The reality star opted for a huge Buddha design in the centre of his chest, although, Alex's new tattoo did appear to divide fans.

Some were all for it, with one user commenting: "This is the most gorgeous tattoo, beautifully done," while others weren't so keen. Another follower questioned: "Why bro?"

Alex, meanwhile, hinted that his new tattoo is not yet completely finished. His latest design appears to be covering an old tattoo of a quote written across his chest on one side and Alex added the caption: "Started my chest today. So happy with it big thank you to @chelsealouiisetattoo she is sickkkkkkk."

Could that mean there's more to add? Maybe Alex is up for doing an Aaron Chalmers? The Geordie Shore star has had his entire torso covered in tattoos!

Alex's new addition comes after he and girlfriend Olivia Buckland have been settling into their new home.

The couple have now brought their first house together in Essex and officially moved in last month, before jetting off on a romantic break to Barbados.

Alex and Olivia are currently getting ready to welcome their new arrival, as the pair have decided to get themselves a puppy - and he's an extremely CUTE one at that.

Alex shared an update on his and Olivia's pet pup Reggie, telling fans: "Man like reggie is growing, top picture was 2 weeks old @oliviadbuck 5 weeks and we can go get him."

The couple first got together while starring on Love Island's second series and their relationship has gone from strength to strength since filming wrapped this summer.

So much so, that Alex and Olivia have already spoken about marriage and babies.

Speaking exclusively to Reveal, Olivia told us: "We'd love to have kids and we'd love to have a little boy first we think. Alex is excited to be a dad because he didn't have his dad there for him when he was younger, so I think he really wants to prove himself. We even talk about how we'd dress our baby too!"

"One of Alex's friends just had a baby actually and a couple of weeks back he sent me a picture with a tiny little baby in his arms - that definitely made me broody!" Olivia laughed. "I was like, 'Oh my god. Don't show me that!' It's so cute."
