Judi Dench Gets Her First Tattoo at Age 81: 'Carpe Diem!'

Judi Dench may be 81, but that doesn’t mean it’s too late to start a tattoo collection!

The legendary Oscar-winning actress got her first tattoo, the words “carpe diem” on her wrist, as a gift from her daughter Finty.

“That’s my motto: Seize the day. Finty gave it to me for my 81st birthday – she’s wonderful with surprises,” Judi told the Mirror Online. “Mind you the company of A Winter’s Tale, which I was doing at the time, used to say that it said fish of the day.”

“I am tempted to have a tattoo to mark my birthday. Finty’s very keen on me having one,” Judi added. “There’s an Indian symbol that I like which supposedly represents life and love and everything. One of the cameramen who worked on The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel told me what it meant, but I’m a bit nervous in case I’m being set up… It might be unbelievably rude!
