She left her on/off love interest Spencer Matthews reeling when she revealed she had a tattoo in honour of her latest love.

The couple have been reunited for the first time they enjoyed a whirlwind romance in Australia over Christmas.
After just a few weeks of dating, Caggie was so enamoured with Joel, she decided to tattoo his initial on her arm.
In the first episode of the current series of the E4 show, Caggie shocked Spencer when she told him she had moved on.
Been a long time: Caggie hadn't seen her boyfriend since mid-January
Just before her trip Down Under, the couple finally sealed their long-standing attraction by sleeping together on a pre-Christmas trip to Finland.
In the Christmas special, it looked like the pair were finally going to make a go of their romance.

But while she was in Australia with
their mutual friend Oliver Proudlock, Caggie had her head turned by Joel
and quickly forgot all about Spencer.
In the latest series, Spencer told Caggie how hurt he was that she had ignored his voicemails and text messages over Christmas.
During an awkward conversation, Caggie showed Spencer her tattoo, which read 'Sanatana Jiva J' written in script across her arm.
She explained: 'Its a Buddhist term – that which is eternal and never beginning… and J for Joel.'
Taken aback, Spencer said: 'I don't want to seem off, but its an obvious middle-finger to me. Its an odd thing to do in two weeks.'
Correcting him, Caggie said: 'It was a month actually…'

Spencer continued: 'Are we just mates If I'm being completely honest, the tattoo made me see a different side to you. I wouldn't do it to you.'
Reflecting on how things had changed between them, Caggie conceded: 'I didn't think I would do it either, but things have changed, clearly.'
Following the Joel revelation episode, Caggie was subjected to a string of abuse on Twitter, accusing her of being 'cruel' to Spencer.
At the time, she tweeted: 'My tattoo means 'never ending soul' and the J is for Joel, I'm happy… We're happy, So leave it out!'
But the playboy doesn't seem to be losing much sleep over her and can currently be seen pursuing his ex Louise Thompson on screen.
