Frankie And The Heartstrings' singer Frankie Francis has had an Edwyn Collins self-portrait tattooed on his arm.

The frontman revealed the arm art to the world via the band's Twitter page, Twitter.com/frankiestrings.

The self-portrait by the ex-Orange Juice legend, now a solo artist, was made when he was recovering from a brain haemorrhage in 2005. Collins has produced the band's debut album, 'Hunger', out on February 21.

You can see the tattoo in the flesh when Frankie And The Heartstrings play a Shockwaves NME Awards Show at London's Heaven venue, also on February 21.

Collins also plays a Shockwaves NME Awards Show, at London's O2 Shepherd's Bush Empire, on February 26.
