Ian Dempsey this morning announced live on air that he is willing to get his first tattoo after being dared by thousands of listeners.
But there’s one condition – the needle will not touch his skin until he raises €25,000 for the Irish Cancer Society.
Ian’s ink promise is all part of Today FM’s Dare to Care, the station’s new charity fundraiser. He put it to the listeners of his breakfast show as to what his dare might be and they responded with all kinds of suggestions. But there was one dare that listeners kept coming back to – “get a tattoo Ian”!
The breakfast presenter has no tattoos and at 55 years old, getting inked was not something he had considered. Ian has yet to confirm what tattoo he’ll go for and more importantly where on his body he’ll have it.
Today FM presenters and listeners have committed to taking on all sorts of dares to raise much needed funds for cancer services and will continue to do so throughout September and October.
