Cara Delevingne 'Advised Against Copying Kate Moss' With New Tattoo?

Model allegedly wanted two swallows on her back instead of a lion on her finger

By On

Cara Delevingne proudly flaunted her awesome new tattoo online earlier this week: the face of a lion on her finger.

The inking won the support of Rihanna, who tweeted her love for the artist who did it.

However, it has today been claimed that a lion on her finger wasn't Cara's original plan. The Sun reports that she had intended to get two large swallows etched on her lower back, but was advised against it.

Apparently her management feared that she would look like a copycat of her idol Kate Moss if she went ahead with that - and urged her to have a re-think. We think the lion looks pretty cool though, don't you?

Diamonds star Rihanna, who invited Delevingne to hang out backstage at one of her recent world tour gigs in New York, apparently took the British babe to the tattoo parlour in Brooklyn to get the tatt. Cara tweeted:

The Victoria's Secret babe and Rihanna have become fast friends since the former emerged on the party scene and, though the Diamonds star has arguably the biggest reputation for being a bit of a wild child, it seems Cara isn't too far behind.

Last week she set tongues wagging over an alleged bag of white powder that reportedly fell out of her pocket while she looked for her keys. She has not commented on what the powder was, but suffice to say there has been much speculation.
