Tattoos; you either love them or you hate them. Me, personally? I love them! But even if I didn't, I wouldn't go around telling people who had them that they're going to regret getting them someday because A) It's none of my freakin' business, and B) I am yet to meet anybody who got a tattoo they really loved to one day turn around and go "Damn, I really regret doing that."... It just doesn't happen.

coolest old people you have ever seen in your whole entire life. 

"how exactly is this gonna look when I get older?"

"Oh, they'll get saggy!"

Because let's face it, life is FILLED with nay-sayers. And they are EVERYWHERE.

 WAIT? Skin SAGS!? This is TOTALLY brand new information to EVERYBODY! Listen, a little saggin' never hurt no one, and it certainly ain't hurtin' these guys' tattoos, you get me?

Mona Lisa? Or Van Gogh's Sunflowers?

11. There's also that HIGHLY annoying question of "Ohhh, well they're not very professional are they? Won't you miss looking professional?"

Listen, everyone is entitled to their opinion, but if you're one of those people who questions the professionalism or skill set of, let's say, a doctor, just because they have tattoos then your opinion is trash and I do not want to hear it.

12. Positives: you'll always look effortlessly awesome. Like, ALWAYS.

Have you ever been able to roll out of bed and look THIS bad a*s? Nope, me neither.

13. And no one will ever, EVER dare to pick a fight with you.

14. And don't you dare listen to what anybody (especially if you happen to be a lady) - sleeves will ALWAYS be beautiful.

I remember years ago, a friend of mine decided she wanted to get a sleeve and oh I can still to this day remember the outrage from her mom and other women in the town "But you'll look so BUTCH!", "Nobody will want to marry you", "That's not very ladylike is it!?"

Crazy.

15. And real talk; you CAN actually cover full-body pieces when you want to, or desperately need to.

Spot the Difference: Same guy, different opinions.

16. And those pieces that you loved when you were younger...

...If they're important to you, you'll love them until the end.

17. They'll grow older with you...

Older and not to mention, even cooler than you were when you first got them done!

18. In fact, maybe you'll even decide to continue ADDING to them as you grow older, because why the heck not!?

 Who says that you have to stop getting tattoos after a certain age? Got a sleeve you need finishing? Then you go and freakin' finish it Booboo! No doubt you'll end up on that tattoo parlors Instagram page too.

19. And no matter what, they'll ALWAYS be a part of you. (I mean, that's kind of the point of them, isn't it?)

you think about your tattoos... it's your body after all! Whether you add to them, keep them or get rid of them, they will always

20. And did I mention... you'll always look so, SO bada*s.
