Cheryl Cole's black and red rose tattoo on her back actually covers her butt cheeks, too.

Tattooist Nikko Hurtado has revealed an Instagram snap of his artwork and Cheryl has confirmed that the pert buttocks in a pink thong belong to her.

'I've had it for maybe 7-8 months, it was a long process but only just detailed it,' the 30-year-old told Twitter followers last night.

'I have personal meaning behind it but English roses are my favourite flowers.'

The bold tattoo design is quite a statement but Now's columnist Michelle Keegan loves it,

'No gonna lie I actually heart �� @CherylCole new tattoo! #dontcare X,' she Tweets.

Cheryl first unveiled her elaborate skin ink on the first night of Girls Aloud's reunion tour Ten in Newcastle in February.

‘It was really painful but I think I'm done with tattoos now,' she declared.

'It wasn't for any particular reason, I just liked the design. It took 15 hours in total.'
