Kerry Katona vows no more tattoo tributes to men
Kerry Katona will never have another tattoo to commemorate her relationships after recently removing an inking she had dedicated to husband Mark Croft
Kerry Katona says getting the tattoo of her husband's name covered up was a "massive moment" for her.
The 30-year-old blonde was seen in her new reality TV show 'Kerry Katona - The Next Chapter' having estranged spouse's Mark Croft's moniker inked over with a phoenix design, and she admits it was a huge thing for her to do following their bitter split in February 2010.
Kerry claims her decision to get the body art was proof her self-confessed cocaine use, which she blames Mark for, was out of control.
She told BANG Showbiz: "It was a massive moment for me (getting the tattoo removed). I'll never get a man's name tattooed on me again, you know I had that tattoo done after he got caught cheating on me with a lap dancer - how mad am I? It shows you how much drugs I was on, bloody hell! It was a phoenix that I got, which is rising from the ashes and is about new beginnings, so it was a big statement."
A phoenix is a mythical firebird which according to legend would ignite its nest at the end of its life so a new, young animal could emerge from the ashes.
In the new series, Kerry is shown getting her life back on track after ditching Mark and getting clean from drugs, and also shows her dealing with her ongoing divorce.
The former 'Dancing On Ice' contestant - who has two children, daughter Heidi, three, and two-year-old son Max, with the former taxi driver, and two daughters Molly, nine, and Lilly-Sue, seven, from her first marriage to Brian McFadden - isn't worried what Mark will think of the programme and doesn't care if he watches it or not.
When asked if she was concerned about her ex seeing the series, she said: "Not in the slightest, anyway I'd rather not talk about him."
'Kerry Katona - The Next Chapter' airs on ITV2 on Wednesdays at 9.00pm.
