Ricky Rayment has proved he is a huge fan of Gigi Hadid by getting the supermodels face tattooed onto his arm.

Yup, we're not kidding.

Paying a visit to his tattooist, Ricky has added to his body ink collection and had his lower arm covered in a brand new tattoo.

Taking to Twitter, Ricky showed off his new design in all its glory with several photos, and many fans quickly recognised Gigi's face sitting pretty on his arm.

She appears with mascara running from her eyes and is pictured in front of a building backdrop. The whole thing is pretty impressive, right?

Replying to a fan who asked the former TOWIE star if he had purposely chosen the model, Ricky replied: "It's based on her. But a dark modern angel."

Not everyone first thought it was Gigi, though, several of Ricky's followers actually thought the portrait was of Gemma Collins.

One Twitter user commented: "For a second I thought this was @missgemcollins."


While Ricky hasn't yet revealed the meaning behind his latest inking, he did tell fans it isn't yet finished, despite him already having endured 10 hours of work on his arm... That's dedication!

Ricky's new tattoo comes after he recently hit the headlines for kissing Ex On The Beach star Nancy-May Turner.

The two reality stars had been partying at London nightclub DSTRKT and were later snapped locking lips in a taxi home. The smooch had everyone speculating whether a new romance is on the cards for the pair, but not giving anything away, Ricky simply told fans he'd had "such a good night" with Nancy.

She is the first girl Ricky has been linked to following his split with Marnie Simpson and their PDA didn't seem to sit well with his ex-fiancee.

Appearing to hit out at Ricky for the kiss, Marnie took to Twitter as the pictures surfaced and cryptically tweeted: "DESPERATE."

While she didn't directly reference Ricky in her tweet, fans were quick to put two and two together.

Marnie and Ricky enjoyed a whirlwind romance that saw him propose to her in Greece on the eleventh series of Geordie Shore. However, things didn't work out for the pair and Marnie confirmed in September 2015 she and Ricky had split.

She has since ruled out any chance of a reunion and Ricky has admitted he doesn't regret popping the question.
