Cara Delevingne has (at the time of publishing) an impressive 20 tattoos - it all started in May 2013 when she had a lion tattooed onto her index finger, and progressed through to being inked by her _Suicide Squad_ co-star, Margot Robbie. Cara has come clean about her tattoo obsession to Grazia Daily, and confessed: 'I can't stop!'
Cara's tattoos are more than works of hand drawn body art though. They have been the main feature of ad campaigns (see her Tag Heuer ad), were referenced in her range of Mulberry handbags and have even been copied on the catwalk (models at Giamba were covered in Cara-esque temporary tats).
Her artist of choice is usually New York based Bang Bang aka Keith McCurdy, who has come into the limelight as the tattoo artist of many A-listers, including Cara's friends Rita Ora and Rihanna but also Katy Perry and Justin Bieber to name a few.
Keith is known for creating some of the most realistic and detailed tattoos out there, and is now considered one of the most in-demand tattooist of the entertainment industry. His name comes from the the two guns that are tattooed on his neck, and incredibly taught himself his craft in his mother's kitchen.
For a brief moment Cara even turned tattooist, inking Bang Bang himself in NYC and tattooing onto the bottom her Suicide Squad co-star Margot Robbie's foot. Getting more tattoos done herself certainly isn't out of the question though - she told ELLE that her next one would probably be a fairy inspired by one of her friends.
While we wait to gawp over the new addition on Instagram though, we're taking a thorough look back at some of the exisiting Cara D tattoos that we've long admired. From her undying love for a full English breakfasts and her quest for quiet to the eyes on the back of her neck and her matching double D with model pal Jourdan Dunn; there's a lot to unpick. Here's a look back at Cara's tattoos so far, and where the inspiration for them came from.

Though the actress has yet to debut the elephant tatt, tattoo artist Doctor Woo unveiled his artwork on his Instagram feed.
A serpant on her left hand
Her go-to tattoo artist of late - Doctor Woo - revealed a darker inking for the model-turned actress. Could there be a hidden meaning behind her new skeletal snake design - debuted days after her ex, musician Annie Clark aka St Vincent made her first red carpet appearence with new girlfriend Kristen Stewart. Hmm...
The Roman numerals and
During a trip to Rio de Janeiro Cara got a couple of tattoos from Daniel Tucci - including a 'number 12' in black numerals on her side and a Southern Cross behind her ear.
Coat of Arms tattoo on her left ribcage and 18. the mysterious white dots above it
In January 2015 Cara got a tiny coat of arms with a D at the bottom on her ribcage. This was inked by tattoo artist Dr Woo in LA.
Just above it, she also inked five white dots, which she has said represents the members of her immediate family.
Her Mum's name, Pandora, on her bicep

The 'breathe deep' white tattoo on her bicep
Cara has 'breathe deep' in white ink on her bicep, which is a reminder to herself to keep cool.
'Made in England' written on her left foot
Cara explained to The Guardian that her 'Made in England' tattoo on her foot represents how she feels as a model. "You're looked through, you're not looked at, you are treated as a kind of mannequin. I got a tattoo saying Made in England above my foot to represent that, that I felt like a doll for so long. Because you are just a kind of puppet, you know, entertainment. You kind of feel that you need to have no soul really, to do that job, a little bit."
Bacon tattoo on the botton of her left foot
Cara has a 'Made in England' tattoo on the bottom of her right foot, and Bacon on her left. Cara explained the tattoo to The Cut: "The tattoo was inspired by my love for bacon, obviously. I think of bacon every five seconds. It's the meatiness. I love the salt. Bacon is love to me. Bacon will always love me back. It's unconditional."
The initials 'CJD' on her right hand
Cara's CJD tattoo on her wrist stands for her initials, Cara Jocelyn Delevingne. This was also done by Bang Bang NYC.
Diamond in her right ear
Cara had a diamond tattooed inside her ear in February 2014 - perhaps a nod to her pal Rihanna's song Diamond?
The 'Double D' tattoo she got with her pal Jourdan Dunn
Cara and Jourdan have matching 'DD' tattoos on their hips, inked by Bang Bang NYC back in June 2014.
Following actor Joel Kinnaman and director David Ayer, who allowed fellow Suicide Squad members to ink the word 'SKWAD' on various body parts, in August last year, Cara decided join to them. Margot and Cara gave eachother matching toemojis - which is the art of a smiley face eteched on to the bottom of ones toes.
