Cara Delevingne enlisted the help of her favourite tattoo artist Bang Bang NYC to etch a spooky pair of eyes onto the back of her neck.

Cara Delevingne has had a pair of eyes tattooed onto the back of her neck.

The 24-year-old star already boasts an impressive array of inkings, with the count last September (15) at 20. On Sunday (02Oct16), Cara debuted her latest addition when her favourite tattoo artist Bang Bang NYC shared a video of the design on his Instagram page.

The clip, which attracted more than 300,000 likes in just 24 hours, shows model-turned-actress Cara with her hair swept up into a bun to properly display the new design, with the eyes appearing to follow the camera as it moved around the room.

Fans were divided about what they thought of the new design, with some deeming it impressive while others argued it was too creepy.

Bang Bang is responsible for kicking Cara's tattoo obsession off back in 2013, when she went for her very first inking - a lion on her index finger.

Speaking to Grazia magazine previously about her decision to get the lion design, Cara explained: "I’m a Leo. It’s the first tattoo I got. I grew up being fearless in everything. I just used to climb anything. I lost that (sense of fearlessness) when I started modelling.

"When you work a lot and don’t really know what you want, you just do it because the work is there. I lost that inner fire, so I got the lion to bring that back in my mind."

And there is no area of Suicide Squad star Cara's body that is out of bounds when it comes to her tattoo collection. She also has designs on the soles of each feet - one reads "Made in England" while the other reads "Bacon".

Explaining the latter to The Cut, Cara said: "The tattoo was inspired by my love for bacon, obviously. I think of bacon every five seconds. It’s the meatiness. I love the salt. Bacon is love to me. Bacon will always love me back. It’s unconditional."
