When asked what her family would think, Sellers replied “I don’t f***ing care. When you get to my age, you just have to live life to the full every day.” She went on to tell the Mirror, “I asked the fella how long it would take and he said it had finished five minutes ago. I never felt a thing. He just laughed at me.”

Sellers is a former civil servant in Northern Ireland. Her son Tony, 57, is a truck driver and has 8 tattoos; his daughter, Samantha, 22, is also tattooed.

Turns out, the grandmother of 11 “escaped” her elderly care home to get her first tattoo!

“I asked the fella how long it would take and he said it had finished five minutes ago. I never felt a thing,” the grandma said later

“When you get to my age, you just have to live life to the full every day”

Son Tony recounts, “I just couldn’t believe it. I went in all I saw was three big lads in their 20s, covered in tattoos, and there in the middle was mum getting one herself”

“She’s normally very prim and proper but she does sometimes swear like a sailor behind closed doors”

When asked what her family would think of her tattoo, Sadie replied, “I don’t f***ing care”
