An informal poll of 2,000 Brits( most of whom we suspect are just out of nappies) says that by the time a woman is 46, she should shear her long locks and by the ripe old age of 47, she should hang up her skinny jeans. While the Retire Savvy poll is about as unscientific as it gets, it purports to tell older women at what age they should stop doing various things associated with youth. Personally, we think it’s more a measure of how high our blood pressure can go when we read foolish things. To wit 😛 TAGEND
1. Tattoos are a no-no after persons under the age of 38.
Helen Mirren, 70, plainly didn’t get the word .~ ATAGEND While the Grand Dame once called the small tattoo of interlocking Vs on her left hand a “drunken act of youthful rebellion, ” she told The Daily Mail that she’s had a change of heart and now would like a “whole sleeve” tattoo of serpents running up her limb.
As we wrote here, Dame Mirren has never been one to follow the crowd. She has dyed her hair pink, shopped at “stripper shops” for sexy shoes, and royally smacked down people who drink and drive.And clearly she is the coolest septuagenarian around by getting some major ink.
