Rita Ora - Rita Ora was obsessed with illustration

Rita Ora was ''obsessed'' with an illustration which she had tattooed to her rib cage.

The 'I Will Never Let You Down' singer, who already had a number of inkings, has gone topless on the front cover of the May edition of UK ELLE magazine and shows off the huge pin-up girl tattoo inspired by a Alberto Vargas image.

She told the magazine: ''It's based on an original piece by Alberto Vargas, who was an incredible illustrator in the 1930s.

''He was one of the creators of the pin-up image. That's our build, our power.

''That's why I was obsessed with it, learning what men don't understand about women and what women don't understand about men.

''I was obsessed with the painting a long time ago, and then I got it done six months ago.'

''I just love pretty things, whether it is art, a song or a pair of shoes.''

The 23-year-old star - who is dating DJ Calvin Harris - chose tattooist Bang Bang McCurdy to create the art work, which took five hours and was described as ''the most detailed tattoo'' he'd ever done for a celebrity.

He said at the time: 'The tattoo is on her right ribcage. It's big! When she's standing it's about seven inches tall, but when she's laying down it's about 10 inches, plus.''
