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."
"Put it this way, every individual has their own way of expressing themselves," he added.
Meanwhile the Nothing Compares 2 U songstress saw the lighter side of the new additions to her face, responding to jokes about her tattoos being linked to hardware giant B&Q.
"Yes.. yes.. the B&Q jokes are funny.. I had actually thought of getting an & sign on my nose (not really)," she said on her website.
Sinead already has a number of tattoos, including a giant depiction of Jesus Christ on her chest.
