It’s fascinating to read stories, and see examples, of how older generations (generations that have historically been hostile towards tattoos) are now embracing this artistic form. In some instances there may be life events (birth of a child, death of a close family member or friend) that inspires this change in attitude towards tattoos. Other motivations could be that there is a sense of no longer needing to adhere to society’s obtuse standards on what is or is not appropriate now they have reached a certain age.
In the end, I think it’s just a case of more and more people of all generations realizing that tattoos are gaining greater acceptance, which makes it easier for them to participate in adorning their own personal canvasses with artwork that is both visually appealing and emotionally touching. This trend will continue and there will be many more fascinating tales that will be told through the magic of body art.
