TOWIE star Pete Wicks has been sharing plenty of tattoo updates with us lately, but none have seemed more PAINFUL that his latest...

Pete is currently in the process of having a leg sleeve tattoo inked and today's session involved his kneecap. Rather you than us, Pete!

Taking to Instagram, Pete shared a video of his tattoo artist hard at work. They can be seen adding more detail to Pete's sleeve, specifically around his knee and just seeing that needle has already got us feeling rather light-headed.

Pete, meanwhile, seemed to be coping a little better - although he did advise his followers against having their kneecap inked.

He said: "Just for the record, anyone wanting to get their kneecap tattooed... I suggest you f**king don't."

The reality star added a crying emoji beside his photo, along with the caption: "Knee cap #Tattoo #Ink."

Oh, Pete! It'll all be worth it in the end, right?

The Essex boy already has an impressive collection of body art and recently told fans he is "addicted" to tattoos. Since starting work on his leg, Pete has been showing off his new design on Instagram.

While he has received a slew of compliments about his tat (and his pain threshold), there were some who criticised Pete's decision to get all inked up.

He, however, had a message for his critics and told them: "Here we go again..."too many tattoos" - I happen to like them and as it's my body, I'll probably do what I want with it so sssshhh now."

Pete is currently dating his TOWIE co-star Megan McKenna, and the pair were recently reunited after her girls' holiday to Marbella. The couple attended Jess Wright's shoe collection launch in London last night (1 June), along with a slew of familiar faces including Ferne McCann, Danielle Armstrong and Frankie Essex.
