Nice Assets! Kate Moss Admits Lucian Freud Tattoo Could Be Worth 'Millions'

Supermodel Kate Moss reveals her tattoo by friend is worth a fortune


Her body has already made her a fortune, but now Kate Moss is adding millions to that value thanks to a tattoo on her lower back.

The supermodel revealed the tattoo of two birds was done by the late artist Lucian Freud.

The 38-year-old stunner told Vanity Fair magazine: "He told me about it when he was in the navy, when he was 19 or something, and he used to do all of the tattoos for the sailors. And I said, 'Oh my God, that's amazing.' And he went, 'I can do you one. What would you like? Would you like creatures of the animal kingdom?'

"I said I liked birds and he replied, 'I've done birds. I've got it in my book. And he pointed down at a painting of a chichen upside down in a bucket. And I said, 'No, I'm not having that.'

"And then he said, 'Maybe I should just do you.' And I thought, I'm not going to have a girl on my a***. So we decided to do a flock of birds.

"I mean, it's an original Freud. I wonder how much a collector would pay for that? A few million?

"If it all goes horribly wrong I could get a skin graft and sell it! It's probably the only one on skin that's still around, because when he was in the navy he was about 19. Can you imagine?"

The Rimmel model became good friends with the world renouned artist when he painted her nude oil portrait while she was pregnant with Lila Grace in 2002.

The painting was sold in 2005 to an anonymous bidder at an auction for £3.9 million.
