Meet the Grandmother Who Ditched Her Retirement Home to Go Get a Tattoo

Tony Sellers is a truck driver from Northern Island who was more than surprised when he made a stop to visit his 79 year old mother in a care home. When she was nowhere to be found, it turned out Grandma Sellers had skipped out to go on an adventure of her own.
It was even more surprising when it turned out to be a trip to the local tattoo parlour, Tattoo Studios 76, where she decided to treat herself to her first tattoo!
She even gave an absolutely hilarious response when asked what her family may have thought of the whole ordeal, “I don’t f***ing care. When you get to my age, you just have to live life to the full every day.” Further explaining to the Mirror newspaper, “I asked the fella how long it would take and he said it had finished five minutes ago. I never felt a thing. He just laughed at me.”
