We think Ed Sheeran should stop playing with our emotions: His lion tattoo is REAL.
According to the *Thinking Out Loud *singer, he only had to cover it up for a TV show.
Ultimate prankster Ed got a lion tattoo inked on his chest two weeks ago, he then posted a picture to his Instagram showing it had disappeared and now it's back again. Ha. Ha. Such a funny man, Ed.
The 24-year-old revealed the news on his Insta, where he captioned the picture: "Only joking, covered it up for a TV show didn't I."
Yesterday, he showed off his bare, ink-free chest, alongside the caption: "Was only joking about the lion." You had us fooled, Ed.
Earlier this month, Ed first posted a picture of a half-finished lion tattoo emblazoned on his chest, which is meant to honour the England football team's mascot.
After posting that it had gone, he said the news of the tattoo had "always just been an elaborate prank".
His tattoo artist, Kevin Paul, says there’s much more work to be done on the tatt and on many others.
The Derby tattoist has become recognised as a tattoo artist to the stars, having also worked on Dappy, One Direction's Harry Styles and Ray Quinn.
