The picture was posted on Instagram by her tattoo artist who is presumably very proud of his work.
Chezza visited the tattooist in Los Angeles to get the ink ‘reworked’.
“Here is a in progress shot of a Tattoo I've been covering up and reworking,” Nikko wrote alongside the picture, without naming his client.
However, the design somewhat made it pretty obvious after it caused such a storm when we just thought it was on her back.
'Really exited to show healed shots. It was some intense tattooing sessions. She's tough as nails,' he added.
Reworked all over her bum cheeks! We actually are gobsmacked.
There are a number of things that are shocking us right now:
Firstly, that giant great whopping bit of ink.
Secondly, that a picture of Cheryl Cole’s bare bum is floating around the internet.
Is she happy about this? That’s what we want to know!
This is probably the most shocking celebrity tattoo we have ever laid eyes upon.
