One Direction's Harry Styles Shows Off More Fresh Ink, Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne Get Tattooed Too (PHOTO)
The singer is now sporting fresh ink on his left wrist and both forearms. Alongside his small padlock, which was tattooed on by singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran, Styles now has two small zigzags, a fish skeleton and the figure "99p."
During an appearance on an Irish late night show this past week, the floppy-haired singer declined to say what the tats meant -- but bandmate Niall Horan quickly replied: "It’s a London thing."
What else did Styles -- and his bandmates -- have done?
Styles is also sporting a phrase on his left wrist that begins with the words, "I can't." Then, he has the words "Things I can" and "Thing's I can't" scribbled on both forearms. Those tats were reportedly done in Dublin this past week, reports The Daily Mail.showing off a few new tats on his upper left ribcage, including a pair of comedy and tragedy drama masks, a birdcage and the letters “SMCL.”
There’s some debate among One Direction fans as to the meaning behind “SMCL.” Some believe that the letters stand for “Smile more, cry later,” while other Directioners think the letters stand for Simon Cowell, who first signed the group in early 2011 after being formed on The X Factor.
Meanwhile, bandmate Louis Tomlinson also flashed some new body art alongside Styles, as he displayed a stick man on the inside of his right forearm.
As the 20-year-old previously announced on Twitter, he and fellow One Direction member Liam Payne also had tattoos done in Dublin. The pair had matching screws inked on their ankles to match ones that both Styles and Zayn Malik have already.
Now the only member of One Direction without any ink is Horan, who recently admitted to a pretty embarrassing tattoo mishap.
"So Me and Liam joined the crew yesterday and got two screw tattoo’s on our ankles, now we all have it except Niall! Come on @NiallOfficial."
