I have seen many heavyweight people who had tattoos put on their bodies when they were younger and thinner. Some of the tattoos were obviously small birds or geckos. Not any more. Now their tattoos look more like distorted chickens or alligators.
Young people beware: what may look fashionable on you today may not be tomorrow.
