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)
