    At some point we will all be old. All have saggy baggy skin. At that point we won't look hot regardless of the presence or absence of ink. So why not get tats when you're young??

    Also, as with everything these days, the technology behind the inks has improved radically over the years, so if you get a quality tattoo now, whilst body composition changes will make a difference later, the ink can still look good.

    Quality tattoo's cost money, but worth it in the long run..

    When you're 70+ years old, it's not your ink that's making you look less than amazing.

    This post should also be:

    - What your hairline looks like when you get older
    - what your muscle tone looks like when you get older
    - what your *everything* looks like when you get older, lol.

    Meh ageing is a privilege so I'd wear it with pride - and to be honest the guy in the pic looks pretty bad ass anyway.

    Because unless there is a good independent reason for getting them, such as cultural (eg., you're a Maori warrior) or have cosmetic skin situations which need amelioration, tattoos disfigure the body and make one look NOT as hot. And, you obviously are ageist. One does not necessarily have "saggy baggy skin" when one is older. If one takes care of what one gets in the genetic lottery, one ages gracefully and does not look like the mess shone in the OP's picture, who is decidedly not hot.

    It doesn't take that long for tats to get blurry and fuzzy, maybe only 15 years, certainly in 20 years. So if you get one in your 20s and you don't mind them being blurry in your 40s, go right ahead and get them while you're young.

    But keep in mind that tats are all the rage right now so if you're getting one you're in good company with all the rest of the lemmings following the latest fads.

    There's nothing the ink can do to prevent what is a natural body process, which is the skin cells dying and others splitting to replace the ones that died. It's a slow process but over years this process causes the ink to migrate. There's nothing in any ink that can prevent that.

    Sylvester Stallone and Micky Rorke are well into their 60s and have tats.

    I think this guy is pretty hot. But I like men my own age.

    Of course when you Google "old men tattoos" you get a very negative visual narrative. It's the stereotypical saggy skin.

    I'm not a fan of tattoos. I've yet to see anyone who I thought looked better with their tattoo, then without it. To me, it just looks sad and detracts from someone's appearance. I don't get why people these days get them. It's been one of the worst fads because it is so permanent. I think many who get them will regret it when they get older...and wiser.

    A perfectly fine example of how tattoos will still look nice on older people.

    But you'd need those pants to distract from the tattoos
