    David Dimbleby gets Scorpion tattoo at 75

    David Dimbleby, who turned 75 last month, is to be shown in his latest television series getting a scorpion tattoo on his shoulder, fulfilling what he has described as a long held secret ambition.

    The Question Time presenter, who has anchored the BBC's coverage of every general election since 1979, was filmed at an east London tattoo parlour – although he admitted he initially balked at the idea, believing he was too old.



    He said he chose a scorpion because of his star sign, adding that he was rather fond of it, "sitting on my shoulder ready to attack my enemies".
    Dimbleby told the latest edition of Radio Times: "You are only old once. I have always wanted a tattoo. I thought I might as well have it done now. It's a dream come true for me."



    BBC1 viewers will see Dimbleby getting inked in the first episode of his new documentary series about the UK's maritime history, Britain and the Sea, on Sunday.

    David Dimbleby's tattoo symbolises HIV among gay men

    A scorpion is one of several images gay men sometimes use to warn others they are HIV positive

    By Rosa Silverman1:44PM GMT 12 Nov 2013

    The scorpion tattoo on the shoulder of the broadcaster David Dimbleby shoulder is sometimes used as a warning sign in the gay community to signal someone has HIV.

    The Question Time presenter, 75, decided on the image because Scorpio is his star sign and joked that the little scorpion was “ready to attack my enemies”.

    But, perhaps unbeknown to him, it is also one of several hazard signs used by gay men to tell others they are HIV positive.

    The stinging tail of the scorpion is said to represent the virus.

    Other HIV warning tattoos include biohazard symbols, radiation symbols and red AIDs ribbons.

    Some HIV sufferers get a tattoo as soon as they have been diagnosed while others may wait a while.

    David Dempsey, clinical director at the Alexian Brothers Bonaventure House in Chicago, told CNN: "It's to let other men know that they're HIV-positive so that they don't have to come out and say it."

    I am a scorpio so if I ever got a tattoo I would probably have been planning to get a scorpion.

    These gays are foked up. They hijack the word gay and now they hijack my birth sign for their infection symbol.

    Just noticed that Dimbleby's scorpion only has 6 legs but scorpions are arachnids so his one is a couple of legs short.

    I hope David Attenborough calls him out in a tweet for being a muppet!

    This is news in the UK?

    Heck we have mass anti-government demonstrations in the streets, thus proving that Thailand is a far more interesting place.

    I think this is positive for you Only gay people would know this and would stay away!

    So if you are "normal" the fact you have you star sign as a tat, will be fine!
