Pop princess Britney Spears treated herself to an early Christmas present this year -- a new tattoo.
Tuesday night in Studio City tattoo parlor, Britney was accompanied by her little sister Jamie Lynn and an unidentified friend who watched as a star was inked on Britney's right hand. Dressed in a furry, winter coat, the singer turned up at Devil Doll Tattoo & Body Piercing around 10 PM to have the item put on.
Inside, the superstar had a small star inked on her right hand, according to contactmusic.com report. According to an eyewitness she was having hers altered into something less embarrassing.
The singer, who has two young sons, Sean Preston and Jayden James, was seen sporting disheveled hair and constantly adjusting her wayward bra strap while she was getting the new tattoo. According to website, TMZ.com, Spears was followed by a pack of paparazzi and set off a media frenzy at the tattoo parlour.
Speculators say the new tat is to celebrate Brit's newfound freedom in the wake of her split from Kevin Federline.
Britney however is no stranger to the world of tattoos. She has a fairy on her lower back, symbols on the back of her neck and a small design on her right, lower hip.
The TOXIC star, 25, recently apologised to fans for her hard-partying ways, but has not cut down on her nights out on the town.
