live life like its the only one you will ever have because regardless of your religious beliefs or not, even those with the most faith still wonder if perhaps they are wrong every now and again and maybe when you die, thats it.
im sure even the pope wonders if perhaps he wasted his life worshiping god from time to time , it says nothing bad about his character ,of his faith, its just human nature to wonder.
even if i knew for sure and had proof that i would be reincarnated, i would still choose to live every day as if it were my last and my current life as my only one i will ever have, why would i do that with proof that i will have many more? because life is so amazing and precious, it deserves nothing less, and wasting just a second thinking that a tattoo you will enjoy 95 percent of your life you might no longer like during your last 5 percent is not only silly from a spiritual perspective but a mathematical one as well.
wrinkled arms with wrinkled tattoos or wrinkled arms covered in age spots, varicose veins and sun spots are both equally unappealing and thats the fact of aging.
id rather be the wrinkled guy with wrinkled tattoos because at least there was a time where i looked on the outside the way i wanted to and lived with no fear or regrets.
just for the record, its an amazing piece of artwork, perfect placement and something i bet he will never regret getting no matter what the age, in his later years he will look upon the withered and sagging tattoo and smile while thinking of the wild and crazy things he did when that tattoo looked fresh, things he can no longer do but at least he has the memories.
i like that image much more than the guy sitting next to him at the nursing home who never got a tattoo because he worried how it would look when sitting in that exact spot,in the same chair, thinking of all the other things he chose not to do because it might effect his so called"golden years" i see nothing golden about losing your mind, memory, ability to keep from peeing your pants,losing all your friends , family and loved ones only to be visited less and less often until you die, and your obituary has little to say about your life because every decision you made in life was made with "how will this effect my old age"
i just recently purchased a puppy, i am enjoying this dog so much i cant even begin to explain.i know that i will have many, many years laughing at his antics, enjoying his company and his loyalty, but im well aware that i will outlive this dog by several dog lives. did i stop to think that maybe i should deprive myself and my puppy an amazing an happy life because one day he will grow old and i will be faced with the unhappy moment of having to watch him die? of course not. had i decided not to buy my puppy out of fear i would one day have to put him down, all i would have achieved was ensuring a life that was dog less, and as a dog owner, this is a life i could never imagine, the same goes for the tattoo choice and any other choice you may be faced with where the circumstances may change with age.
picture that tattoo to be your highschool sweetheart who you marry the day its tattooed on your arm, sure, she will age as well, and wrinkle and no longer will other mens heads turn when you walk down the street holding her hand, but shes yours none the less and you love her none the less, and dont forget, just like divorce, theres always laser tattoo removal if you cant stand to live with her anymore,lol.

hows it gonna look when hes old and withered? i hate when people consider that when deciding on a tattoo, it will look old and withered like the rest of your body, if you live life wondering if decisions that you will enjoy in the prime of your life you may regret when you are 90 years old and are at deaths door, you will never have truly lived.what? if a 90 year old man decided in his youth not to get tattoos, would that all of a sudden make him look like he was no longer 90 years old, no! it will make him look like a 90 year old who lived a very safe and boring life.when archiologists found the frozen tattooed viking in the ice 10 years ago totally preserved, they read his tattoos and they basically told the story of the mans life and what he found important in life, go ahead and decide not to do things,like get tattooed because you might not look "normal"later in life and if future archiologists ever find you, thell just toss you aside and say this man did nothing special, and wasted his century on earth worrying how he might appear to others on the last days on earth. silly thinking for silly people. we inevitably age, we achieve what we can, while we can and we spend our old age remembering it with a huge smile, thats a happy man, not one who regrets what he should have done because he worried how it might effect his nursing home days.lol.

What I think is sad is that he has shaved armpits.

Oh, that's going to look dandy when he's an old withered guy. And I say that as a guy with tattoos.
