  2. That’s great! I love the simple line so much more than the photorealistic people you see. You titled it right, it shows her whole attitude. People
    are going to know how cool your grandma was long after she’s gone.

    Edit: Just noticed from the title you’re English. Your grandma gives way less fucks than I originally thought. As an American grandma, that would just be an ex-hippie throwing up a casual peace sign. 🙂

  3. That’s touching… I wish I could get my grandma’s hugs and kisses tattooed on me even though both my grandparents are gone and I’m a 46 year old man. Lol…. Grandma’s are the best.

  4. this is dope. love the simple linework instead of forcing the unnecessary details. after my grandpa died my 82 year old gram asked to come with me to get a tattoo. she got a little Celtic butterfly on her calf and she squeezed my hand so hard she bruised her own.

  5. I love this idea and the tattoo itself. Did you ask the artist to make the outline, or did you get it done before hand? I’ve been looking for someone on Etsy/fiverr to do something similar

  6. “Don’t let the bastards grind you down, don’t let them grind you down! “

    I don’t know if that was an intentional Toasters reference but your nan reminds me of mine.

    She died at 104 and broke her back at 99. And during that time, she still made fun of everyone in her rehab unit. She was a tough motherfucker. I hope I’m like both your nan and mine at some point. Love the tattoo as well. The minimalism is a great choice.
