Dame Helen Mirren considering 'whole sleeve' tattoo
The 70-year-old actress already has a tattoo of interlocking Vs on her left hand, which was inked on a Native American reservation in the 1970s.
During an interview to promote her latest movie Eye In The Sky, Dame Helen told the Radio Times she does not regret her body ink.
“I want to get another one, actually. I’d like a whole sleeve. As you get older, I think it’s a better and better idea,” she said.
She went on to describe “some sort of curving pattern running up my arm,” and added: “Maybe a snake – I quite like snakes.”
Renowned for her unconventional streak, she famously showed off her twerking skills after winning Harvard’s Hasty Pudding Woman Of The Year award in 2014.
The year before, she dyed her hair pink.
Dame Helen is not a fan of being labelled “sexy”, despite being celebrated as a positive role model for older women.
“I’ve always been tired of being called ‘sexy’. It’s annoying and irritating – I just have to put up with it,” she told the magazine.
