Jessica Alba shows off bold new floral tattoo (12 PICS)

The real deal? Jessica Alba stepped out earlier today in Los Angeles, showing off what appeared to be a new tattoo of roses on her upper arm

At first glance, it looked like Jessica Alba had opted for a rather bold new tattoo, when she showed off a sizeable new inking on her forearm today.

But it has been revealed that the 30-year-old star's new floral inking is only temporary.

According to Us Weekly, Jessica's body art is for her role in new movie A.C.O.D.

'A local tattoo artist in Atlanta did it on her,' a source told Us magazine. 'Jessica thinks it's pretty tough.'

And the star certainly seemed proud of the new inking, revealing the sizeable black and white rose design today when she took her denim jacket off during a trip to the local park in Los Angeles. 

She wore a white T-shirt and patterned blue a scarf, with some bright sky blue jeans. 
Jessica has been busy filming the movie in Atlanta, alongside Jane Lynch, Adam Scott and Mary Elizabeth Winstead.

The star does indeed have some real tattoos, sporting the word 'Padma' (Sanskrit for lotus flower) on her wrist and a bow on her lower back, according to website TooFab.

Striking: The actress showed off the tattoo as she waved to a friend across the park
Her hair was braided to the side and aviator sunglasses completed the look as she pushed her seven-month-old daughter Haven along in a pushchair.

She was joined by husband Cash Warren, baby daughter Haven, and  three-and-a-half year old Honor in the Los Angeles sunshine.

The family grabbed some lunch together before having some fun in the park, with the proud mother picking little Haven up and cradling her in her arms.

The cute youngster sported a floppy blue sun hat and dusky pink dress and pink tights. 

Little Honor seemed keen to help her mother look after her little sister and stood  alongside the pushchair with a friend at one point.

Jessica also helped her eldest daughter change her shoes for some more practical playtime boots.

The Fantastic Four star recently spoke about her family life, revealing that she is the disciplinarian in the household.

She told Parenting magazine: 'Cash is a super dad. If I'm with Haven, he'll make Honor's lunch or take her to the park. 

'They see movies or draw together - she'll even watch sports with him.

'I'm the disciplinarian. I think it's because I was kind of a naughty kid myself - I'd push my parents' buttons and test them to see how much I could get away with.'
