LIFE: Young & Old

Since a young age, tattoo’s have always intrigued me in a romantic kind of way. It’s an art form that exemplifies so much about a person, personality, and ultimately…that person’s life. Naval tattoo’s above all else are glamorized from Sailor Jerry to modern day tattooers, but for a better reason than most. These photographs from LIFE are probably my favorite out of the hundreds I have seen. Simply because it shows young men first putting ink on themselves in a day where not much was known or accepted about the art of tattooing. It then shows those same kind hardened men years later with more stories and wisdom to accompany those chapters in their lives.
