Judy Steel celebrated her 70th birthday with a tattoo

Not a military tattoo, you understand, but the sort with ink and needles.

A report on the Daily Mail website this evening tells us:
The wife of former Lib Dem leader Lord Steel has revealed she got a tattoo of a pink jaguar when she turned 70. 
Lady Judy Steel, 72, revealed how she treated herself to the inking two years ago to mark her milestone birthday. 
Not wanting to be convinced out of it, she quietly slipped off to a tattoo shop in Selkirk, in the Scottish Borders, where she showed the artist exactly what she wanted.
The paper says that Lady Steel's grandchildren think she is cool but that her husband's reaction, perhaps characteristically, was less generous.

You can read more about Judy Steel and her late blossoming in my Liberal Democrat News review of her memoirs Tales from the Tap End.
