Los Angeles: Singer Cheryl Cole's mother Joan Callaghan was reportedly aghast after she saw her daughter's latest tattoo, which is spread across her entire lower back and extends to her entire derriere.
Cheryl's new inking is that of an English rose, and it is in red and black.
After her mother saw it via a photograph posted online Cheryl's tattoo artist Nikki Hurtado, she gave the singer a nasty call, reports dailystar.co.uk.
"Joan phoned to ask her, 'What the hell is that?' She was shocked. She knew Cheryl was getting more tattoos done, but had no idea how big this one actually was. It freaked her out to see it in pictures before seeing it in the flesh as well," a source said.
Cheryl's boyfriend Tre Holloway knew about her plans and supported her.
"Prior to unveiling it, Cheryl had only told boyfriend Tre Holloway the full plan, and he was behind her all the way. He told her he loved it," a source said.
"But her mum couldn't help asking if she'd done the right thing. Cheryl told her it was a bit late to be worrying now," a source added.
