Cheryl Cole Distracts From Tattoo Drama With Cherubic Childhood Photo

Cheryl Cole has found a novel way of distracting people from her controversial new bottom tattoo – by reminding everyone of her sweet and innocent roots.

Posting a throwback snap of herself as a youngster with mum Joan with the message “#Tbt” on Instagram, 30-year-old Cheryl showed just what a little cutie she was back in her baby Geordie days. While those girly pink frills and dainty bows might be a far cry from today’s tatt-flashing cropped tops and leather trews, there’s still no mistaking those big brown eyes and cheeky grin!

The former Girls Aloud star’s dip into the Tweedy family photo album could be a reaction to the recent digs she’s been receiving over her racy new rose inking, which now covers her entire backside.

As well as being branded “shocking” and “disgusting” by disapproving fans on Twitter,
a member of Cheryl’s entourage also reportedly revealed that mum Joan is less than impressed with her daughter’s new bodywork… “Joan phoned to ask her: ‘What the hell is that?’”, they told the Daily Star.

Well, if she’s trying to butter up her nearest and dearest by reminding her of mummy’s little angel, she’s going the right way about it. How can anyone stay mad at that little cherub!
