Harry Styles, the imaginary husband of many a teenage fanatic, has unveiled a lovely new tattoo that he got etched into his skin in January, bringing his total up to 41 according to this fan blog. He's only 19! At this rate he'll just be a black and blue blob by the time he's 30. He's already a longstanding member of the Holy Moly Shit Celebrity Tattoo Club.
Of course, the Directioners have a lot to say on the matter. Some of them think the tattoo is excellent, while some of them live up to the Mad Directioner standard by reaching out to him to tell him how awful his new ink is:
We're sure he's utterly devastated.
To be honest, it's probably the best he's actually got: that big shit ship on his arm still looks like a manky bruise and his various wordy ones ('Things I Can', 'Things I Can't', 'Might As Well') look like the scribblings of an idiot child. This moth or butterfly or whatever, at least it's actually pretty nicely done, and by an artist who clearly knows what they're doing. That artist is Liam Sparkes, and we'd hate to be manning the phone at his parlour today.
The announcement of Harry's new tattoo led the One Directionses to put out an open call for fan tattoo submissions for their upcoming 3D film:
"Have a real #1D tattoo? Show us! Submit a 90 sec YouTube video to [email protected] and show us why you should be in the @1D3Dmovie!"
Hahaha! Excellent, guys! Except that 99.9% of Directioners are under the legal age for tattoing. Doy! They deleted the Tweet, but only after 6,000 retweets. Their spokesman Simon Jones said:
"This tweet was posted in error and has now been removed. One Direction do not want to encourage any of their fans to get 1D tattoos."
Imagine getting a One Direction tattoo, eh? Madness. Of course, we don't understand that, mainly because the Harry Styles tattoo Tweet we identified with most this morning was this one:
Not good, dude. Not good.
