At 61…I don’t think I’ll ever get used to seeing tattoos. No judgement….really. It’s just that there are so few things people like to “wear” everyday…forever. We change our jewelry, our makeup, our hair, our weight…and, of course, our clothing.
It’s a nice idea not to judge others because of their choices they made, but hey
fashion and fashion blogs are a permanent thread of judgment of bodies, faces, ages, styles, buts, beauty, where a concrete statement or impression can be more open than pretending not to judge.
Anonymous is correct. By it’s very nature, this, wonderful, site is all about judgment. To voice an opinion is what humans do. We like, or don’t like, agree, or don’t agree.
Cece-so true, couldn’t agree more. I am 63 and I just cringe when I see tattoos on these young people. I suppose they do it to ‘be individual’, but when they all have them, where’s the individuality?? To me, they are a major distraction from the actual person.
Yes, a shame. She’s stuck with this forever. At least this one won’t sag much as she ages! Where I live every aging, toothless, scraggly supermarket checker has tats. So do all the homeless. The “cool” faded long ago… all too soon these will be the boring reminders of youth long gone. All that pain and money could be better spent!
They do it because they want to. It has shit to do with being individual, or being like everyone else. The fit that they fed doesn’t make them any less cool, and the fact that people that are check out clerks, the homeless, and anyone else have one doesn’t make them less cool. It makes them MORE cool. Exclusivity is overrated. The Mutual Funds that only take buy ins of over a million are always the first to crash.
This is an excellent photo! It’s triangular, it has a nice bokeh, it shows a bit of the environment and the subject(s) were placed in ridiculously great posture(s). It made me stop a few minutes and even take the time to leave a comment.
I am 61 and I love the tattoo. It is perfect with her make-up, dress and wrap. Tattoos and their meaning change from generation to generation. We have no idea what this generation of young people might do when they ageâ€¦they have already re-invented how we work and created an innovative economy.

you can’t imagine the meaning of tatoos…personally even if i could, i will never change my tatoos because they’re not for fashion, they are my memories, my experiences and my life. That’s why i love them and that’s why I am proud to wear them and show them.
