Cher Lloyd gets butterflies as she unveils her new - and eighth - tattoo on Twitter

By Georgina Littlejohn

New look: Cher Lloyd unveiled her new butterflies tattoo on Twitter this weekend - and new hair extensions in Miami last week

She already has an assortment of tattoos scattered across her person.

But Cher Lloyd clearly thought that seven was just not enough as she unveiled a new inking this weekend.

The X Factor contestant showed off some new designs on her right arm, an extension of one she already had.

The 17-year-old posted a black and white photo on her Twitter page of her arm, which had been inked with five butterflies.

They were joined by a question mark and a peace sign, as she added to the bird carrying a ribbon that she already had.

On the ribbon is the word 'Boo', a tribute to her late uncle Edward 'Boo Boo' Smith, who died last September after being tricked into taking a heroin substitute.

She had the design inked two months ago and also had an empty birdcage on her left arm to look as though the bird had flown free from it when she put her arms together.

An inquest in December heard how Mr Smith, 34, was found dead in his Malvern, Worcestershire home after being 'deceived' into taking a lethal dose of methadone.

Cher wrote on her Twitter: 'Happy birthday Uncle Boo, missing you. New tattoo. Xxxx.'

In an interview last year, Lloyd admitted: 'I’m not even old enough to have a tattoo, but I have three. I know it’s naughty.'

She also noted Cowell - who has signed her to his Syco label - doesn't approve of her body art: 'Even though Simon doesn't approve of tattoos the thing is I'm my own person and think it'd be cool to get another one.'

Paying tribute: Cher had a bird flying from a cage done in March, which she added the butterflies to

Cher already has a bow on her back, musical note on her left hand and Spanish phrase on her right arm which reads Bolsillo Lleno De Suenos' - which means 'pocketful of dreams'

In January, she then got song lyrics on her left arm - 'All That You Have Is Your Soul' - lyrics from a Tracy Chapman song of the same name, and an image of a large diamond on her right hand

Cher also unveiled a new hairstyle as she landed in Miami last week, where she had the tattoo done and where she is believed to be working on her debut album.

The long brown hair extensions come a month after she ditched her fiery red locks for a sleek dark bob, which she added too with caramel and blond extensions.
