Today FM’s Ian Dempsey (55) is set to get his first tattoo after being dared by thousands of listeners.

But there’s one condition – he needs to raise €25,000 for the Irish Cancer Society before he can get the tattoo.

Ian’s ink dare is part of Today FM's Dare to Care, the station's new charity fundraiser.

Ian asked his listeners to suggest a fundraiser for the dare.

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.

In the coming weeks, other Today FM presenters including Anton Savage, Dermot and Dave, Matt Cooper and Louise Duffy will also be forced into doing a dare for charity.

Today FM has also invited all brides and bridesmaids to take part in Wedding Dress Wednesday on September 21 and wear their wedding or bridesmaid dress into work.

Other listener dares to date include sky diving, adventure racing, mountain climbing and chest waxing! Today FM has created an ‘idea generator’ on for those looking for daring inspiration.
