Lady Gaga is "flattered" fans choose to have tattoos of her.
The "Poker Face" singer - who is known for her outrageous fashion choices and skimpy outfits - is delighted many of her admirers are prepared to permanently ink their skin to show their devotion to her.
She said: "This fan got this amazing tattoo on his arm, this massive Lady Gaga tattoo that was very intricate and very detailed and in it I was wearing this crystal outfit - but this thing was like an art piece. I was so flattered because tattoos are for life."
Lady GaGa is confident she is one of only a handful of stars whose fans are prepared to put themselves through physical pain.
She explained: "I should imagine that most pop stars don't experience that kind of gesture. I mean, it was a really big tattoo all the way down his arm. Pretty rock 'n' roll!"
The 23-year-old outrageous singer - who recently posed topless for a photo shoot in V Magazine - has also vowed to calm down her party girl lifestyle.
She said: "I'm not a go-out-and-party girl. I'm actually taking every minute I have to myself to write music and be in the studio right now."
