Chrissy Teigen has had John Legend's lyrics tattooed down her spine.

The Lip Sync Battle star paid a visit to tattoo artist Winter Stone aka Daniel Winter to have the title of Ooh Laa etched down her back, and documented the process in a video she shared to Instagram.

The three-minute clip largely features footage of the tattoo, but midway through, John asked his wife if she remembered the first time she heard the song, which features on his seventh studio album Bigger Love, but she didn't.

She said: "I don't remember! I remember the first time I heard All of Me, I remember the first time I heard...honestly, most of your songs. But not this one."

John replied: "I remember. It was in our bedroom. We had to test run it to make sure it worked. It worked.

"We actually played it on repeat the first time. It was a good conversation starter."

Winter Stone also shared a photo of Chrissy's tattoo tribute to her husband.

He wrote alongside the black and white image: "What a blessing to honor Chrissy with this ooh laa tattoo down her spine.

"John wrote this sexy song for her so naturally she should have it tattooed on her right?!!! And if you haven’t heard BIGGER LOVE John’s new album: listen it’s so good!(sic)"

Chrissy's new tattoo comes shortly after the 35-year-old star - who has Luna, four, and Miles, two, with husband John Legend - got a tattoo tribute to her late son Jack.

Last year the Sports Illustrated model took to social media to debut the inking on her wrist, the name Jack handwritten in cursive writing as a tribute to her late son after a tragic pregnancy loss last month.

Taking to Twitter, she shared the black and white snap of the tattoo, prompting fans to flood her notifications with their love and support for the model and her husband John Legend, who also share Luna, four, and Miles, two.

It comes after Chrissy revealed she was told she could have died during childbirth when she suffered her devastating pregnancy loss.

The 34-year-old model said: "I was previously on bed rest for over a month, just trying to get the little dude to 28 weeks, a 'safer' zone for the fetus. My doctors diagnosed me with partial placenta abruption. We monitored it very closely, hoping for things to heal and stop. In bed, I bled and bled, lightly but all day, changing my own diapers every couple of hours when the blood got uncomfortable to lay in. My bleeding was getting heavier and heavier. The fluid around Jack had become very low - he was barely able to float around. At some points, I swore it was so low I could lay on my back and feel his arms and legs from outside my belly."

The Chrissy’s Court star was then given the devastating news that Jack "wouldn’t survive", as doctors warned her that if she carried on bleeding, there was a chance she could lose her own life as well.

She added: "After a couple nights at the hospital, my doctor told me exactly what I knew was coming - it was time to say goodbye. He just wouldn’t survive this, and if it went on any longer, I might not either. We had tried bags and bags of blood transfusions, every single one going right through me like we hadn’t done anything at all. Late one night, I was told it would be time to let go in the morning. I cried a little at first, then went into full-blown convulsions of snot and tears, my breath not able to catch up with my own incredibly deep sadness. Even as I write this now, I can feel the pain all over again. Oxygen was placed over my nose and mouth, and that was the first picture you saw. Utter and complete sadness."
