Tattoo Thursday

A 98-year-old grandmother has got her first tattoo in tribute to her grandson.

Winifred Pinner, from Birmingham, set out to raise money for the mental health charity Mind after her 34-year-old grandson Jamie took his own life.

Mrs Pinner, known as Nanny Win, told BBC Radio WM that the idea for the fundraiser came to her a few months after Jamie's death in September.

She said getting her tattoo from her granddaughter Gemma, who is a trained tattoo artist, was "a comfort".

I guess the good news is that she doesn't have to live with it too long.
