POP star Britney Spears will sport a new tattoo that she got on a recent visit to Bray, Co Wicklow, when she performs at Dublin's RDS tomorrow. The 22-year-old star and her 26-year-old boyfriend dancer Kevin Federline opted for complementary pairs of dice on their wrists as a permanent reminder of their trip to Ireland.
Britney chose a small set of pink dice on her left wrist and her boyfriend chose slightly larger blue dice on his right wrist.
Maurice Gallagher who runs the Atattooed tattoo parlour in Bray told how he had received a call from a representative of the star and the couple arrived at about 8pm on Monday night.
"She was great fun," he said adding that while a tattoo would normally take about 40 minutes, the couple stayed for about two hours.
"I received a call at around 5pm and was asked to open the salon especially for her that night," he said.
Britney, who is due to fly to Portugal today for a festival in Lisbon, will then fly back to Dublin for tomorrow's RDS show.
The singer has so far played two sell-out indoor shows at Dublin's Point as part of her Onyx Hotel Tour. Promoter Peter Aiken said some tickets were still available for tomorrow's show.
Earlier this week, she rehearsed her dance routines at a Dublin dance studio in the Factory in Barrow Street where actor Colin Farrell's older brother Eamon runs a performing arts school.
Princess of pop, Britney was romantically linked to wildboy actor Farrell last year.
