A TATTOO artist from Bournemouth is the latest contestant to enter the Love Island villa.

The newest contestant, Abigail Rawlings, 27, is originally from Beaconsfield and currently lives in Bournemouth. 

She entered the famous villa last night as part of a trio of new 'bombshells' on the ITV show. 

On Instagram, Abigail has 12,000 followers and counting - she's posted pictures in a range of local bars and restaurants including the Larder House, Cosy Club and  The Grasshopper in Parkstone.

Abigail dropped out of university to start her tattoo apprenticeship when she was 18 - something she says her mum was "livid" about. 

With plenty of tattoos of her own, she said "Most of my tattoos are done by other people but I’ve got a portrait of my dog on my leg which I did myself.

"I’ve got loads of little stamps on my other ankle of things which are memories of things that have happened in my life where I want to dedicate the moment."

The self-proclaimed 'relationship girl' has her eyes on islander Toby - who she's hoping to steal from Chloe, though she admits Teddy and Aaron are also her type. Though she said her celebrity crushes are Justin Bieber and Zac Efron.

Abigail's goal in life is to meet as many people as she can and make as many friendships and connections with people all over the world.

Love Island airs daily on ITV2 at 9pm - This year's series will run for eight weeks meaning that the show is expected to end on Monday 23 August.
