Eddie Cibrian has reportedly banned Leann Rimes from getting anymore tattoos.

The 41-year-old actor wants his wife, who has eight inkings, to stop plastering her skin with permanent body art because he thinks it represents ''low-class.''

A source told America's OK! magazine: ''Eddie thinks it's low-class. She says they're feminine and each have meaning, but he thinks she's just copying her friends, who all have plenty of ink.''

However, the 'Can't Fight the Moonlight' singer claims she and her beau give each other ''sh*t'' all the time and they will show the fun side of their relationship in their new reality series for VH1.

LeAnn, 31, said previously: ''There's a lot of heart to it but there's also a lot of laughs. Eddie and I are very much that way in our relationship. We have a lot of humour between the two of us and give each other s**t a lot, so you see that.''

The couple met in controversial circumstances, as Eddie was married to reality star Brandi Glanville - with whom he has sons Mason, 10, and Jake, six - at the time, but LeAnn insists their day-to-day life is much less dramatic than people imagine.

She explained: ''I think people really think we take ourselves seriously. It's so opposite of that but no one ever gets to see it.

''Other than the reason of us wanting to work together and be home with the kids, why not have fun and poke fun at everything that's gone on for the last five years.''
