Title is pretty much all.

Some context:

I took an edible and had a thought last night.

What if I tattooed a ruler on my finger?

I never would actually do this, but my interest still piqued. Do hands keep growing? Do they stop growing? Do they shrink? How long would a finger ruler be viable until it needs decommissioned?

    If the old people in my family are representative of the general population, your knuckles will keep growing and your fingers will start to bend at odd angles, and will seem to grow longer as your hand meat recedes. The skin will get looser and the ruler lines won’t be as accurate. Also, finger skin doesn’t hold tattoo ink that well, so it will probably be a messy blur by the time you have significant physiological changes to your hands.
