Sharing the picture via her tattooist Nikko Hurtado's Instagram account, Cheryl then took to her own Twitter to confirm that the rose-covered bum was indeed her own, with a twist on Kanye West's American Boy lyrics.

Initially planning to cover up a smaller butterfly tattoo on her lower back, Cheryl's roses have reportedly now taken around 8 months to complete.
"Here is a in progress shot of a Tattoo I've been covering up and reworking," California based Nikko said of the picture.
"Really exited to show healed shots. It was some intense tattooing sessions. She's tough as nails."
So what do you think of the big reveal? Any thoughts on Cheryl's bum tattoo?
