Photos That Show How Tattoos Change With Time

Have you ever thought of getting a tattoo? There are a lot of things to consider before you say 'yes', and none of them you can really take lightly. Because tattoos are forever… right? That's what we're told, at least, or what most people believe. But it's not always the case. It's true that a tattoo rarely disappears altogether, but ask anyone who's ever got one: it doesn't look the same after a couple of years.

Sometimes it doesn't even look the same after a few months. This is something important to remember if you're still deciding whether you want to go ahead with this idea or not. Yes, the design you have in mind is perfect, but ever wondered how it'll look in the future? These 50 pictures of how some tattoos have aged will prove to you that literally, nothing lasts forever, even when they are supposed to.
