It’s a big day for the Kardashian and Jenner family. Not only did their 2011 Christmas card hit the web earlier today, but later this evening, Kendall Jenner‘s sweet 16 party will be what everyone’s watching during its E! special.

In advance of the show, Kendall hit up Access Hollywood to chat with Billy Bush and Kit Hoover, and while her big bash was the initial topic of conversation, Kendall blushed a bit when Billy started peppering her with questions about dating and some new ink.

Kendall admitted that “My dad always told me I could start dating when I was 16, so I guess it’s time.” Still, she says that aside from a fourth grade relationship that was just as awkward for her as it was for everyone else who has had an elementary school romance, she hasn’t had a serious boyfriend.

Also discussed was a neck tattoo that Kendall had wanted, which dad Bruce Jenner was very vocally against. In the long run though, Kendall got her ink — which Bush took a peek at.

“It was kind of a hard thing to go through because he would say no, and then he would say OK and then he would say no,” Kendall said about the ongoing debate to get her tattoo.

As for her party, Kendall says “at first I just wanted a simple little get-together … and then my mom and my sisters were like ‘It’s your sweet 16, you have to do something big!’ It wound up being a lot of fun.”

You can see it all Monday night on E! at 9p EST.
