Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned. Or in this case, tattoos have no restrictions on a Sinead O'Connor scorned.

The singer was pictured with her new face tattoo while performing at the Big Top stage at Bestival, held at Robin Hill Country Park on the Isle of Wight last weekend

O'Connor reportedly decided to get the ink on her cheek after falling out with a man.

She explained that she chose such a dominant spot on her face so that she would never forget their clash.

The red ink tattoos with the initials B and Q could be mistaken for a skin discolouration, rather than an intentional display of artwork.

Her father Sean O'Connor came to his daughter's defence, saying: "Everyone has their own way of expressing themselves."

Cheryl Cole's tattoo artist posted this eye-popping shot on his Instagram of the singers epic tattoo. Fans are likely to be shocked at the extent of the tattoo which covers her lower back and her entire backside.
With just a blingtastic Chanel medallion round her neck and skimpy white two-piece on in Marbella, Tulisa Contostavlos gave the boys a glimpse of her new bikini-line tat. The 'Lucky You' message, which rather fetchingly sits next to a four-leaf clover, shows the high opinion the 'British Swag' singer has of herself.

With last week's Met Ball punk theme still firmly on Cara Delevingne's mind, the 20-year-old has decided to permanently mark her fiery side, bizarrely on the base of her finger. Following wifey, Rita Ora's footsteps, Cara sought out tattoo-artist Bang Bang to sketch the lion. 'RAWWWW' was the apt Instagram caption Cara gave the maned beast that now sits on her index finger.

Continuing his ink marathon - the One Direction star now has an estimated 30 designs - Harry Styles has chosen a butterfly as his next torso-based tattoo. A hint to all those girls who get butterflies in their tummies over the pop prince? How clever.
Lindsay Lohan showed up at the LA Superior Court with an inflated trout pout and some new inked designs on display. A red triangle sits on her inner right arm with the message 'what dreams may come' underneath, while her right hand now has the message 'I leave before being left. I decide' emblazoned across it. Cryptic, you could say.
After a regrettable - and subsequently removed tattoo - of Marilyn Monroe, 'Transformers' star Megan Fox went for the life-affirming motto: "We will all laugh at gilded butterflies" emblazoned across her back. Confused? So are we.

So good we're featuring her twice - Cheryl Cole' s ambiguous butterfly back piece envelops her lower back much further than seen here. The singer also sports a few other choice emblems on her body, notably one of cartoon character Tweety Pie somewhere out of sight. Cheryl 'Tweedy' Pie, anyone?
