks
A Starbucks Barista in Michigan has 30 days to remove a tattoo as small as a penny, or she will be fired. She wears the tiny tattoo on her hand.
The woman told MyFoxDetroit she recently received the ultimatum to get rid of the tattoo in 30 days or resign. “It’s just a little heart; you can cover it up with your thumb,” the barista named Kayla told the station Wednesday. The station did not give her last name. “It’s not offensive to anyone,” Kayla explained, according to dailynewsen.com.
“Now, I am currently being informed immediately after five decades of acquiring this tattoo, becoming hired in that, I have to get rid of it or resign from my position.”
