Earlier this year she had surprised many of her fans when she revealed part of the giant rose tattoo on stage during the Girls Aloud tour.
Today her Californian tattoo artist Nikko Hurtado showed off his handiwork, and Cheryl Cole’s bottom, with an online photo of the completed artwork.
Hurtado is known for his very detailed ink work and is especially well-known for his portraiture pieces. He is highly skilled and our Geordie lass must have known that she would be in good hands when she picked Hurtado for the very involved rose tattoo.
Although he did not name whose rear he had inked when he posted the photo it was clear to anyone who had seen the earlier shots of Cheryl’s bum during the UK Girls Aloud tour that it was hers. She later went online to confirm that it was her rose tattooed behind that was on show.
She revealed that she has had the completed tattoo for some 6 or 7 months with the work taking over 15 hours and that one of the sittings actually lasted over 7 hours. From his side of the tattoo couch Furtado said that Cheryl was as “tough as nails’ and that the work had involved some intense tattooing sessions.
It is not the first time that she has had some inking on her rear as this giant rose tattoo actually covers up a different tattoo of a butterfly that itself took some 11 hours of work to finish.
Cheryl later talked about the new rose tattoo saying that she was not thinking of having any more work done at the moment. She also said that the design had personal meaning for her and that English roses are her favourite flowers.
