The 26-year-old singer added soon after, "Uh-oh girls day turning into girls night. Should I get a tattoo???? Haha. (sic)"

Throughout the procedure, Lavigne kept her fans updated with pictures and dropped hints about the design she was having.

"Omg..k. Here we go... It`s comes in handy all the time, it can hurt you, but at the same time keep you together, safety first! (sic)," she tweeted during the process.

She eventually revealed the design in a picture, adding the caption, "It`s a. Safety pin!!!!! (sic)"

Despite her spur-of-the-moment decision to get the body art, Lavigne had no regrets later.

"What a great day with my girlfriends. Hahah. Just being me... Girl time is always necessary. And I got a tattoo.. (sic)" she wrote on Twitter.
