Jack Reynolds The Oldest Person In The World To Get A Tattoo

Jack Reynolds: The Oldest Person In The World To Get A Tattoo

Meet Jack Reynolds, he’s 104 years old and the most elderly person to ever be tattooed.

Jack Reynolds is a 104 year old man from Chesterfield who already holds multiple world records. Just last year he became the oldest man to take the “ice bucket challenge”.

But yesterday, on his birthday, he became the oldest person to ever get a tattoo beating the previous world record holder by 10 years.

“I’m honoured that he has asked me to do it. I just hope I can do him proud and it’s all for a good cause. It’s brilliant.”

– Pete Who, Tattoo Artist

The new tattoo is an inscription that reads ‘Jacko’ with his birthdate in his own handwriting. Interestingly, the oldest man in the world to be tattooed didn’t do it just for the fun – the initiative was undertaken to raise money for the Ashgate Hospice – it turns out that tattooing in a controversial manner was the best way to get the word out.

Jack, you rock. And we’re sure you’ve got a few more records up your sleeve. (at 104, nearly everything you do is a record)

#RomInk - TATTOOS: Ritual.Identity.Obsession.Art

#ROMink – Tattoos. Ritual. Identity. Obsession

Earlier today we stopped into the Royal Ontario Museum for a quick media-only look into the brand new #ROMink exhibit. To say that we were impressed, would be a drastic understatement. 

#ROMink is a showcasing of the deep history of tattooing that features works from some of the world’s most renowned tattooists including Horiyoshi III, Xed Lehead, Ed Hardy, Paul Booth, Yann Black, and more. It examines the intertwined connection behind tattoo cultures, their connections with humanity, and spiritual meanings & obsessions over the 5,000 year history of the practice.

The exhibit was curated by the ROM’s Chris Darling, Kenneth Lister, and Anne and Julienne of HEY! Pop Culture – the initial curators of the event at the Musée du quai Branly.

The morning started with a meet & greet and overview of the exhibit from the museum’s CEO, head executives, and the exhibits curators. We were delightfully surprised to hear that after only 2 days of holding his position, Josh Basseches (CEO), is looking forward to a future of new and experimental exhibits at the museum, the first of which is Tattoos. Ritual. Identity. Obsession. 

The exhibit was originally held at the Musée du quai Branly by Stephane Martin and drew over 12 million visitors in it’s duration. It will be launched in Toronto on April 2nd and run until September 5th.

Take a look at the schedule of events for #ROMink below, and some images from the event.

Comedian Gets A Tattoo Of Donald Trump Sucking A Dick

Comedian Gets A Tattoo Of Donald Trump Sucking A Dick

22 year old Los Angeles comedian Elijah Daniel has shocked and delighted the world with a tattoo of Donald Trump sucking on an erect penis. 

Daniel reached out to his twitter fans and asked for 5,000 retweets, in exchange he would get the now infamous tattoo inked onto his leg. Daniel is the author of a Donald Trump gay erotica novel that blew up the internet earlier this year.

5,000 retweets later, Daniel obliged the request and fed the public’s need to see this one of a kind tattoo happen. He live streamed the event yesterday at 6:30 PM for everyone to see, and here is the glorious result.

Cardinals Fan Gets Super Bowl 50 Tattoo

Cardinals Fan Gets Super Bowl 50 Tattoo

It’s that time of the year again. The time when NFL fans make the biggest mistakes of their lives by tattooing hopeful Super Bowl logos onto their body.

Last week, we saw an atrocious Patriots commemorative championship tattoo, and this week we bring you this premature Arizona Cardinals Super Bowl 50 Tattoo.

The Cardinals have yet to make the big dance, and are going up against the #1 seeded Carolina Panthers. We definitely admire the team dedication, but aren’t too sure about the need for immediate gratification.

In any case, Go Cards!

The story also comes complete with this awesome meme that has been floating around the internet.

One does not simply mess up a Pats tattoo

When one gets a tattoo, they should usually do their research to make sure it’s accurate. One Pats fan is finding this out the hard way.

At the least he got the years correct.

15 Tattoos Celebrities Got Wrong

#15 – Even More Rihanna

Third time’s the charm: RIHANNA! A long Sanskrit prayer on her hip reads
“forgiveness, honesty, suppression and control”. Sounds like diet tips, doesn’t it? Too bad about the lost in translation spelling error. The tat actually means “long-suffering, truthfulness, self-restraint, inward calm, fear and fearlessness”. Perhaps this should be her mantra when adding – and removing – those etched errors…
