Ian Dempsey has agreed to get his first ever tattoo – after being dared by thousands of listeners.

The Today FM star is taking part in the station’s new charity fundraiser Dare To Care.

The 55-year-old put it to his listeners about what his dare should be but one kept coming back – “Get a tattoo.”

The radio station’s new fundraiser is following on from it’s hugely successful Shave or Dye campaign which raised over €7million for the Irish Cancer Society.

“The nation’s favourite breakfast show presenter, Ian Dempsey, this morning announced live on air that he is willing to get his first tattoo after being dared by thousands of listeners,” a Today FM press release stated.

“But there’s one condition – the needle will not touch his skin until he raises €25,000 for the Irish Cancer Society.”
