Cheryl Cole walked down the red carpet at the National Television Awards on Wednesday, with a low cut dress that showed off her new tattoo.
The new tat, which apparently took an 11 hour sitting, was the talk of the show after that star turned on the charm on the red carpet, smiling for photographers.
The tattoo is thought to have been an extension of an existing butterfly on Cheryl’s back, first seen when the star was rehearsing for her performance during the X Factor.
According to the Daily Mirror, Cheryl told friends: ‘The tattoo is deeply personal. It took weeks to come up with the final design,’ before adding, ‘It has a strong symbolic meaning and signifies a fresh start and my new independence.’
Cheryl is reported to have told friends the sitting was pretty painful, but well worth doing in the end. It’s the latest in her repertoire of 7 or 8 tattoos, including one barbed wire band around her thigh.
