103-Year-Old Woman Gets Frog Tattoo To Tick It Off Her Bucket List

103-Year-Old Woman Gets Frog Tattoo To Tick It Off Her Bucket List

Dorothy Pollack is here to show you that age is just a number and you're never too old to do something you've always wanted to do.

The centenarian has celebrated her 103rd birthday by ticking off an item from her bucket list: a tattoo.

After spending months in isolation at her care home due to the coronavirus, her granddaughter Teresa Zavitz-Jones says Dorothy's mental health started to dip.

Speaking to CNN, Teresa said: "Covid-19 had her in prison for months. The nurse in the home said she was horribly depressed and we needed to get her out.

"We couldn't see her so we had no idea how she really was. She's extremely hard of hearing so phone calls were not helpful."

Teresa eventually was able to get her grandma discharged from the nursing home in Muskegon, Michigan, and they set about finding some fun things to do.

You might think Dorothy would want to do some knitting or have a stroll around the park, but the 103-year-old shocked everyone in the family when she revealed what she wanted to achieve. Out of nowhere, she decided to get a tattoo.

Dorothy told CNN: "It was pretty exciting because years ago my grandson wanted me to get one and I wouldn't do it. All of a sudden, I decided I would like to have one. And if I could, a frog. Because I like frogs."

Why the hell not ay, Dorothy?

They took her to A.W.O.L. Custom Tattooing in Muskegon to get an image of a frog and, according to her tattoo artist Ray Reasoner Jr., she 'took it like a champ' and 'didn't even wince once'.

After the tattoo, Dorothy got to tick off another item: riding on the back of a motorbike.

If you've ever thought that you're too old to do something, take a leaf out of Dorothy's book and enjoy life to the fullest.
