Cheryl feels like she has outgrown the tattoo and is worried it no longer fits with her image.
The Girls Aloud singer is reportedly planning to undergo painful laser surgery to have the design around her thigh removed.
Despite having consultations on removing the inking, the ‘Biology’ star – who is married to soccer player Ashley Cole – is not planning to have any of her other four more discreet designs treated.
An insider explained: "Cheryl is happy with her other tattoos – particularly her ‘Mrs Cole’ inking at the back of her neck – and they’re small enough not to be as obvious as the one on her thigh."
Speaking about the design recently, Cheryl said: "You do daft things when you’re young, don’t you?"
Cheryl isn’t the only star to consider having her tattoos removed.
Earlier this year, it was claimed Pamela Anderson wanted her body art treated because she feared they would become an "eyesore" as she gets older.
A friend revealed: "Pamela is seeing the effects of age and hard living on her body. Her skin is getting soft. She feels like her tattoos are going to become eyesores.
"She’s not a kid anymore. She doesn’t want blurry ink all over her wrinkled arms."
