Cheryl Cole's Rose Tattoo: Fashion Accessory or Not?
The recent media frenzy about British girl pop group Girls Aloud's Cheryl Cole and an instagram picture of her new English rose tattoo covering her lower back, derriere and thighs which took 8 painstaking months to complete made me rethink the taboo about tattoos.
This beautiful work of art by California-based tattooist Nikko Hurtado actually looks good enough to be a statement fashion accessory on its own.
Just think about any fashion accessory - a ring, necklace or bag which you absolutely adore and feel that it compliments you and represents your style and personality. This accessory would be one you would not leave home without.
A beautiful tattoo might just be that permanent fashion accessory like a logo to a brand that a company chooses to define itself with. Most companies change their logo by tweaking it slightly and not by much whereas some companies do overhaul their logo after a period of time.
To get inked with a permanent mark such as a tattoo on your body, one must really be absolutely sure what they would be going through and decide on the image or logo they would like to be branded with that will follow them throughout the rest of their life.
In this case, Cheryl Cole's decision at 30-years-old does not seem like a rash one.

This beautiful tattoo at a discreet area of the body is a perfect accessory for leather leggings and sexy, plunging V-back dresses.
