Age no barrier to joining tattoo club

25 June 2024
Published by: Lifeview Media |

Resident Gillian, 83, wanted to “get a tattoo to do something rebellious!” So we listened and acted!

We booked Gillian into a local tattoo artist, drove her to the appointment, and helped her through the whole process.

Gillian chose a hedgehog design, which she is immensely proud of.

“I’ve always loved hedgehogs,” she says.

Channel 9 News were contacted and came to cover the story for the 6pm News. https://youtu.be/CzSydGwoFLI

“One of my grandsons has got a tattoo, so I will go and see him and show him that grandma is just as good,” she said.
