    Tattoos and Bodybuilding - Will it stretch?

    Hey I was wondering if I could get some answers on this. I googled it and the answers seemed kind of inconclusive. I'm planning on a getting a tattoo that will cover my left pec, and most of my left arm from the elbow up. I'm also planning on still bulking up quite a bit (30-40 more lbs of muscle). Will the tattoo stretch? I plan on putting on these pounds gradually over the course of the next 3 to 4 years. Has anyone had experience with getting a tattoo and then putting on muscle mass??

    It will pretty much react like an image on a balloon. It may distort some, especially if you develop stretch marks in certain areas. But you should be good. The chest is probably the most likely area for distortion to occur though. Your best bet is to talk to your tattoo artist.

    Honestly man, I got a tattoo up my inner bicep/tricep when I was 150lbs and 14" biceps. Im now 205 with nearly 18 inch biceps and it is not distorted at all. It stretched in proportion, even though I got huge stretch marks in my armpits

    Sweet. I didn't think they'd stretch much anyway, but after googling it, I was a little skeptical.

    And yea, I'm 5'6'' and was 150, even up to 162 and going up, but then suffered from a shoulder injury and I've been out of the gym for about a year and a half. I'm down to 130 now
