Pop beauty Britney Spears has topped an online poll to find the sexiest babe with body art.

The I'M A SLAVE 4 U singer - who has a tattoo of an angel on her lower back - beat off stiff competition from rival Christina Aguilera and OSCAR-winning actress Halle Berry to claim the title.

And relationship experts at the website for British magazine LOADED now believe the majority of men prefer a small amount of body art on their women.

A website spokesperson says, "Britney's the undisputed queen of the body art babes.

"As far as body decoration is concerned, her tattoos add significantly to her sexuality - there's not too little and not too much."

The top ten tattooed ladies are:

1. BRITNEY SPEARS

2. CHRISTINA AGUILERA

3. HALLE BERRY

4. Alyssa Milano

5. Angelina Jolie

6. Pamela Anderson

7. SARA MICHELLE GELLAR

8. Pink

9. Drew Barrymore

10. Geri Halliwell
