When the current Mrs T asked me what I wanted for my 60th, I said a greenhouse and a tattoo...

Well, it's taken 2 years - oh, the greenhouse is producing tomatoes, chillies, pak choi and lettuce btw - no, it's the other thing.

So on Saturday, at 1200, at House of Hoodoo in Harrogate, it will be inked !

I will follow up in due course :mrgreen:

Surely the sniggering hound beats Milou which was named after Hergé's girlfriend?

And Muttley flies!

Personally I dont "get" tatoos...But I still say go for it.

I would say its better to know you want a tatoo at 60 and regret not doing it earlier, than think its cool at16 and later regret doing it... :thumleft:

Why not? Go to a reputable artist with good hygiene practices and go for it. I wanted one for my fortieth but didn’t get it until I was almost fifty - terrified of needles. It turned out to be no problem, so I got another. Good artists can be booked up for months, or even years. Enjoy!

As the title says - I am of an age where I want to catch up on things I missed !

When you look at our dog, Woody, you will see why Snowy is more appropriate, I use the tag on Twatter.

It is going on the top of my arm and I will pop a snap on next week !

Get old, get crazy :pirat:

When they dig your leathery carcass out of the peat bog that you stuffed into while stealing a Piper Cub aged 106, those 46th century archaeologists will determine that you were in a strange Victorian bird hunting cult and that your mysterious tattoo was probably given to you in a skygod initiation ritual.

At a supermarket checkout, some time ago, I said to the middle aged assistant - “that’s a nasty bruise you’ve got there”. Her tattoo, obviously done ages ago, had blurred into, well, what looked like she had been smacked on the arm.
Time is not kind for tattoo wearers.

My wife said that the only reason I ever did any work for the police was to give me a chance of the copper finding me recognising me and taking me home.
