British singer Cheryl Cole had an enormous tattoo inked over her backside to cover up a hideous piece of body art, according to an expert. The former Girls Aloud star shocked fans last year (13) when she unveiled her new design, featuring huge red roses and green leaves covering her entire lower back, buttocks, and the top of her thighs. She later told fans the artwork, which took 15 hours to complete, had "a personal meaning behind it" but now an expert tattoo artist has suggested the singer used the inking to cover up a previous design she had fallen out of love with. James Woodford even suggests Cole might have been embarrassed by a previously popular lower back design which has since gained an unfavourable reputation among women. He tells rock magazine Q, "That's a cover-up. Of a 'tramp stamp'? We call them 'arschgeweih' - a**e antlers. There's no other reason to have roses that dark and it's a weird shape. I would wager that this is the start of a full back piece."
