Leona Lewis gets new tattoo

New York: Leona Lewis has added a second tattoo dedicated to her favourite animal, horses, to her collection of body art.

The `Bleeding Love` singer has had a miniature horseshoe inked onto her left wrist to go along with the love poem to ponies that`s inscribed down her spine, reported Daily Mail online.

But the 24-year-old doesn`t always have an easy time with the four-hoofed kind.

She was forced to delay the recording of her second album after she was head butted by a horse in April last year.

And she ended up on crutches this January after her horse Goose threw her off.

The 2006 X Factor winner only started riding after having found fame as she did not have the money to follow the expensive hobby before.

Lewis is an avowed vegetarian who had spent a reported USD 175,000 on an environment friendly wardrobe for her international tour.
