Exciting stuff!

We’re desperate to know what 23-year-old Tommy is having inked onto his back.

The reality star, who has been in a relationship with co-star Georgia Kousoulou, 24, for over a year, showed-off his many tattoos over the summer whilst on holiday in Marbella with the TOWIE crew.

Tommy isn’t the only Essex lad with an array of tatts.

Pete Wicks is also a fan. In fact, he’s definitely MORE than a fan – he’s covered in body art!

Pete has shared several photos on social media flaunting his tatts and let’s just say, he’s certainly built up a collection of female admirers!

Speaking to Now, Pete revealed that he wants to be covered in tattoos.

‘I dunno why. Everyone says I’m gonna ruin myself, they’re probably right,’ he admitted, adding: ‘I regret loads of them. Whenever you’ve got tattoos you always see tattoos that you want, that are better. So you wish you could take some off and start again. So I’ve got loads that I don’t necessarily regret but I just wish I’d done different things with them. But I’m having some lasered at the minute so I can start again.’

Pete also opened up about his most meaningful tattoo.

‘I’ve got my mum’s name and date of birth, and my nan’s. Mum’s on the inside of my arm, nan’s on the back.’
