Oh dear. Cara Delevingne seems to be following in her ex Harry Styles' footsteps when it comes to ill advised tattoos.

The model has had her initials 'CJD' inked on the side of her hand. Or put another way, the acronym for Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease. You know, mad cow's disease.

Not that Cara seemed bothered as she uploaded a picture of her new inking on Instagram, writing: "My new CJD (Cara Jocelyn Delevingne) tattoo by @bangbangnyc."

And after having the CJD design completed by New York artist Bang Bang - who also recently inked her 'wifey' Rita Ora - Cara took a turn with the ink gun herself, etching a design on his leg.

"Me tattooing a tattoo legend!! You must be crazy @bangbangnyc," she wrote on Instagram.

It is Cara's second tattoo in as many weeks, having recently had a lion etched on her finger, after being egged on by pal Rihanna.

And don't expect her to stop there, as she recently told Glamour magazine, she wants 'loads' more tats, 'all over her body'.

    Anastasia, it's time to book an appointment at the laser removal clinic.

  • Cheryl Cole

    We get it Cheryl - you're an English rose. But do they have to be that <em>big</em>?

  • Chris Brown

    In a move that was ugly on several levels, real-man-impersonator and least-deserving-celebrity-of-all-time Chris Brown got a picture of a woman's battered face tattooed onto his neck months after battering a woman's face with his bare fists.

  • Eminem

    Slim Shady's insistence on putting daughter Hailie Mathers in his songs was bad enough. This tattoo of her is embarrassing parenting taken a step too far.

  • Eva Longoria

    There's nothing wrong with Eva's (now removed) 'Nine' tattoo per say, except that it represents the folly of getting inked in tribute to your partner - in this case basketball player Tony Parker, jersey number 9 - when they end up cheating on you.

  • Harry Styles

    Harry's tatts all look like they've been scribbled on the back of a biology exercise book in Biro by a fidgety teenager. Quite apt, really.

  • Hayden Panettiere

    Like a job application or a witty riposte, the first run of getting words tattooed onto yourself is to make sure it is spelled properly. Heroes star Hayden stumbled at this first hurdle with her Italian phrase which was meant to say 'live without regrets'. She has since admitted regretting the tattoo.

  • Justin Bieber

    Nothing wrong with an owl, we suppose... represents knowledge and wisdom... good at hunting... it's just that this one likes a bit, well, crap.

  • Justin Bieber 2

    ...and while we're at it, Justin, getting the name of your own album tattooed on your arm is a bit naff - not least of all because you're bound to get older and want to move away from your pop origins into making 'proper music'. Just sayin'.

  • Katie Price

    We know Pricey is fond of a wedding, but this is just ridiculous...

  • Liam Payne

    It's one direction alright - down your forearm towards your hand. Why, we have no idea.

  • Louis Tomlinson

    What is it with 1D and their doodles?!

  • Mark Wahlberg

    Irony or no irony, a tattoo of your own name is NEVER cool.

  • Megan Fox

    The problem with getting a line from King Lear tattooed on your back is that everyone, forever, is going to ask about it, and you're going to have to say 'It's a quote from Shakespeare'. Which is a line that's impossible to say without sounding like a pretentious t**t.

  • Mike Tyson

    It's on your face Mike. Enough said.

  • Pamela Anderson

    Would you get a tattoo reminding everyone of your most embarrassing failure? Of course not. So why Pamela Anderson has one that screams: 'I starred Barbed Wire one of the biggest commercially and critical flops of all time', we have no idea.

  • Steve-O

    The Jackass star got his own face tattooed on his back, which is a lot of pain to go through for a joke.

  • Zayn Malik

    "I got a mic on my arm cos, y'know, I'm all about music". O-kay...
