This morning.

The Ink Factory, Wellington Quay, Dublin.

You might regret that when you get, never mind.

Rita Fitzpatrick of Delgany, County Wicklow, celebrated her 85th birthday this week by becoming the first tattoo recipient in the annual Tattoo-Drive for Irish mental-health promoters, JC Foundation.

The grandmother was joined by daughter, Sam Donohoe (above left), and granddaughter Hazel Donohoe (above right) who each had a simple love-heart tattoo applied, the design selected for this year’s fundraiser.

The official Tattoo-Drive takes place on Saturday next, at The Ink Factory on 15 Wellington Quay and at 19 Parliament Street, in Dublin’s Temple Bar.

On the day, a volunteer team of fifteen tattoo artists will tattoo the love-heart design, in return for a €50 donation to the foundation.  It is hoped the campaign will raise €20,000 to fund 365 free therapy sessions for young adults.

    at the risk of sounding like an auld wan myself I always wonder how well those very heavily tatooted looks on bright young things will age

      They don’t age well, the tattoos. So many old anarchists in Berlin with faded green and greeny blue tattoos. The black ink always go green with time, so do the rich blues.

        The more modern inks don’t fade as badly, though they still do, it’s script that really looks muck after a while, especially the teeny tiny writing ones. Hideous.
