With a string of chart hits and a feisty image, Ke$ha is a role model to thousands of impressionable young girls.
But few parents would approve of their daughters wanting to follow in the footsteps of the singer after she got a tattoo inside her lip.
The American star, 25, had the provocative phrase 'suck it!' etched in black writing along her bottom lip during a late night tattoo session in Los Angeles.

Painful: Ke$ha tweeted a photo of her new lip tattoo
After going under the needle, the Tik Tok singer posted a photograph of her new artwork on her Instagram account for all to see.
The words 'suck it!' is likely used by Ke$ha whenever she receives negative comments.
As well as being incredibly painful on the sensitive interior of the lip, Ke$ha's tattoo could be prone to infection because there is so much bacteria in the mouth.
She wrote: 'New tatt!!!'
Ke$ha had the tattoo at Alchemy Tattoo Parlour in Sunset Boulevard late on Tuesday night.
In the party mood: Ke$ha tweeted a photo of herself and tattoo artist Jule
Last year, she said she considered
herself a role model to her wide fanbase: 'People gravitate towards the
party girl thing but in my expression of myself, from the way I dress to
how I speak and act, I am trying to show that I want people to feel
they can be themselves.
'I grew up in Nashville, which is very religious and conservative and not at all open-minded.
'I want to encourage kids to be
themselves, feel free to express themselves and have their
eccentricities encouraged who have lyrics in music that can be
interpreted to have deeper meanings, but how deep can you dive into
“Brush my teeth with a bottle of Jack'
The lip etching brings her tattoo collection to a total of six.
She already has a tattoo of an anchor, skull and crossbones and a cross on her wrist.

The anchor was done when she was 18
when she 'snuck into Cuba' – as an American citizen she is generally not
allowed to travel to the Communist island.
Two of her tattoos are actually homemade using a safety pin and pen.
She told Details magazine: 'I had
just finished my record, so that night we got a little crazy, and we
thought it was a really good idea to give each other tattoos to
symbolise such a special event in my life. So he gave me a cross. Or one
could call it a t. Or an x.
'And then this is pretty embarrassing, but – it’s fading – my friend tattooed YEAH! on my foot.'
She also has a dollar sign on her hand.
