Lots of people enjoy getting tattoos to show off their unique style. But not everyone likes it. Kerstin Tristan used to be one of those people who didn’t like tattoos at all. She is 56 years old, a mom, and a grandmother. But in 2015, something happened that changed her mind.

Even though getting a lot of tattoos can be expensive, Kerstin decided to cover her whole body in them. Before 2015, she actually hated tattoos. But that year, she got her first one, and it completely changed how she felt about them.

“I just wanted to try something new. We only live once, and I felt that at my age, I should do something real,” she said.

Since 2015, she has spent around 30,000 euros (approximately US $32,000) just on getting tattoos for her body. Luckily, many people love and appreciate what she’s done.

She has become quite popular on social media. On Instagram, more than 190,000 people follow her, and her videos on TikTok have millions of views.

She’s not shy about showing how she looks. On Instagram, she shares pictures where you can see her entire tattoo-covered body. But if you look back just ten years ago, she didn’t have any tattoos and looked very different. Sometimes, she even posts pictures to compare how she looked before and after getting tattoos.

The German-based influencer has images of vibrant roses on her legs, a leopard print tattoo on her shoulders, and several detailed portraits on her arms. These tattoos happen to be among dozens of others on her entire body.

She loves how she looks now, saying, ‘”When I look at myself in the mirror, I see a beautiful meadow full of flowers that one has to love.”

And she is not the only one who loves her look, one fan wrote, “A beautiful work of art.” While, another person wrote, “Wow stunning photo.”

Expressing yourself is not something that should end with age. If anything, Kerstin is a wonderful example of how age should not define how you choose to express yourself to the world. What do you think of her tattoos? Let us know in the comments.
