Britney Spears has shown off her parenting skills on her latest night out by taking her 15-year-old sister to a tattoo parlour.

The singer made no effort to hide the fact she was visiting a Los Angeles tattoo parlour late on Tuesday with her sister, Jamie Lynn in tow. The pair stayed in full view of the cameras in the Devil Doll Tattoo Parlour, as the mother-of-two got a small black star tattooed onto her right hand.

Her early Christmas present will join the collection of tattoos already on her body that include a butterfly and vine on her right foot, a pair of Pink dice on her left wrist, a sexy fairy on her lower back and a Japanese symbol on her bikini line.

Estranged husband Kevin Federline has a matching pair of blue dice tattooed on his right forearm.

The 'Toxic' singer has come under fire for her wild partying and 'unmotherly' behaviour since leaving her husband. Her new friendship with socialite Paris Hilton has seen her become a frequent visitor to the Los Angeles party scene.

Kevin has reportedly filed for custody of their two sons claiming that he can prove that Britney is an unfit mother.
