Sinead O’Connor displayed the initials “B” and “Q” on her cheeks while onstage at Bestival music festival.
It appears the initials stand for Brendan Quinlan, a mystery man Sinead O’Connor, 46, alludes to on her website when vaguely discussing her new tattoos.
Written in red calligraphy, Sinead O’Connor showed them off as she performed at the 10th anniversary of Rob Da Bank’s music festival, in the Big Top on Friday night.

On her website, Sinead O’Connor wrote: “It’s what it is … un ange passé 😉 There’s a bottle of Agent Provocateur in someone’s room that belongs to me.”
Using the French phrase for “an awkward silence” does nothing to make the tattoo’s meaning more clear, but the Irish Sun claims the inkings were done after a falling out with a man, reportedly bearing those initials.
Earlier this year, at Glastonbury, Sinead O’Connor debuted another new addition to her tattoo collection – a tribute to her Rastafri beliefs on her right hand.
The design features the lyrics “The Lion of Judah shall break every chain”, from Bob Marley’s track Lion Of Judah.
In swirling script, the tattoo takes up the majority of the back of Sinead O’Connor’s hand.
Sinead O’Connor is in the beginning stages of her menopause – the period in her life when her menstrual period ceases for good.
And while most women approaching their middle age associate it with hot flushes and a feeling of dread as it signals them getting older.
This is clearly not the case for Sinead O’Connor, who quite simply can’t wait to enter this latest stage in her life.
Sinead O’Connor, 45, who has four children from previous relationships, took to Twitter this week to reveal the personal information to her devotees.
The Irish singer wrote: “I think I’ve started menopause!!! Am SO excited!! Can’t WAIT for the first hot flush!!”

The controversial singer recently claimed she has grown more open-minded as she has gotten older and wants to bare all for Playboy before she dies.
Sinead O’Connor said: “There’s so much I wouldn’t liked to do when I was younger and I was too miserable and Irish.
“A Playboy shoot is on my bucket list. And I like the idea of doing some interview in weird sex gear, talking about something really serious. The economy!
“You can talk about serious issues while you’re b****ck naked. On all fours in your dog collar!”
Earlier this year she was forced to pull out of her tour as a result of her “bipolar disorder”.
Sinead O’Connor wrote on her website at the time: “With enormous regret I must announce that I have to cancel all touring for the year as am very unwell due to bipolar disorder.
“As you all know I had a very serious breakdown between December and March and I had been advised by my doctor not to go on tour but didn’t want to <<fail>> or let anyone down as the tour was already booked to coincide with album release.”
Sinead O’Connor released her latest album How About I Be Me (And You Be You) in February, which was met with praise from critics.
