The Dublin-born star, who now lives in LA, is dating policeman Torray Scales, 24. The pair met at a nightclub six months ago and are planning to move in together.
Speaking to Closer magazine she revealed: “He was very sweet and asked me out for dinner. We’ve been inseparable ever since. He loves my body and the sexy outfits I wore for Dancing on Ice.”
The tattoo is so big it appears over the top of her bikini briefs as she poses for pictures. Sam won’t reveal what it’s of or what it means.
She said: “It’s between us – I had it done when I was in LA over Christmas.

The Who frontman Roger Daltrey has lent his support to the family of Amy Winehouse.
Speaking to Closer magazine Amy’s Dad Mitch revealed: “Roger phoned me yesterday and we talked about his experiences of drug addiction in his family, it’s a great support knowing people care.”
Amy has received offers of support from other celebrity pals including Sadie Frost and Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne. Amy and Kelly Osbourne are best friends, the family has offered her the use of a self-contained bungalow on their property at their sprawling mansion in Buckinghamshire.
Amy’s pal Pete Doherty also visited her in rehab. Mitch revealed: “I was upset because he’s not the ideal person to have around when someone’s got a drug issue. But I have to be honest; he was completely charming when I met him. He and Amy were sitting on the bed playing their guitars together and there were absolutely no drugs at all between them. “
Mitch believes Amy’s drug problems began last year when she got together with husband Blake Fielder-Civil, 25, who is in Pentonville prison awaiting trial for GBH and alleged trial fixing. Before getting together with Blake, Amy had told her dad she thought class A drugs were ‘for mugs’. He said: “He’s not entirely responsible, she’s got to take a portion of the responsibility, but it’s clear, it really kicked off when they got together.”
“It would be foolish for me to say he’s the ideal son in law. In an ideal world I’d have loved Amy to marry a doctor or a lawyer or something like that, but I don’t think that would happen with Amy.”
“I’ve come to learn a bit more about Blake and his background and to a certain extent he’s just as much of a victim as Amy. He had a problematic upbringing, he moved out of home at 16 and was homeless in London at 18. That’s why I do have sympathy for him.”
“Blake’s got the chance now to prove how much he really loves Amy by staying drug free. Their marriage can’t survive if they’re together on drugs. One or both will die, that’s all there is to it.
