Yup, this 104-year-old British man celebrate his birthday on last April 6th 2016 in a unique way : got his first tattoo.

His 55 year old daughter Jayne Goodwin had said in a statement that, his father initially wanted the tattoo in his bum, but then, he wasn’t like to be in an uncomfortable position to show off it to others. Thus he adds the tattoo to his hand. Jack Reynolds had “Jacko 6.4.1912” tattooed on his upper arm at local parlour Pete Who’s. Asked if he was nervous about getting the tattoo done, he replied: “I’m a big strong lad – and I’ve have plenty of needles in me in my time, in various places.”
Two years ago, Jack Reynolds became the oldest person to complete the Ice Bucket Challenge. The former railway line foreman has already raised £2,146 for independent charity Ashgate Hospice which cares for terminally ill adults across North Derbyshire by attempting the record.
