‘I’ve wanted a dinosaur for a while!’ Tom Fletcher reveals new triceratops tattoo inspired by I’m A Celeb winning wife Giovanna and their three children
McFly star Tom Fletcher showed off a new tattoo on Tuesday, jointly inspired by his three children and wife Giovanna’s triumphant appearance on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!
The musician took a break from patenting duties while paying a visit to London based tattoo artist Nouvelle Rita, where he sat for an intricate dinosaur design with a very special meaning.
Taking to Instagram with a close up of the fresh inking on his upper right bicep, Tom, 35, revealed the detailed triceratops drew inspiration from the number three – an important numeral to both himself and his wife.

Captioning the images, he wrote: ‘Rawr! Today was the first day I’ve had to myself since @mrsgifletcher went to Wales over a month ago so I visited the incredibly talented and lovely @nouvellerita for a little me time.
‘I’ve wanted a dinosaur for a while so with “tri” obviously meaning three and us having three kids, a triceratops with its three horns felt right (plus Gi’s @imacelebrity number was 03 too!).
‘So, here she is, ready to give me the strength of a dinosaur…or maybe just look super awesome. Thanks @nouvellerita for doing this incredible work of art while a caught up on some sleep!’

Tom – who raises sons Buzz, six, Buddy, four, and Max, two, with Giovanna – watched from home as his wife was named Queen of the Castle during Friday’s finale I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!
Giovanna has since admitted that her win is going to take a while ‘to digest’ and that she is still waking up in the middle of the night wondering where she is after spending three weeks in the north Wales camp.
‘It all feels so surreal, I feel like I’ve been on a nice little camping trip with some random friends that I’ve made,’ she said during an appearance on breakfast show Lorraine. ‘Turns out we were making a TV show, who knew!’
Clever: Tom explained that tri means three – the number used to vote for Giovanna during her time on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!
Talking about adapting to family life since winning the show, she added: ‘They couldn’t wait to talk to me and tell me about it when I got back. They wanted me to watch bits of it and tell them things I’ve done.
‘They actually thought that maybe we would all be moving into the castle now that I’m the queen and they are princes. I told them, I’ve had to break it to them that we are not getting the castle, that’s not part of the deal!’
Giovanna also admitted that despite there being a ‘lovely moment’ when they were reunited, the ‘fighting and tantrums’ have now resumed after husband Tom struggled with their bedtime routine during her absence.
She joked: ‘It’s back to normal now. There was a lovely moment with kisses and cuddles and all of that, and it doesn’t take long before fighting and tantrums!’
Magic number: The musician admitted the number has a similar significance closer to home, with the couple parents to three children – sons Buzz, Buddy and Max
