Dita Von Teese will never have a tattoo.

Although the burlesque dancer - who was once married to goth rocker Marilyn Manson - is a fan of skin etchings she has no desire to have a permanent design herself.

She tweeted: "I like tattoos, but I know when and how to appreciate something without needing it for myself, and that goes for more than just tattoos!"

37-year-old star is famous for her vintage-inspired wardrobe and glamorous look and insists she isn't a fan of comfort clothes.

She told The Las Vegas Weekly: "I do relax; I just don't relax by wearing jeans and sweatpants. I have lots of robes and pyjamas, and usually if you dropped in on me, I don't wear a full face of makeup... But it's not like I come home and go, 'Wow, I really wish I had some sweatpants to put on right now.' I don't relate that to comfort. I'd rather put on a cashmere robe."

Dita recently revealed she uses clothes to help her feel more confident.

She said: "I used clothes as a way to counteract my extreme shyness when I was younger. I wore a lot of extravagant vintage hats, which can make people somewhat intimidated. I think people will only approach if they have something very, very interesting to say to the girl in the outrageous hat.

"I always felt like a very ordinary looking girl, and I found that dressing in a unique way made me feel less ordinary and more glamorous."
