The N-Dubz rapper has always been a fan of body art.

Celebrity Big Brother star Dappy has a new additional to his tattoo collection this week.

The N-Dubz front man has had a hashtag '#' tattooed onto his face.

Sharing his new art work with fans on Twitter, @TheDappy, the 26 year old wrote: 

But according to Twitter bosses the symbol, which is now permanently beneath Dappy's right eye, may soon be a thing of the past.

Vivian Schiller, Head of News at Twitter, told the MailOnline: 'There's a lot of creative thinking going on around how to make Twitter more and more intuitive. Watch this space.'

As bosses of the social network begin plans to conceal 'the scaffolding of Twitter' the symbol, which ties conversations on the same topics together, may disappear within the next year.

It seems Dappy's latest attempt to be a trend-setter may have failed him, with a number of Twitter users taking to their feeds to mock the star.

One user Michael Hogan (@michaelhogan) wrote: 'Dappy's hashtag tattoo looks like one of those scrapes/scars that baddies used to have in the Beano.'

Whilst another found humour in his new ink, Ciara (@AlexiaChungWan) said: 'In your darkest hour, just remember...Dappy has a hashtag tattoo on his face.'

And Franca (@FrancasTweets) said: 'Dear God Almighty, please let the hashtag tattoo Dappy has had done be in biro, before his mother sees it.'
