One grandmother spent her life savings tattooing her whole body, despite nasty trolls saying she's too old.

Kerstin Tristan, 56, rocks incredible colourful tattoos from head to toe.

And it’s kind of ironic, because before her first inking in 2015, the grandma said she ‘hated tattoos’, according to The Sun.

Kerstin was apparently inspired to start her beautiful collection because she 'couldn't stand' her skin anymore.

And now she’s got a variety of flowers birds, animals, and other details covering her body.

Since her first one, Kerstin has splashed her entire life savings on getting inked, up to €35,000 (£30,000).

The German woman has the likes of geometric patterns on her feet, leopard print on her shoulders, butterflies on her face and florals pretty much everywhere.

Kerstin previously told Hooked on the Look: “When I look at myself in the mirror, I see a beautiful meadow full of flowers that one has to love.”

And although there may be trolls who say she’s too old for the coating of tattoos, she has a huge fan base for her content.

Kerstin has over 191,000 followers on Instagram where she uploads stunning photos and videos of her body.

According to The Sun, the grandmother has previously been in the top two percent of creators on OnlyFans.

Kerstin said: “I simply just wanted to try something new. We all live once and I thought that in my age something real has to come.”

She’s not afraid to show off her body artwork in her underwear and her Instagram reels rake in thousands of views.

And it doesn’t just stop at the tattoos, Kerstin also shared clips of her getting permanent makeup treatments, as well as showing off her ear full of piercings.

Over on TikTok, she has over one million followers - so it’s maybe not too bad she spent all her life savings on the tattoos.

With a huge social media following and her popular OnlyFans, Kerstin is likely to be earning a fair bit back with thanks to her content.

Instagram users love to see her new inkings, like a recent butterfly in the middle of her forehead a fan called ‘gorgeous’.

While another said she was a ‘walking living masterpiece’.

And a third penned: “Such good ink - mesmerised every time you post.”
