Rarely seen X Factor winner James Arthur shows off huge new tattoos on holiday | The Sun

X FACTOR favourite James Arthur has revealed a fresh tattoo sleeve and inkings down his legs after previously fearing he was "typecast" by his body art.

The Say You Won't Let Go vocalist, 34, appears to have done a U-Turn following the comments he made back in 2016 – and his decision to have his designs lasered off.

Pussycat Doll vocalist Nicole Scherzinger's protege has now revealed his latest tattoo designs as he sprawled out on a yacht.

The rarely-seen star opted to a sport a trendy Gucci co-ord, yet it was the sprawling floral design spanning his left forearm which took centre stage.

Etchings on James' right leg also couldn't be missed, showing a heart playing card across his kneecap followed by animal, butterfly and skull designs on his shin.

He was seen clutching a beer as he lay on the deck, finishing off his look with a pair of sunglasses.

Another shot saw him posing side-profile against a flower wall backdrop, with his arm tatt in full view.

Back in 2016 James was keen to launch a Hollywood career and decided he needed to rid himself of his body art in order to make it in Tinseltown.

At the time, James revealed he had already undergone nine painful sessions to laser off his inkings.

He was keen to remove several tattoos, including an owl on his neck, a tear on his face and a crown on his hand.
