Is the X Factor winner's new tattoo a secret career move?

Leona Lewis has livened up her girl-next-door image by getting a Victoria Beckham-inspired tattoo.

The X Factor winner has had a self-penned poem about horses inked down the length of her spine, apparently in an attempt to appear more rebellious. 

Leona also has a tattoo in Hebrew on her wrist to celebrate her love for childhood sweetheart Lou Al-Chamaa, who she met when she was 10.

‘Hopefully this will lead to me to doing a special on ITV or something,’ Leona is reported to have said.

This is the first time we’ve heard of a celebrity using tattoos to further their career.

But if you’re keen to enhance your profile with a bit of body art, try a temporary tattoo first.

We’ve also put together a selection of the most rock ‘n’ roll tattoo fashion.

Experiment with a look you can easily change before you get the needle.
