Our jaws definitely dropped to the floor when we saw Ed Sheeran's new lion tattoo. The singer shared a pretty intense photo of his work-in-progress ink: a colorful design that's featured front and center on his chest.
Ed read through fan comments and noticed that everyone was freaking out about his new design, and took to Twitter to express his confusion about the "kerfuffle" surrounding his latest tattoo.
All this kerfuffle over a tattoo. If it was black and white saying a clever phrase in a language I can't speak no one would've said anything— Ed Sheeran (@edsheeran) August 12, 2015
The singer explained he doesn't get why the colorful design is so shocking, considering he has tons of other tattoos.
It's not the first weird tattoo I've got and it won't be the last, but I like all of them. I'm also eating a bowl of pasta now so byeziez x— Ed Sheeran (@edsheeran) August 12, 2015
He did a great job shutting out the haters, but most of us are genuinely just recovering from the shock of seeing such a bold design, but know we'll eventually think his chestpiece is as iconic as he is.
