The ‘Impossible’ singer has added new body art to his already large tattoo collection.

X Factor winner James Arthur has shown off his latest tattoo while out and about in London.

The 'Impossible' singer's new body art features a king motif as well as his initials and the number 23 on his right hand, running from the end of his sleeve to his knuckles.

He revealed the tattoo while out with The Xtra Factor host Caroline Flack at London’s Groucho Club, who he admitted having a crush on during the filming of the X Factor last year.

"[It's] King Arthur look! Yeah, well it's more like I was a pauper and now I'm fulfilling my purpose so I feel like a king," James told Capital, when asked about the idea behind his new body art.

James is a big tattoo fan, with several ink designs already including the words ‘love’ and ‘hate’ tattooed on his knuckles.

James is currently busy working on his debut album, and tweeted earlier this month: "Work on this album is well and truly underway.. So many songs!!! Gunna be a selection problem! Good problem to have ‪#LOVE."

The X Factor UK star's first single ‘Impossible’ held the number one spot in the Vodafone Big Top 40 chart for two weeks.
