'N SYNC star Lance Bass reportedly fled a Las Vegas tattoo parlour in terror, after changing his mind at the last minute.

The singer-turned-trainee astronaut was guest of honour at the launch of HART AND HUNTINGDON - owned by singer Pink's on/off boyfriend Carey Hart and nightclub promoter JOHN HUNTINGDON - and planned to take home a permanent reminder of the day on his arm.

But Bass had a late change of heart.

A source tells American tabloid the NEW YORK DAILY NEWS, "I've never heard a man scream before. Now he has a dot on his arm where the needle touched him."
