Cole shows off new back tattoo
London: Cheryl Cole has taken her love for body art to painful new heights with a intricate new tattoo which covers her entire lower back.
The 27-year-old`s new addition accompanies the large butterfly tattoo situated higher up on her back. The `Promise This` hit maker’s latest design is similar to the inking she has on her thigh, which she showed off in October as she unveiled her waxwork at Madame Tussauds in London.
A spokesperson for the star confirmed that she has acquired the new ink, but refused to be drawn on further details about what the etching is and when Cole had it done, reported Daily Mail online.
She has five other known tattoos, her much-copied hand design, barbed wire around her right upper thigh, a large butterfly design on her back, as well as one on the left side of her bottom and `Mrs C` on her neck.
She got her first tattoo, the barbed wire, when she started dating her now ex-husband, footballer Ashley Cole, closely followed by the Polynesian tribal sign that adorns the side of her right hand.
When the star married the Chelsea footballer and changed her name from Tweedie to Cole, she quickly took the opportunity to brand the new surname on the back of her neck.
She was then known as Mrs C, according to the tattoo, and has decided to keep it despite breaking up with Ashley. Then came her first lower back design, which again resembled some kind of tribal marking, but the singer has always been tight lipped on the meanings behind the tattoos.
While performing on stage this year, the singer then shocked fans with another tattoo right on one of her bottom cheeks, which she had previously kept hidden.
And just last month, the vine-inspired design appeared on her upper thigh at her wax museum unveiling.
