Cher Lloyd has at least 20 known tattoos:
Cher Lloyd got a pair of tattoos in memory of her uncle Edward ‘Boo Boo’ Smith, who died of an accidental overdose when he was only 34 years old. Boo Boo passed away in September 201o while Cher was competing on The X Factor, and she got the tattoos in March 2011 which would have been his birthday. “I got a tattoo in memory of my uncle which is a bird flying out of a cage,” she says. On her right forearm is a bird carrying a ribbon with the word ‘Boo’, and in the same location on her left arm is a birdcage with an open door. She shared a picture of the ink of her twitter with the caption “Happy birthday uncle boo, missing you. New tattoo. Xxxx”
Only two months later, she got a huge butterfly tattoo on her forearm which surrounds the bird but does not cover it.
Cher Lloyd got the question mark tattoo on her wrist in January 2011 and the peace sign shortly after in March 2011. She filled in her arm with a butterfly partial-sleeve in May 2011. She also added her husband Craig’s name in May 2012, after these photos was taken.
Cher Lloyd has the lyrics “You are my sunshine, My only sunshine” tattooed on her left forearm. We believe that this tattoo is for her husband (boyfriend at the time) Craig Monk, to whom she tweeted these lyrics a few months later. Along with the lyrics, she also got a little heart right above it with a letter “C” for Craig.
Cher Lloyd’s very first tattoo was a treble clef surrounded by tiny music notes. She got the tattoo on the back of her right hand on her 16th birthday. The placement of this tattoo is similar to her X-Factor mentor Cheryl Cole‘s tribal hand tattoo.
Cher Lloyd got this rose and Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) sugar skull tattoo on her left arm in July 2011. The design is very complex. The face of the skull is covered in swirls and flowers with a diamond on the forehead. The nose is shaped like an upside-down heart while the round eyes have red hearts in the center. A single gold tooth adds another pop of color. (more…)
