It's high summer and we can't get enough of celebrity holiday pics - including these latest gorgeous snaps from British sweetheart Cheryl Cole, who took the exotic opportunity to show off her new tattoo.

Adding a picture of herself trekking across a rocky outback, Cheryl poses with her back to the camera, tossing a Stetson hat over her shoulders with her lower back exposed to reveal her newest tattoo design - a large entwined rose design that she first revealed on her reunion tour with Girls Aloud. With stacks of tribal bangles and windswept hair, Cheryl looked ever the sun-soaked queen, captioning the portrait, "#DesertLife".

The Girls Aloud singer then took to Instagram to share some tranquil shots of herself taking a dip in a "breath taking" infinity pool across a dramatic holiday backdrop - with reports suggesting that her vacation destination of choice is in Los Angeles, where Victoria Beckham also recently enjoyed some time off to hike and soak up the sun.
