Cheryl Cole Defends New Bum Tattoo, Which Took 14 Hours To Have Done, And Covers Her Entire Bottom

Posted: Updated:

Cheryl Cole has come out fighting, after critics were damning of her new tattoo, which covers the entire lower half of her back and derriere, and took 15 hours to create.

With many fans expressing their disappointment on Twitter, the former Girls Aloud singer has written:

"People are entitled to their own opinion. Personally I've never really concerned myself with other people's body parts!

"I've had it for seven-eight months but only just had it detailed. I can pretty much safely say I'm now done!"
