Soo just a quick little question. Would about 55 pounds of weight loss effect the look of your tattoos? Looking to really loose some inches and some weight and I just don’t want my tattoos to suffer since they mean a lot to me and who I am as a person. Two of my tattoos are on my upper left arm. My arms I’m not to terribly worried about even though I’d really like to tone them up a bit. Then I have one tattoo on each of my calves. My calves aren’t exactly little and that is one place I’d really like to tone up and everything. Would weight loss effect that? Just a worry of mine when I get started with this. Any advice is appreciated!

They shouldn’t be affected at all.. I am down 75 lbs after I had stopped playing football and joined the Air Force, and all of my tattoos are still solid and unchanged.

That’s definitely a comforting thought

Spot reduction is a myth. In other words, you don’t choose where the weight comes off. If you only did calf raises for the next month and managed to burn 3,500 calories, you would lose 1 lb off your body, not off your calves. The muscle builds under the fat. FWIW, the arms will be one of the last places that you lose the fat.

And yes the reduction in weight will affect the look of your tattoos, but if the weight reduction is gradual, then I wouldn’t worry about it too much.

Well I know spot reduction is a myth but i’m talking about overall weight loss. Seems like there are mixed responses.
