Alright Ed Sheeran, we're on to the game you're playing when it comes to this lion tattoo. We were fooled, yet again. The hoopla all began when the singer unveiled a large, vibrant tattoo of a lion on his chest.
It's definitely bigger than most of his other tattoos and he even found himself on the receiving end of some not-so-nice comments about his decision to add this design to his ink collection. But then, he told us he was only kidding, and the tattoo isn't real after all.
Now, he has gone back on that and revealed to us that the lion tattoo is in fact legit – and here to stay. Ed posted another followup pic on Instagram, showing us he just had it covered up with makeup because he was filming for a TV show.
So there we have it, the lion is permanent and is going on chill on Ed's chest forever. Case closed, mystery solved. We hope.
What do you think about Ed's trickery? Tell us in the comments below!
