A tat for Matt? 

On Friday TODAY’s Matt Lauer entertained the possibility of getting a tattoo. And many TODAY viewers think Matt should get inked.

Video: After hearing that experts advise against getting tattoos after the age of 50, TODAY’s Matt Lauer revealed he has considered getting one. Al Roker put it to the people to weigh in on Twitter.

During a discussion about whether men over 50 should get a tattoo, Matt quietly acknowledged “I’m on the fence” about getting one.

That was enough to light up the Orange Room: Tweets with the #MattTattooYes flooded Twitter.


Still, #MattTattooNo tweets did their best to be heard:


The talk started with Al Roker saying he had no desire to get a tattoo. Tamron Hall then chimed in: “You’re supposed to get it in your 20s and regret it in your 50s,” she said.

That’s when Savannah noticed Matt was “awfully quiet here.”

Matt quietly admitted: "I’m on the fence about that. Let’s move on," he said.

Too late! 


Here’s hoping that if Matt does get a tattoo, it will be a bit more discreet than the one he sported two years ago when he appeared on Jimmy Fallon’s former show, “Late Night.”

Should Matt Lauer get a tattoo? If so, hopefully it will be more discreet than the one he sported while appearing two years ago on Jimmy Fallon's "Late Show."
