It definitely depends where you put it!

I have a friend with a tattoo from just under her armpit, down her side, almost to mid-thigh (it’s pretty awesome). But she’s short and can’t gain or lose ore than 5-10lbs without starting to see some distortion!

My aunt, on the other hand, has a tatoo on her shoulder. After gaining 40-70lbs with EACH of her three kids, it hasn’t distorted at all.

I have seen some women who lost a large amount of weight and had their tattoo shrink up. one example is a fitness motivator I follow on Instagram. Her tattoo looks noticeably smaller to me at least! But I think it still looks good. 

If you are putting the tattoo on an area that won’t stretch much, I think you’ll be okay!
