Girls Aloud band member Sarah Harding is reportedly undergoing laser treatment to remove a tattoo. The news comes as the star is reported to be cultivating a new, more mature image ahead of launching a solo career. The removal of her ink is part of her image makeover.

A source explained: “She’s not suddenly changing who she is, she’s just growing up and is getting a more sophisticated ideal of style.

“Getting her hair cropped last year was part of that as is renovating her wardrobe, and now she’s decided that her tattoo has to go as well. It’s only small but she feels that it’s a symbol of the old Sarah. She also doesn’t want it limiting her acting and modelling choices in the future.”
