Although we sorta like the new 'do as it reminds us of a little G.I. Jane action, some of the fans who sped down to "Body and Soul" to catch a peek of the pop star weren't having it.

Spears could be seen inside the tattoo parlor with her head fully exposed, but as she left the shop she was led by her bodyguard straight to a waiting SUV. Spears had her head covered with a hooded sweatshirt to hide her new noggin. The sidewalk outside the shop was filled with fans, onlookers and paparazzi. Some fans that were interviewed after Spears departed declared the new look less than flattering. - KABC

Meanwhile some inside the tattoo shop said that Spears seemed bummed out while she was there.“She seemed very distraught and disturbed. Um, she was very scatter-brained and wasn’t really answering many questions.”, Mary Hughes told KABC reporter Leslie Miller.

Britney got at least one tattoo -- a pair of lips for her wrist -- but Hughes hinted that she might have gotten more. We hope one says LAist.
