Cher Lloyd not only has "The X Factor," but she's also got a ton of tattoos!

The UK singer covers the August issue of Inked Magazine, where she shows off her massive collection of body ink.

Posing on the beach and on the hoods of a few classic cars, the 19-year-old puts both her body and the art covering it on display -- and opens up about her first tattoo.

"I was actually at school and had a lunch break so my mom took me to get a tattoo at a local artist’s house and then I went straight back," she says of getting a music note on her hand when she was just 16.

"At the time I still hadn’t been on [X Factor] and the tattoo artist said to me that people wouldn’t employ me because I had a tattoo on my hand," she says.

But that didn't stop her. 

"I had this crazy thought in my head that I wasn’t going to do anything but be a performer anyway," she adds ... and she was right!

Since then she's gotten a Dia de Los Muertos skull, a birdcage, the lyrics to "You Are My Sunshine," butterflies, a bow on one of her fingers and many more.

Cher's issue of Inked Magazine is on newsstands now.
