Cher Lloyd is Inked magazine's cover girl for their August 2013 issue, and the British beauty is oozing pin-up sexiness. 

Wearing the same vintage bathing suit she rocked in her 'Oath' video, the songstress looks amazing as she shows off abs and slender legs sitting atop a cherry red convertible. Her inked-up arms are on full display, of course, and the wavy-haired brunette also told the mag she has "around 20" tattoos.

Lloyd also dished on her sophomore serving of songs, saying her next album will stray from her frothy roots and give a much more personal look at her as a person and as an artist.

"I feel like I’m taking a risk this time around because the previous album was kind of bubble-gum pop and we’re stepping away from that," she tells Inked. "It’s strange because when you listen to my first album, it sounds like I’m a typical pop star wearing princess dresses, but if you look at me I’m kind of on the street side. I’m free to curse whenever I want and express some grown-up situations [with this album], so I think it will be a bit of a shocker for people."

She also talked about her first tattoo and the bird tat she received in honor of her uncle, saying, "I thought there was something special about leaving the cage door open and having the bird fly out on the other side."

Lloyd also dished out some sound advice for youngsters hoping to get some permanent body ink, saying, "It’s up to an individual to choose when they want to get a tattoo -- and if you’re under the age... you should discuss it with your parents, like I did. My fans know I’m not untouchable. They can always take inspiration from me -- and that extends to my tattoos."
