The last year has seen Natasha Giggs experience much heartache, but that must have been nothing compared to her latest bout of pain.
The brunette made a visit to Flecky's Tattoo Studio in Manchester yesterday to add some body art to her slim figure.
Sitting in the chair for what must have seemed like forever, the mother-of-two eventually got the chance to show off the new design on her back.
That must have hurt! Natasha Giggs shows off her new back tattoo in Flecky's Tattoo Studio in Manchester yesterday
Not in pain: The mother-of-two looked relaxed as she had her current tattoo added to and coloured in
The large artwork, which covers the length of Natasha's back on her right hand side, features nine stars of all different sizes and a swirl pattern that connects them all.
Rather than have the shapes coloured in a nice bright shade, the former Celebrity Big Brother contestant decided to have them darkened but this added less femininity to the design.
The large tattoo definitely stole the limelight from the small design that Natasha has below her neck.
The small red heart sits with the phrase 'Follow your heart' and was obviously her subtle introduction to the world of body art.
Baring all: The brunette had just a bright pink towel to cover her modesty as the tattooist did his work

Natasha didn't look in pain as the male tattooist did his work, and kept her sugar levels up by having a bottle of Coca Cola to hand.
She wore a pair of grey jogging bottoms and had just a bright pink towel to cover her modesty as she decorated her back.
She later emerged from the studio grinning from ear to ear and wearing a matching grey hoody with the slogan 'I'm the black sheep' emblazoned across it.

Natasha - who is married to footballer Rhodri Giggs - was obviously chuffed with the finished result as she took to Twitter last night.
'Thanku sooo much to @fleckystattoo new ink is siiiiiick!!! My back is on fire tho haha...' she wrote.
However, there was no time to rest and let her tattoo heal, as today she was back to work having a manicure and a pedicure in preparation for a photo shoot tomorrow.
