N-Dubz star Fazer has unveiled his finished tattoo sleeve, complete with a tribute to his passion for music in the form of a huge microphone.

The rapper-come-producer revealed his latest body art to fans on Instagram yesterday, showing off a giant design that covers his bicep and includes a rose and musical notes, as well as the old school microphone.

He uploaded a before and after shot of his arm so that his followers could see the drastic change and praised his tattoo artist, writing: "#Before & #After @craigbjtattoos #ArtInItsPurestForm".

Fazer (real name Richard Rawson) then posted a video of himself lying in the tattooist's chair and having the design etched onto his skin earlier that day.

But although the pop star looks calm and collected in the short clip, he later admitted that the gruelling session had been pretty tough to bear.

"I forgot how much this burns!!!!" he tweeted. "I was in the tattoo chair from 2:45 to 10pm this evening! The pain close 2the end was a LOT!! Mad sensitive! But my guy @craigbainjoseph is 100."

Almost 8 hours under a needle?! Rather you than us, Fazer!

Although he didn't explain the meaning behind his impressive new body art, fans were quick to assume that the large rose represented his baby daughter, Ava Rose, who was born last February.

Fazer has been besotted with his little girl since her birth, claiming that she has given him a "reason to live".

While he's been busy getting tattooed and playing the doting dad, Fazer has also been cheering on his N-Dubz bandmate Dappy in the Celebrity Big Brother house.
