  • 103-year-old Dorothy Pollack has spent months in isolation because of Covid-19.
  • When she was finally discharged from her care home, she told her granddaughter she wanted to get a tattoo – something that has always been on her bucket list.
  • They took her to a local tattoo shop and she happily got inked for the first time in her life.

We’ve often been told that age is, well, “just a number” but it’s always a delight whenever we see people embodying exactly that. Case in point, an old woman recently made headlines after showing everyone that it’s never too late to go and reach your goals

Already 103 years old, Dorothy Pollack didn’t let her age get in the way as she decided to go tick off an item on her personal bucket list: she has always wanted to get a tattoo!

Apparently, Dorothy has spent months in isolation at a Muskegon care home in Michigan because of the pandemic. According to Teresa Zavitz-Jones, Dorothy’s mental health started to take a hit because of loneliness.

As Teresa told CNN:

“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.”

They couldn’t visit her and contacting her via phone was not even an option since Dorothy has hearing difficulties.

Eventually, she was able to have her grandmother discharged and when they asked her what she wanted to do, she told them she wants a tattoo.

They then drove her to a A.W.O.L Custom Tattoing to make her wish come true.

Tattoo artist Ray Reasoner Jr later described Dorothy as a real “champ,” adding she “didn’t even wince once.”

“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,” said Dorothy.

As if that wasn’t enough, Dorothy also checked off another bucket list item as she rode on the back of a motorcycle – another thing she has never done before.

We just couldn’t help but be happy for this awesome woman. Dorothy is definitely the inspiration we need to just take the leap and chase our desires!
