Getting tattoos can be addictive and it seems Cara Delevingne is a new ink convert.

The model got her first body art just one week ago but she clearly couldn’t wait to go back for more.

The 20-year-old got her second tattoo on Monday, this time picking her initials as the design.

Cara, whose middle name is Jocelyn, had ‘CJD’ etched onto the side of her right hand in a cursive script.

She returned to Bang Bang in New York, who inked a lion’s head onto her index finger one week earlier.

Cara may be a new fan of tattoos but it seems she’s not so keen on the pain that comes with them.

As she was photographed while the artist worked his magic with a needle, the Victoria’s Secret model was seen wincing.

At times she furrowed her famously bushy eyebrows but eventually the star relaxed into it.

She was visibly excited to see her new artwork and looked delighted with the results as she showed them off for the camera.

Earlier in the day a giddy Cara had tweeted: ‘Tattoo number two is coming sooooooon!!!’

Before she left Cara and Bang Bang had a role reversal and the model turned tattooist.

Bang Bang often gets his celebrity clientele to add an inking to his body and Cara opted to etch her initials inside a heart onto his leg.

Cara dressed casually for her appointment, sporting a black baggy jumper along with black and white striped jeans.

The fresh-faced It Girl also appeared to be make-up free but was seen applying a slick of cherry red lip gloss while expertly displaying her new ink before she left the parlour.

It was in fact Cara’s famous friend Rihanna who recommended Bang Bang to her, and Cara thanked her pal for the suggestion after getting her lion tattoo.

Writing on her Twitter page, Cara said: 'My first tattoo!! Lions rule! Thank you so much @BangBang @badgalriri.'

Gushing even further over her new addition, she later added: 'I am so happy! Thanks again @BangBang @elemags ! RAWWWW.'

Rihanna shared a photo of Cara’s inking on her Instagram page and told her followers: ‘My lover caradelevingne just came over and got tagged for the first time!! Only by the best. @BangBang’

She is just a kid, making child like decisions, shes had no time to develop good taste and some common sense. I always find it weird when models get tattoo's, surely that is just plain self destructive, her body is her livelihood, defacing it, takes away from her marketable appeal. That s just common sense.

She always makes me think of Stewie that baby off the cartoon Family Guy.

Don't you have to be licensed to do tattoos in the UK? Can they get in trouble for Cara working on him?

I can't imagine that her modeling agency is too thrilled that she's basically defacing their property! After all, it might be her body, but she's under contract. I would imagine they would view her tattoos as damaging the goods. Now every photo shoot will require the additional work of airbrushing that crap off her hands. What a silly little girl she is - she's going to end her career pretty quickly, I'd say.

Weird tats. She is kinda intriguing though.

Hmmm her initials are CJD. How unfortunate, isn't that dubbed as a human mad cow disease? Pretty much sums her up I suppose.

Looks like a drugged up mess, sorry, but she does. Someone help her before she ends up dead!

I don't mind her one bit, but god those tattoos are awful and in a terrible location.

This girl gets a lot of slack and I think the media donning her as 'the new kate moss', was their way of giving ammunition to the general public, who would of course outcry. There's no question that she looks great dolled up, but what people fail to realise is their showbiz representation and real life self are two different people! As far as personality goes, like a lot of people in the showbiz world they can be shallow and boring. As for Cara Dull-evinge, she probably shouldn't become attached to the ink, may end up looking like Julia Gnuse.
