Cheryl Cole has admitted sheâs âdone with tattoosâ after her latest addition received mixed reviews.
The former X Factor judge has given tramp stamps up for good after unveiling the red rose design on her back during the opening night of Girls Aloudâs Ten Tour Thursday night.
Speaking after the show at Newcastleâs Metro Radio Arena, she said: âIt was really painful but I think Iâm done with tattoos now. It wasnât for any particular reason, I just liked the design.
âIt took 15 hours in total.â
Although fans have only just got a whiff of her new inking, the 29-year-old Geordie had it done in September.
âI actually got it five months ago â but itâs somewhere on my body you wouldnât expect people to see it very often,â she explained.
âIt was done by this amazing artist called Nikko Hurtado who basically travels round the world going to conventions.âChezzaâs latest design took an eye-watering 15 hours inÂ totalÂ (Picture: Xposurephotos.com)
ButÂ despiteÂ her vow to steer clear of tattoo parlours in future, the Under The Sun singer admitted she would make an exception if her bandmates were up for one.
She told The Sun: âI was up for getting a small something done for the reunion but the girls arenât quite so keen.â
Nicola Roberts chipped in: âIâm too pale for a tattoo â it would stand out like a sore thumb. I might just get a dot like Phoebe from Friends.âCheryl wanted all of her Girls Aloud bandmates to get aÂ tattooÂ to mark their reunion (Picture: Xposurephotos.com)
Cheryl has said previously she wouldnât mind getting her entire back done.
âThey are addictive, they really are. If it was up to me â and I could be brave for one day â I would have my whole back done,â she told InStyle in 2011.
My friends say, âCheryl, please, you might regret itâ â but to me, itâs art.â
