Actress Goldie Hawn and her family celebrated her 60th birthday by getting tattoos to commemorate the occasion.

The PRIVATE BENJAMIN star and her relatives were vacationing in Tahiti when they decided to get tattoos from a local artist.

She explains, "It wasn't a plan, we were all together on my birthday, we were in Tahiti and my older son said, 'You know what would be really cool? Why don't we all get a tattoo for Mom's birthday?'

"And of course we are a totally game family, so we tried to figure out what we were going to do.

"We ended up going to the tattoo artist and I ended up having a heart drawn on by my daughter-in-law-to-be (on her foot) and I put an initial 'G' on (partner) KURT (RUSSELL's) ankle.

"Then my two sons had the Tahitian symbol for brother (tattooed) on."
