These 15 Old Peeps With Tattoos Make Me Wish I Was More Exciting [Gallery]

You know older folks with tattoos were bad ass growing up because tattoos didn’t become a popular trend until the early ’90s. Prior to that it was only criminals and folks in the Navy who really had tattoos. So if you’re old and you’ve got a full sleeve you’ve probably lived life in one way or another. I can’t imagine how these people were socially ostracized for doing something that was seen as unclean, unsavory and “barbaric.” I think it’s pretty cool and so what if the images get a bit wrinkly? It’s punk rock.
