There’s nothing wrong with getting a tattoo. In fact, it’s one of the coolest things you can do. It’s a way of expressing your personality through various creative inks on your body, and the tattoo business is bigger than it has ever been.
But, permanent tattoos age over time, just like you, and they change overtime, in most cases losing some of the detail compared to when they were fresh.
Bored Panda has decided to compile a list of some tattoos side by side with what they looked like when they were freshly inked compared to what they looked like several years later, and it’s certainly interesting to see the results.
2. An old person
At least that’s what it looks like.
3. Intertwined snakes
4. Musical notes
5. Big waves
Don’t know what it says but I imagine it is of high importance to the person who got it tattooed.
7. Finger lightsaber
If only your finger would make the “pzzzzzz” noise when you lifted it up.
9. Winged horse
13. Jesus Christ?
Тhat’s what it looks like, anyway…
14. What looks like a swallow
17. Something rather scary
18. I have a question…
Why would you tattoo the inside of your mouth?
19. I don’t know what this is, but it’s amazing
20. A full pattern
So, before you get a tattoo, just know that all tattoos, no matter the complexity, size, area of the body where it is or color will wear overtime and it won’t look the same as the day when you first got it.
