Cheryl Cole Tattoos: A Guide To Her Famous Inkings
It's no secret that the pop world loves to get on the tattoo table and cover their bodies in ink. Who can forget when Cheryl uncovered that HUGE rose design on her bum? Let's take a look at all those designs and try to find the meaning behind them.
1. Cheryl Cole's Thigh Tattoo
The barbed wire design features a treble clef and a rose that goes around her right thigh. It was etched onto her skin shortly after finding fame with Girls Aloud on the original music reality show Popstars The Rivals. Remember that? Bonus point if you can name the male group on the show.
2. Cheryl Cole's Butterfly And Barbed Wire Tattoo
This butterfly design was also among her very early designs and it's plain to see she was going for a bit of a theme. However, this is one that wasn't to last...
3. Cheryl Cole's 'Mrs. C' Tattoo
This might be one of the designs her regrets the most following her marriage breakdown with footballer Ashley Cole. The singer wanted to cement her love for her then husband with this public declaration. Luckily she has all those lucious locks to cover it up.
4. Cheryl Cole's Tribal Hand Tattoo
The inking is in a traditional Polynesian Maori style. Although there is no great meaning behind the actual design, it has been described as marking a new beginning by the singer. It also stands for 'C' - could it be for her name? Or maybe a real affinity with Coco Pops?
5. Cheryl Cole's Bum Tattoo
Well this one surely gives a new meaning to the phrase 'rosy cheeked'. The tattoo actually covered up a Tweety Pie character on her bum and also the barbed-wire butterfly. It took a total of 14 hours to complete and after giving fans a peek of the design on Girls Aoud's farewell tour, the full inking was showcased on her Instagram account. The personal meaning has been kept under wraps but she has confessed that English roses are her favourite flowers.
