Dame Judi Dench is embracing change, and how. The amazing actress has gotten a tattoo of “carpe diem” on her wrist, a gift from her daughter Finty. She confessed about her new tattoo in an interview with Surrey Life and said, “That’s my motto: Seize the day. Finty gave it to me for my 81st birthday – she’s wonderful with surprises. 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.”

Last year, talking of her hopes to be inked, she said “I am tempted to have a tattoo to mark my birthday. Finty’s very keen on me having one. 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!”
Judi has famously showed off a fake tattoo tribute to movie mogul Harvey Weinstein on her bum after he cast her as Queen Victoria in Mrs Brown. She said: “He still thinks it’s tattooed. My make-up lady painted it on. He didn’t believe me so I showed him.”
