I’m a little post 40. Am I too old to get a conservative tattoo on the inside of my lower arm? If not, an arrow? words that inspire me? What do you think ladies? Also it’s to cover a scar.

Too old?! Never! Time is a social construct. Go get that tat and post a pic so we can all gush over it when you do!

Decide what you want and then keep it in your mind for a few months. If you still want it, go for it! Tattoos are becoming much more normalized, I don’t in any way think you’re too old and you presumably have the resources now to go to a much better artist than you would have as a younger person.

We’re in a creative industry and I believe tattoos can be another vehicle to express that creativity.

Never too old! I’m three years post 40...😉 And I already have my next tattoo planned out. And it’s definitely not my first!

You probably did this, but maybe make sure that the scar tissue you are trying to cover can absorb color uniformly so it’ll look the way you want it to.

Never too old! I would just consult a tattoo artist about the best placement. As you age, unfortunately so does your skin. Lower arm I would think is still one of the better spots to get tattooed, but some artists are more skilled/comfortable tattooing “older” skin. It all depends on the placement and complexity

Get the tattoo!

Never too old

Do it!!!

Do it!

Don’t be crazy. 40 isn’t even old!

Do it. I'm post 40 and got one in the same spot last January. Zero regrets. I love it.

Hi everyone,

Can anybody help me with an idea that how long (maximum) Cognizant HR takes time to call back if there is a positive feedback? My 3 rounds of technical interview took 1 month to complete and went well. It's been 2 weeks since I interviewed for the round 3.

Thanks 😊
