We all save up for our older days, maybe putting some savings away to reach some of our dream goals, such as travelling or your dream house.
A grandma had a different dream for her life savings, as she decided to cover her entire body from the neck down in tattoos at the age of 55. Despite previously hating body ink, Kerstin Tristan spent an overall £25,000 on tattoos over five years and believes they give her "energy".
The 55-year-old grandmother from Leipzig, Germany, enjoys her career as a model. She was a former taxi driver. Now she loves showing off the finished result of her tattoos on her Only Fans account and Instagram account.
On her first trip to a tattoo studio, Kerstin decided to get a bright tattoo on her arm. Since then, she hasn't stopped decorating her body in ink and has now covered 90 percent of her body in a floral and butterfly theme.
Kerstin said she got to the point where she "simply couldn't stand" her skin anymore and explained in a Youtube video that "I sacrificed my whole savings for them. I invested between 30,000 and 35,000 euros on tattoos. I simply just wanted to try something new. We all live just once, and I thought that, at my age, something real has to come".
"When I look in the mirror, I see a beautiful meadow," says Kerstin.
Kerstin regularly shares photos of her tattoos with her 157 thousand fans on her Instagram profile, @Tattoo_Butterfly_Flower. She shares her more racy side with her fans on her Only Fans account.
Her photos have attracted thousands of likes and comments from various supporters and admirers. One admirer wrote: "This is beautiful", others described the tattoo model as gorgeous as some were so speechless they just commented with emojis.
