Spice Girl Mel C can’t bear thought of her daughter Scarlet (3) getting tattoos like her
SPICE Girl Melanie Chisholm regrets being inked, she has revealed. During her Sporty Spice days, the singer got 11 tattoos on her arms, back and leg, including a lotus flower on her lower back, a Celtic cross on her left arm, a phoenix across her shoulders and a dragon on her right leg, as well as Tibetan symbols for love and happiness on her wrists.
But now the 37-year-old says she wishes she never gotten them and that she hates the thought of her daughter Scarlet, 3, ever getting one.
Mel got the opportunity to see what she would look like in a photo shoot for ‘Good Housekeeping’ magazine, where her tattoos were covered up with body makeup and was pleased with the results.
“I’d definitely discourage Scarlet from having tattoos,” she told the magazine. “I’m looking into getting some of them removed. I think it was a great idea to get rid of them for the magazine photos – I wish you could do it permanently.”
It’s not the first time she has expressed regret about her tattoos. She has previously said:
"I do regret a bit having them done. Especially when I'm on the beach. Or when I'm hoping to be incognito and I can't take my coat off in the sweltering heat because everyone will know it's me when they spot them."
Earlier this week, the Spice Girl was reunited with her former bandmates as details of the Spice Girl musical, ‘Viva Forever’.
