After mulling over the idea of getting a tattoo for years, Dench revealed to Surrey Life magazine that she finally bit the bullet and got "carpe diem" (seize the day) tattooed on the inside of her right wrist. It was a birthday gift from her tattooed daughter, Finty Williams.

The younger generations may not know the name Judi Dench, but recognise her for playing the role of M in the James Bond movie franchise for the past two decades.

An established stage actor, Dench has amased a huge collection of awards for her performances. Her success has also translated to her television and film roles. Dench was an Oscar winner for her role as Queen Elizabeth I in the 1998 film Shakespeare in Love. 

Away from acting, Dench received an OBE (Officer of the Order of the British Empire) in 1970, and then became a Dame in 1988.

These days it is not uncommon for older people, women especially, to get tattooed. A tattoo is still seen as something crazy or a little extreme for some people, and so it becomes something they want to experience at least once in their lives. 

Dench just proves that it doesn't matter if you're a Dame, an Oscar winner, or a mere commoner; no one is too posh to get a tattoo.
