Mel C - Mel C gets feather tattoo

Mel C has got a new feather tattoo.

The former Spice Girls star has had the design etched onto her right arm and it is joined to her famous barbed wire inking, which wraps around her entire upper arm.

Mel - full name Melanie Chisholm - proudly showed off her latest tattoo in a photo she posted on her Instagram account on Tuesday morning (18.03.14).

The pop star sported a make-up free face and scraped her hair up into a high ponytail as she posed with her arm above her head to reveal the design along with the caption, ''New Ink.''

Mel's decision to get the tattoo comes after the 'Wannabe' singer's admission she had toyed with the idea of getting her barbed wire tattoo removed, because the design - which was popular in the 90s - had become outdated.

Mel told BANG Showbiz: ''Sometimes I think, 'I hate that one, I wish I could get rid of it.' The first one I ever got was the band around my arm, it's just so very 90s, it just looks really dated.''

The 40-year-old star even considered undergoing painful laser tattoo removal surgery to get rid of the design, but couldn't go through with the procedure because she has become so attached to it.

She explained: ''When I saw myself photographed and they were airbrushed out, it just looked so odd, they're very much a part of me so I've grown to love them again.

''I'm a bit indecisive. The laser treatment is painful and expensive; you may as well just leave it.''
