Cheryl Cole's bottom tattoo has another celebrity fan – James Arthur!

The X Factor judge made headlines last month when she revealed she'd decorated her entire derriere and lower back with a huge red rose pattern.

Cheryl's bold inking certainly split opinion, but one person who thinks it's fantastic is former X Factor winner James Arthur.

Cheryl Cole's rose tattoo.

Cheeky James tweeted: "I don't get the crack with Cheryl Cole's bum tattoo being slated… I like it… You wouldn't wanna be the thorn between them two roses? #LOVE."

James, however, isn't the first star to speak out in support of Cheryl; she had backing last month from Coronation Street actress Michelle Keegan.

Michelle tweeted: "No gonna lie I actually heart ‪@CherylCole new tattoo! ‪#dontcare."

Cheryl gave us a glimpse of her tattoo in this Instagram picture dated August 2013.

Cheryl, however, doesn't seem too bothered whether people like her tattoo or not, re-tweeting a variety of responses, including one that said just because someone might not like the tattoo didn't mean they didn't like Cheryl.

She also shared a quote by motivational speaker Leo Buscaglia, which read: "The easiest thing to be in the world is you, the most difficult thing to be is what other people want you to be."
