    Default Tattoos and growing muscles

    Considering getting a tat on one of my biceps. But it's also the muscle that seems t be growing the fastest\biggest. How big can you get before you mess up a tattoo?

    Hi mate.

    I have tatt's, as far as i'm awar they grow in proportion of your muscles.

    unless you actually grow in length i think you will be fine!

    Yeah, the only concern sometimes seems to be their appearance in "old age," when the skin becomes loose. I have a buddy who is an embalmist/mortician, and he refuses to get tattooed.

    I got up to 310 pounds, and my tats looked OK.

    The worst thing for tats is age.

    lol...Its true what you say, when people get older and muscle tissue shrinks through lack of activity and the skin loses its elasticity, the tattoo's look like a wrinkled canvass...

    All the more reason to get tattooed! You'll be encouraged to continue working out!

    Thx for the replies guys. I just want a simple tattoo around my arm, like the barbed wire going around Edward Norton's arms in American History X ( look at WyomIAN's profile pic). When I get old and wrinkly it will problt just look like a green line goig around my arm lol
