    Tattoos after big weight loss?

    Im not sure if this is in the right thread and I'm really sorry if it isn't but my gran isn't very well and I really want to get a tattoo of something to have her with me always but with 100 pounds to lose I'm worried how the tattoo will be altered when I am thin. Is it better to wait until the weight is off or will they not really change? Before and after photos would be amazing as well!

    Where were you thinking of getting it?

    I've got 1 across my back and 1 on my foot, neither changed all that much when I lost weight (though the back one is a bit faded now after putting some back on!), if you got one on your stomach it might change dramatically. Why not wait till you've lost it? That way you've got such a great motivation and a reason to do it!

    I have small script tattoos on my wrists and they havent really changed at all.
    Im after more, on my back, ribs, arms and ankles so Im waiting until Ive lost the weight as theyre all places I have to lose weight from and tone up. I suppose it depends on what you want and where you want it.

    I've got 4, 1 on my shoulder, 1 on ylthe nape of my neck,1 on my foot and 1 on the side of my hand. They haven't changed at all and at one point a few years ago I lost 113 pounds which quite a lot went bk on. I echo if u want one on your stomach or thigh then I'd wait cos that will definitely change with weight loss.

    Can you do something like putting 1 aside for every lb you lose as well? That way when you are at your target you'll have the cash for the tattoo as well... just another little incentive

    Mine have not altered at all but like many say they are not in fleshy places that stretch. If you want it somewhere like this then it won't make any difference but other places may make that Japanese inspired Koi carp come out looking like Nemo.

    On another note my next is planned when I get to where I'm happy. That's something I want commemorated with a permanent reminder to eat less cake.

    I'm thinking of getting the Gregg's logo. (Joke)

    I'm doing the same... I won't get my next one until I'm at target. I just need to find or create the perfect design now... and figure out where to put it. I only have one tattoo but that took over 10 years to get something I was happy with (I combined a few ideas myself) and where it would go.

    I want a new tattoo on my side so going to wait till I've lost all the weight. Got lots of incentives to get my weight off. Good luck to everyone.

    I have recently had 2 new tattoos over the xmas period a large tattoo on my fore-arm and 3 wise monkeys on an upper arm, one was a cover up, and in total I have 5 tattoos, and I have approx 5 st to lose, but my weight has gone up and down over the years and it hasn't altered the ones I had

    I know I am old and out of touch, and I am not being critical of other people's choices, but yikes!!! What is it with tattoos these days? I just don't get it.

    You would probably be horrified if you saw mine then

    I love them because I see them as body art. And for me the fact that I can have my grandmother be a part of me for the rest of my life makes me feel like it's something I want to do
