The X Factor judge shows off her new artwork


Cheryl Cole has revealed a new tattoo on the base of her back.

The Geordie lass wore a skimpy jacket as she arrived at The X Factor studios in London to show off her new tatt, which is her biggest yet.

It sits just below an existing design of a butterfly.

‘This one is extremely personal to her, that’s why she got it done,’ says Cheryl’s pal.

The ‘ribbon’ tattoo looks half finished and is the upper part of a new design that the Girls Aloud star had inked on her left thigh in LA this summer.

Cheryl showed off the new flower leaf tattoo to mark her divorce from Chelsea footballer ex-husband Ashley Cole as she unveiled her wax figure at Madame Tussauds in October

‘I designed it myself with the help of an artist and had it done to symbolise a new beginning,’ Cheryl, 27, told the Daily Mirror.

‘I am ready to move on, make a fresh start. It starts on my thigh and it goes all the way up.’

Cheryl has 5 other tattoos – the iconic one on her hand, a barbed wired pattern around her right thigh, a butterfly on her lower back, an etching on her left buttock and the words Mrs C on her neck.
