Dame Judi Dench decided to give herself a badass birthday present… of her first-ever tattoo!

The Mirror Online says that the actor’s new ink was a gift from her daughter Tara “Finty” Williams, and is situated over her right wrist and bears the phrase “carpe diem” in bold font. “That’s my motto: Seize the day,” she told Mirror Online. “Finty gave it to me for my 81st birthday — she’s wonderful with surprises.”


While she likes her body art, she says that at the time she got the tattoo, her costars in A Winter’s Tale would tease her that it actually said: “fish of the day.”

And honestly, this shouldn’t be so surprising, as yast year Dench shared that she was toying with the idea of getting a tattoo, but was nervous about it. “I am tempted to have a tattoo to mark my birthday. Finty’s very keen on me having one,” reports the Mirror Online. Well HERE YOU GO GIRL!!!

I love it and I love JD!
