16 completely bad-ass tattooed senior citizens who regret nothing.

These tattooed senior citizens shut down the ‘You’ll regret it’ tattoo advice. Shut. It. Down.

When I was 18, I got a tattoo at Schoolies.

I was fuelled by teenage bravado and a few too many Bacardi Breezers, and everyone told me I would live to regret it. Big time.

“What will it look like when you get old and wrinkly?” they asked. “Won’t it be weird to have a tattoo when you also have grandkids?”

This grandma is our spirit animal.

Well, here are 16 awesome senior citizens who are completely owning their tatts, and who are also giving me hope for the future.
