Kerry also went on to show some of her older tattoos that the famous artist completed for her as part of her sleeve.

These included the word ‘blessed’ inscribed on her forearm which Jay also added to on the day and also showed a rose and compass design on her other arm.

The update comes after the former singer went live on her Instagram Story on Thursday as she returned to Jay’s private parlor.

She could be seen chatting to the Tattoo Fixers star and looked completely unfazed as he etched the large design onto her arm.

Her blonde locks were pulled back into a practical bun as she went makeup free for the long session.

Kerry is no stranger to tattoos as she already has several roses and an angel on her arm as well as her children’s names inked on various parts of her body.

Kerry, who is engaged to Ryan Mahoney, is a proud mother to daughters Molly, 19, and Lilly-Sue, 18, with Brian McFadden, Heidi, 13, and Max, 12, with Mark Croft, and eight-year-old DJ with the late George Kay.

Molly and Lilly have their names etched on her wrists, DJ is behind her right ear and she has an elaborate back piece bearing the names of Heidi and Maxwell.

Last year, she underwent laser surgery to have the letter ‘G’ – a tribute to her late husband George Kay – removed from her ring finger.

She also has a G behind her ear and the pair had matching rose tattoos on their shoulder before George’s death from a cocaine overdose in 2019.

In October, Kerry took her daughter, Lily-Sue for her first tattoo as she marked turning 18 and filmed the experience for her YouTube channel.

Filming inside the Black & Even parlor in Tunbridge Wells, Kerry gushed to her daughter: ‘First tattoo. Oh my God, I can’t wait for this! Getting your first tattoo with me!’

The mother-of-five added: ‘I think it’s dead cool, I like that girl’, and cheered her on as she got a delicate flower inking on her ribcage.

Lilly-Sue stunned her mother as she barely winced while getting the inking – despite the rib being a notoriously painful spot as the skin is thin and directly over bones.

She then proudly displayed the artwork, three flowers with the saying ‘no rain, no flowers’ beneath, as she explained: ‘You can’t have the good without the bad.’
