It was only a week ago that Cara Delevingne got her very first tatto and then introduced the world to her 'roar finger' via her Instagram feed. But the pet lion on her index finger must have needed some company, as one week later she's returned to her tattoo artist Bang Bang's chair on Monday and got him to ink her initials CJD on the side of her hand (on the same paw as the lion finger).
This time she got her initials CJD (Cara Jocelyn Delevingne) stamped onto her hand - just in case she'll forget 'em. But unfortunately her initials also stand for mad cow disease - Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease.
Cara Delevingne and Rita Ora tattoo Bang Bang
It's a Bang Bang tradition to let his A-List clients have a go at tattooing on his skin and then have them Instagram it (bien sur). As after getting tattooed, Rihanna gave him an umbrella with a R on his arm and Justin Bieber gave him a muscly mouse with the caption 'swaggy.' Cara followed her BFF Rita and RiRi's footsteps and picked up the needle and sketched her initials inside a heart on Bang Bang's leg. She then tweeted a picture of her with the caption: "Me tattooing a tattoo legend!! You must be crazy."
With a huge lion face swallowing up her index finger and rather large initials, Cara is throwing out the rule book as models are advised to remain like a blank canvas. Unlike some other models Cara D hasn't gone for a star hidden under a ponytail or a mini anchor a la Kate Moss. She's obviously caught the tattooing bug so we're guessing she'll be back in Mr Bang Bang's chair. So what's next? Well she's got her initials and her star sign, so perhaps a 'Made in London' or a union jack? Here's hoping not.
Mr Bang Bang has said of his supermodel client ‘It was her first tattoo, but you know, she was not nervous! Not one bit. She was perfect!’ He added that the lion is 'not an easy one but she took it like a G! Cara was good in the chair, real good. First tattoo… she was an absolute pro. There was no diva supermodel behaviour, not at all, she’s the coolest most down to earth girl.'
