Spice Girls star Melanie Chisholm has opted to keep her tattoos after scrutinising photographs of her body before the skin art.
The singer has often considered tattoo removal because her ink is too visible, and she has used make-up to hide the markings when performing onstage.
But she has abandoned her plans for laser treatment after a reminder of what she used to look like.
In a series of posts on Twitter.com, she writes, "After seeing pictures of myself with no tattoos, I've decided I love them! I look so weird without them! They may be dated but they're me."
