The X Factor: Gone Wild With Tattoos

by sara salamat


x factor judges louis tomlinson and robbie williams showed their loyalty to the show by tattooing an 'x' on eachother... but let's just say it didn't go quite to plan.

posting the footage on his latest vlog on youtube, the two judges are seen giving each other tattoos on their downtime from the x factor. "i ain't got a steady hand by the way," louis apologies to robbie's wife, ayda field. "i'm sorry in advance." 

robbie shrugged off louis' worries telling him that he's happy with whatever the outcome of the tattoo was.  unluckily for tomlinson, robbie williams wasn't too skilled with the tattoo gun. the video shows tomlinson with pain written on his face shouting "dig deep why don't you, f---ing hell, rob."

it was apparent that robbie was apologetic for the tattoo, offering to have the tattoo artist next to them to finish the job, but louis refused, wanting the judge to finish the job.  

eventually, robbie gave up, and louis eased his guilt by assuring him that "...none of my tattoos are nice." we beg to differ! 

after the whole ordeal, louis went to show fellow x factor judge and mentor simon cowell. cowell was quick to show his disapproval and immediately asked: "what happened on that?" 

apart from the tattoo extravaganza, the two judges are about to be quite busy, being that they were assigned their category for the remainder of the show. louis had been given the boys group, simon the girls, robbie the groups, and ayda received the olders. 

x factor airs weekly, with the chair challenge starting on sunday, september 30th, only on itv.
