Rita Ora has flaunted her latest body art – a tattoo of a ballerina. The R.I.P. singer, who recently broke up with her DJ boyfriend Calvin Harris, shared a photo of her new inking on Twitter and Instagram. Rita, 23, revealed that the intricate design had been free drawn onto her arm before being made permanent.

"We're gona be ballerinas when were 102! @andacloud9 #iloveubestie @bangbangnyc free-hand drawn on. You beast! Love you my brother!" wrote Rita next to the black-and-white snap. The chart-topper seemed more than happy with the result as she posted another photo of the etching. "Undercut Massive...with my little ballerina @yaro___," she captioned it, showing off the inking from another angle. The mastermind behind Rita's latest body art was her close friend, tattoo artist Bang Bang, whose real name is Keith McCurdy.

The celebrity artist – who has inked various stars including Justin Bieber, Cara Delevingne and Jourdan Dunn – shared a photo of Rita lying down in the comfort of her hotel room, about to go under the needle.

While Summer singer Calvin, 30, announced the end of his relationship with Rita on Twitter, the blonde beauty did not immediately respond to his post. "To address speculation - myself and Rita ended our relationship some time ago," he wrote. "She is a beautiful, talented woman & I wish her all the best." Recent reports have suggested that this was the first time Rita had heard of their split.

"I don't usually address speculation but I've had an incredible time w Calvin, & I will treasure the memories," she posted, breaking her silence for the first time. "I've moved on from this topic so I hope people will respect that and do the same," she added. Rita, who has previously admitted that Calvin "got something out of [her] that [she] never thought [she] had. Yes, like falling in love," started dating the DJ in May 2013. It is thought the couple started to drift a few months ago when Calvin was seen partying with other women.
