When we first spotted these pics of Katy B at the Elle Style Awards we thought she'd gone and got herself some tribal tattoos etched onto her shapely pins.

But luckily the Brit singer was just wearing a pair of tights featuring the striking design.

Sorry Katy, we really do love you. Your choice of hosiery less so.
