The next time someone says you’re going to hate your tattoos when you grow older, show them this project. "TattooAge. Never too old” is an incredible project that features 25 fully-tatted senior citizens and the stories behind their tattoos. They’ll be on the road all through the Netherlands from September 20, so if you’re in that area, make sure to catch a glimpse.
Behind every tattoo, there’s a beautiful story waiting to be told. From the gift of a grandchild getting immortalized in ink, to the eternal memory of a loved one, this project covers it all.
Jan is living proof that tattoos look just as banging at any age.
This man has decorated his body from head to toe. Some of them may have faded a bit across the years, but the meaning attached to each tat is still vivid in his heart.

Perhaps, Chris’ chest tattoo was seen as a sign of rebellion, but today, it’s nothing but a beautiful work of art.
There isn’t a single spot on Cor’s body that hasn’t been covered in ink, and we absolutely dig the badass designs that decorate his body.
He’s wearing an armor of ink, art and memories all over his skin and he’s not afraid to share it with the world.
If you have any tattoos, you probably heard your parents say, “I can’t wait to see what all those tats are going to look like when you get old.”
If you do, then show them this pic. Albertina is sitting in her living room, hiding a pretty rad secret: she actually has a tattoo. She got her first tattoo in 2017, and it was a gift from her grandchildren when they went on a trip to Amsterdam.
So many folks balk at the idea of getting a tattoo, and how it’s going to look when they get older. But not Jack.
He’s wearing his heart on his sleeve, or rather, his memories on his arm with this beautiful tattoo that probably has a secret hidden meaning.
