Ed Sheeran was “only joking” about his ENORMOUS lion tattoo. WTF.

Look, it's gone!

Ed Sheeran lion tattoo fake

by Maria Vallahis |

We called it! We did call it! Unless this is *another *fake picture posted by Ed Sheeran - we don't know what to believe anymore.

Remember that HUGE lion tattoo Ed "got inked" on his chest? Well, it's FAKE. A big, fat, FAKE. We can't say we're not relieved actually, Ed.

"Was only joking about the lion," wrote the singer next to his snap revealing the lion has disappeared.


Two weeks ago, the *Thinking Out Loud *singer posted a picture of his chest revealing his **"new" tattoo, which looked very artistic, but seemed to outrage fans with how ENORMOUSLY ridiculous it looked.

He had us fooled when he captioned his lion tatt snap: "Halfway and ouch."

And *poof* like magic, it's gone.

Now, the cheeky scamp has shared an image of his BARE chest, clean and ink-free.

The fake tatt.

Why, Ed? Why?

What do you think of Ed's fake tattoo? Should he get it now anyway?

10 Most hated celebrity tattoos

1. An ex partner's name...
1 of 10

The most commonly removed tattoo is an ex lover's name. This has been exemplified by many, many celebrities, but Katie Price is probably the most ridiculous.She literally had a cross put over her "Pete" ink dedicated to Peter Andre. Then eventualy covered it up with a flower. Probably the better option, eh?

2. Dolphins

Everybody loves dolphins, right? WRONG. David Cameron's wife, Samantha, has the second most hated tatt. #Don'tSaveTheDolphins

3. Misspelt tattoos

Typo tatts are the next most hated, ones like David Beckham's sanskrit number which is supposed to say "Victoria", but actually adds a rogue "h" for no reason. Oops.
