Leading tattoo artist Nikko Hurtado has confirmed Cheryl’s new chest tattoo is real.
Fans of the Geordie beauty were left wondering if Chezza’s latest inking was the real deal or just a transfer after she unveiled the inking during the Chopard Trophy party in Cannes last week.
But now Nikko has confirmed that he tattooed the ex X Factor judge last month along with boyfriend Liam Payne.
Writing on Instagram alongside a snap of Cheryl, Nikko said: “Always honored to tattoo my friend @cherylofficial did this little Buddhist symbol on her chest about a month ago. @cherylofficial & @fakeliampayne are class acts and always treat me very well. Thank you guys for trusting me tattooing you. honored. Stole this photo from her at Cannes” (sic).
The latest design is of the Buddhist Unalome symbol which means; The spiral stands for the crown at the centre of the scalp, and the straight line pointing upwards, representing the straight path to Enlightenment without any wavering behaviour, that the Arahants have accomplished.
Cheryl now has six tattoos on her body; Mrs C inking on the back of her neck. Rose and barbed wire design on her upper thigh. Tribal symbol on her hand. Tiny love heart on her finger. Huge rose inking on her lower back and bottom. And now the Unalome symbol on her cleavage.
We love the meaning behind Cheryl’s latest tattoo, we hope it means she has now find peace and happiness.
