56-Year-Old Woman Proves You Can Be Sexy No Matter How Old You Are (NSFW)

Meet Texas native Julie H., also known as The Burning Lotus – a 56-year-old model who has been taking provocative pictures, celebrating the sex appeal, of herself for a while now.

“I posted my images initially as a dare to myself ― again, an affirmation of existence,” Julie said. But after posting a side picture of herself holding up her black bra and showing the full body tattoo, Julie became pretty popular online. “The ‘senior ink’ image caught fire in a random way that still confuses and overwhelms me,” she said. Ever since Julie’s Tumblr audience has been growing and she now has over 92k followers that admire her piercings and tattoos and the way she portrays herself. She was even voted #3 in Bored Panda’s list of tattooed elderly people. An older woman can be sexy no matter what her age is, and Julie definitely proves so! You can see Julie’s photos below.

“I bring them hope about the aging process and/or they are no longer frightened about growing old. They admire my courage”

“I simply see the human body as an amazing machine with many moving parts. And parts is parts”

“Society assigns value and stigma on what is acceptable and what isn’t”

“Confidence is primal and raw. Let that shit OUT. Life is too short to play it halfway”

“Work on being a better person and love fully. And don’t be afraid to be perfectly imperfect”

Kudos to her for feeling confident in her skin. However, sexy comes in many different ways, and you don't necessarily have to be naked, and posing "provocatively" to be sexy. Sometimes sexy can be a look in the eye, eloquent speech, sex appeal (not to be misconstrued with wardrobe), etc. Sexy comes in many different forms and many different ages.

??? I don't think it says anywhere here that she's old... it only says that she's 56.

I'm an RN who has had hundreds of older both men & women with extensive tattooing. The looser your skin gets with the aging process, the less these tattoos looks like works of art . Folds of skin or adipose tissue breaks up the designs , &, if a tattoo was poorly done to begin with, the designs become blurred & muddy. Julie H. has good quality tattoos. I'm sure I will be voted down. That's O.K.

You're absolutely correct Nancy. She face is a great indicator at to what her tattoos will resemble as she ages.
