Centenarian grandma gets first tattoo after being isolated in nursing home
A centenarian granny who spent months quarantined at a nursing home amid the pandemic took the plunge into body art by getting her first tattoo following her discharge from the facility, according to CNN.
Michigan’s Dorothy Pollack, who turned 103 on June 16 as she isolated in a Muskegon nursing home, decided to get an image of a frog inked on her arm last Friday.
“It was pretty exciting because years ago my grandson wanted me to get (a tattoo) and I wouldn’t do it,” Pollack toldCNN. “All of a sudden, I decided I would like to have one. And if I could, a frog.”
Laughing, she added: “Because I like frogs.”
Tattoo artist Ray Reasoner said Pollack “took it like a champ. I didn’t even see her wince. Maybe she had half a wince once. She was just so excited. It was an amazing experience.
“If someone over a century old tells you to do something for them, you just gotta do it.”
