Discussing her desire to add permanent designs to her body, Ulrika explained to The Sun, ‘It’s an instinct, an intuition. It’s about feeling the desire to mark your body with something that not only lets others know who you are and what you stand for, it’s a little “party”. ‘
She also received four new inks in a three-hour session in 2020. Her new designs include a bulldog sitting in an apron pocket on her arm – signaling her love for the dog breed and her passion for cooking.
The star also has the words ‘let’s play’ on her stomach, a Leo symbol on her finger and a line on her arm.
It comes after Ulrika said on Friday that she wished she had spoken out and worked with domestic violence charities after being attacked by ex Stan Collymore.

The TV host also candidly revealed that when she was ‘thrown to the ground’ of a Scottish pub in Paris in 1998 and kicked in the back of the head, it was ‘the third time in her life that a man had raised his hand’ to her. .
Write in her column for The sun, the star explained that she had reflected on her own experiences after being “ deeply shocked ” by Mel B’s poignant performance in a recent Women’s Aid video.
Ulrika said, “By the time I was thrown to the ground 23 years ago, I’m ashamed to say it was the third time in my life that a man raised his hand to me.”
She explained that the first time she was hit was when she was just 19 years old, after a friend accused her of ‘flirting’ with his pals.

The star went on to say it wasn’t the violence that “ damaged her the most, ” adding: “ Bruises and broken bones heal. It’s the psychological damage that continues. ‘
Ulrika also wrote that it is ‘never as easy’ as running away from an act of violence, as the eruption often comes after an accumulation of other things, saying that ‘coercion’ was not spoken about 23 years ago.
She added that she never understood that relationship behaviors, such as being isolated from friends, turned her from being a confident person to a “ nervous, paranoid wreck. ”
And reflecting on her decision not to speak out at the time and work with charities, Ulrika wrote: ‘I’m sorry now … I wish I had drawn attention to the fact that abuse comes in so many different forms and not just the physical punishment. . ‘

Ulrika also explained how she thinks she “ wouldn’t write this today ” if there had been no camera crew in the bar at the time of her attack.
The Swedish star was punched and kicked in the head by her then-boyfriend in a vicious attack in a Parisian bar in 1998.
The former couple had been together for 18 months when footballer Collymore said he was taunted by hundreds of Scottish fans when he entered a bar during the 1998 World Cup in France.
As he got in, he saw Ulrika, wearing a Scottish shirt, pulling pints behind the bar and warning her that anyone could jump across the bar to her.
After becoming enraged, he dragged her to the ground and kicked her in the head three times before being dragged away. Ulrika has previously said that the ‘malicious bully’ then went back to their hotel room and cut up her clothes and belongings.

Ulrika’s comments come after Spice Girl Mel B appeared in a Women’s Aid video, beaten and covered in fake bruises as she tried to flee an abusive partner.
The clip shows her wearing makeup to mimic a bloody face and bruises while being dragged around the room and spanked by her partner.
While the video shows that the couple’s relationship is the picture of happiness for those around them, behind closed doors she is terrified of her partner’s violent behavior.
The clip ends with a bloodied Mel dramatically fleeing her home after her partner leaves, desperate to escape his abusive behavior.
