Captioning the image “the girl with the dragon tattoo”, the former Geordie Shore star posed with her back to the mirror to share with her followers the sprawling tat depicting a Chinese-style dragon decorated with flowers.

The tattoo – which took a seven hour session at Sydney’s Bondi Ink with tattoo artist Cally-Jo, from MTV program Just Tattoo of Us – takes up a large chunk of the 29-year-old’s back, crawling up slightly towards her rib cage.
Over on her Instagram story, Charlotte thanked Cally-Jo and Bondi Ink for accommodating her mammoth session.
“Yes I took a trip to Bondi ink, yet again like I always do in Sydney and me and Cally Jo did a mammoth session of seven hours.
“Seven hours. I want to say a huge thanks to Cally Jo – I don’t know how we went through that together – and to Bondi Ink for staying open. We were there until 1am in the morning. I can’t quite believe it.”
The new ink comes a week after it was confirmed Charlotte and her jungle beau, MAFS star Ryan Gallagher, called it quits shortly after ending their stint on Australia’s I’m A Celebrity … Get Me Out Of Here!
Their short-lived romance was plagued with rumours it was nothing but a “showmance” put on for Channel 10 cameras.
Last week, Charlotte told 10 daily, “When me and Ryan came out of the jungle I made no secret that I had been in a very long relationship and I wasn’t ready to jump into another one.
“I got really upset about it and I was a little bit worried because I did feel like me and Ryan were going in a bit more of a serious direction than what I wanted,” Charlotte said.
Following their evictions from the jungle, Charlotte and Ryan spent some time together in South Africa, where they came to a mutual decision to “cool it off”.
Charlotte said coming out of the surreal environment that set the scene for their romance was a shock to both, and that returning to real life was an adjustment.
“It was so different and obviously I went back to England and he went back to Australia. The bubble popped.”
She added that she and Ryan intend to stay friends.
“I love that boy to bits, he’s amazing,” she said. “Like, my time in there would not have been the same without him. We had an amazing connection and we’re all going to be meeting up, having a big reunion in Melbourne, so it’s all going to be fine.”
Before heading into the jungle Charlotte was in a two-year relationship with Love Island UK’s Joshua Ritchie.
