Never too old
« on: November 12, 2013, 09:56:00 AM »
Not many people get their first tattoo in their 70's and you might think that someone like a Dimbleby would get one a bit more upmarket than his birthsign tattooed on his top right hairy (allegedly) shoulder. In men's sport and particularly football and rugby it is almost unusual if a player has not got a tattoo.

Watching Arsenal v Glasgow last week-end, I am not sure I saw one at all, although I believe there may have been a few covered up. So, why have the women not followed the men's lead or is it just a matter of time before we see a 'Beckham' sleeve or a Nile Ranger head tattoo on the girls/women/ladies?

Many others in England, they just all go on social media saying "another tatoo today"

Natasha Kai had loads of tattoos - i couldn't find a recent photo - she disappeared from twitter quite some time ago, but i know she posted a pic and she didn't appear to have room for any more tattoos - so this one must be quite an early photo.


I know Jill Scott has a few tattoos - 4 i think she said - she replied to me on twitter when i said about having 14 (im now up to 18).All of mine are kept covered.
Natasha Dowie also has quite a few - but they are always kept covered.

I guess I was referring to the more visible ones that the men tend to have done - although, I know that France's Thomis has something on her leg....

Here is an 85-year-old who has scored 3 goals this season.  He started playing for his present club in 1938 and he wants more match-time:
