She’s a regular at the tattoo parlour, boasting numerous inkings.
So Kerry Katona ensured she was there for Lilly-Sue’s first visit, with the pair enjoying some mother-daughter bonding as they both hopped into the chair.
The 40-year-old singer seemed in great spirits as she filmed her 18-year-old daughter’s first tattoo experience for her YouTube channel.
Ink-redible! Kerry Katona took her lookalike daughter Lilly-Sue, 18, to get her first tattoo as they enjoyed a joint session at the parlour
Filming inside the Black & Even parlour in Tunbridge Wells, Kerry gushed to her daughter: ‘First tattoo. Oh my God, I can’t wait for this! Getting your first tattoo with me!’
The mother-of-five added: ‘I think it’s dead cool, I like that girl’, and cheered her on as she got a delicate flower inking on her ribcage.
Lilly-Sue stunned her mother as she barely winced while getting the inking – despite the ribcage being a notoriously painful spot as the skin is thin and directly over bones.

She then proudly displayed the artwork, three flowers with the saying ‘no rain, no flowers’ beneath, as she explained: ‘You can’t have the good without the bad.’
Despite watching her daughter’s calm session, Kerry struggled to keep her cool when she hopped in the chair herself, singing in a bid to distract from the pain.
Kerry was back in the parlour to finish working on a tattoo she started last month – a giant angel stretching from her wrist to her elbow – in tribute to her late aunt Angela – who passed away in March following a battle with alcoholism.

The former Atomic Kitten star also has her children’s names inked on various parts of her body.
Kerry, who is engaged to Ryan Mahoney, is proud mother to daughters Molly, 19, and Lilly-Sue with Brian McFadden, Heidi, 13, and Max, 12, with Mark Croft, and seven-year-old DJ with the late George Kay.
Molly and Lilly have their names etched on her wrists, DJ is behind her right ear and she has an elaborate back piece bearing the names of Heidi and Maxwell.
Last year, she underwent laser surgery to have the letter ‘G’ – a tribute to her late husband George Kay – removed from her ring finger.
She also has a G behind her ear and the pair had matching rose tattoos on their shoulder before George’s death from a cocaine overdose in 2019.

Meanwhile, Kerry’s parlour visit comes after her explosive row with Tessa Hartmann about padded bikinis for girls as young as nine.
The singer declared that she was ‘gobsmacked’ and thought the swimwear which ‘sexualised children’ was like ‘dangling a carrot in front of a paedophile’ during the heated chat on Wednesday’s edition of Good Morning Britain.
Tallia Storm’s mother Tessa, 51, also engaged in the debate, which soon descended into chaos, saying the bikinis provide some ‘modesty’ before taking aim at Kerry’s OnlyFans page and claiming the singer’s ‘kids take pictures of her naked’.

Speaking about the swimwear, Kerry said: ‘I’m really gobsmacked I expect to see my nine-year-old in a two-piece with Frozen or maybe Trolls, putting them in a padded bikini means they’re going to be concerned about their body…
‘Children need to be children and that’s it, are we going to get padded shorts for little boys now are we? The world’s gone mad.’
However Real Housewives Of Jersey star Tessa then tried to argue that she thinks girls would ‘love’ the items and ‘prefer’ padded bikinis as it provides some modesty.

The radio host said: ‘Well look, first of all I have worked in fashion for 25 years and there’s a lot of sexualising of children before, but this isn’t padding it’s just foam…
‘For me, my girls [her two daughters Tessie and Tallia] would love this… this is a take on a very big Australian brand… children prefer this to hide this modesty… a nine-year-old is more on trend than a 15-year-old.’
The conversation then turned to whether the bikinis ‘sexualise’ children, with presenters Richard Madeley and Susanna Reid both agreeing that they do.
Mother-of-five Kerry replied, saying: ‘100 per cent, 100 percent.’

Tessa then brought OnlyFans into the debate, adding: ‘There are a lot of things out there that sexualises children, social media sites like OnlyFans, with a young girl who’s jumping in a pool is self-conscious then this will show of modesty…
‘I think this is a good thing for a body conscious young teenage girl, and the whole point of it is choice. If you don’t want to buy it, don’t buy it… you have a choice.
With furious Kerry jumping in to say: ‘First of all, OnlyFans is over 18, no one is putting that to a nine-year-old child.
‘Second of all, when I’m on holiday with my nine-year-old with strangers, I’m not going to have my children in a padded bikini top sexualising her… it’s like dangling a carrot in front of a paedophile.’
Tessa then said: ‘Your kids take pictures of you naked…’
Kerry hit back: ‘First of all my children do not take pictures naked, my children take pictures of me in a bikini, I don’t know what you’ve heard but you’re wrong….
‘Why would a nine year old child be googling topless pictures in the first place? What I do on an 18+ site is different.’

Later in the day Lilly-Sue jumped to her mother’s defence as she appeared on her Instagram Live to say : ‘All I’m gonna say is my mum, you spoke very well, made a very good point.
‘It was really sad to see that a grown woman, in a debate, couldn’t make a valid or solid point, so she had to compare the sexualisation of a nine-year-old to a 41-year-old woman.
‘I just think that’s really embarrassing. To be completely honest, it was a complete low blow, a shot, but we just want to say thank you’ for the free advertisement for OnlyFans. ‘
She then laughed: ‘So because of that there is a 10% discount to your subscriptions,’ before Kerry then took over.
