Cara Delevingne & Rita Ora Get New Tattoos

Cara Delevingne and Rita Ora have reaffirmed their status as wifeys for lifey by going to hold each others hands while getting inked up at New York’s Bang Bang tattoo parlour last week.

The Radioactive singer and her model BFF spent hours watching each other get their hot new body art painted on by celebrity tattoo artist Bang Bang McCurdy, with Rita later sharing an Instagram snap of her impressive new inking.

Say hello to my new little friend Rosetta…thank you @bangbangnyc she’s beautiful”, the 22-year-old posted about her elaborate 7 inch pin-up girl tatt (which took a whopping five hours to pen) covering her right ribcage.

Cara, who is rumoured to be dating One Direction‘s Harry Styles once again, opted for a slightly more discreet tattoo for her sixth inking and got a scrawling of her mum Pandora’s name on her left forearm – but she still needed gal pal Rita to hold her hand. Aw! 

The party pals then made a night of it by ordering Mexican food from local takeout Calexico and throwing on hamburger suits for an impromptu 2am dance party… as you do.

“She just pulled it out of her purse, put it on, and was like, ‘just me and my hamburger, what, what!,” Bang Bang told E!. “She’s hilarious. She’s genuinely fun, one of my favorite people.” 

And it looks like the bushy-browed beauty may even have already chosen her next design. “Cara actually texted me the next day and wanted to come in for another one,” Bang Bang added. “She really wanted me to tattoo her favourite piece of food, but I told her to wait a bit, just to see if she still wants it.”

Burger-themed body art? Er, we reckon you should listen to wise man Bang, Cara…
