Where can I find photos (or descriptions) of old tattoos?

I've been thinking about getting a tattoo for a while. Every time I mention it to a friend of mine, he tells me a story about one of his mom's friends who had a small bird done on her abdomen. Apparently it stretched out and now it looks like a big bruise.
I'd like to hear more stories about how tattoos age, and possibly see some photos. I've tried the google, but I've had trouble finding what I'm looking for: photos of people whose tattoos are 20, 40, 60 years old.
I know there's really no way of knowing what my skin's going to do as I age, but I'd like to go into this at least understanding what the possibilities are.
Personal tattoo stories and photos are great! So are links to others'.
