Note to self: Be careful where you tattoo

I enjoy people watching where there are crowds of people. I notice fashion styles, fashion faux pas, and so on. Today something new struck me! Be careful where you get your tattoo!
I have one now and plan another soon. They are smallish and represent special events in my life. Today I realized what happens to most women as they get older.
Let's just say, I think my first tattoo is safe. It's on the inside of my wrist and I don't think that area is going to sag too badly. I'm thinking the next one will be on the back of my neck or behind my ear.

None of mine are anywhere that sags, at least I hope my arms and legs wonít do that.

One thing I notice is when people donít bother to get them touched up, or they were poorly done.

My friend had the opposite problem. She lost a bunch of weight and a few of her tattoos did not benefit.

I got my first tattoo at 50 so I was very aware that I had better put it somewhere that wasn't going to start sagging soon. (My ankle). I've been thinking about getting another one, old as I am. If I do, it will be on the inside of my wrist.

Not to derail this thread, but here's something I never expected to experience: the pastor of the church I joined a few months ago noticed that I have a Tree of Life tattoo. Turns out that he has a Tree of Life tattoo on his shoulder. It's more elaborate than mine and very beautiful. I never expected to be comparing ink with my pastor, though.

Yes! Seeing older women at the pool with tattoos that don't have good placement and that haven't "weathered" very well is a major reason why I haven't got a tattoo. . To each his own, though!
