Singer Ed Sheeran has a lot of tattoos, but the one dedicated to Taylor Swift is closest to his heart.

In honor of his touring partner, the singer-songwriter got a new tattoo on his arm of Swift’s album title Red.

“The majority of Ed’s tattoos are all personal and all have meaning to his life at that moment,” tattoo artist Kevin Paul told Celebuzz of his latest work of art. “The single just came out that he did on the album, and he’s very good friends with Taylor.”

The British-born 21-year-old put some serious thought into his new ink since releasing his collaborative tune with the blonde beauty, “Everything Has Changed”.

According to Paul — who has also inked such stars as One Direction’s Harry Styles and members of the band Snow Patrol — Swift, 22, was flattered that Sheeran made his mark.

The tattoo artist, who’se been close to Sheeran’s for years, told Celebuzz Swift had no clue that Sheeran planned such a permanent sign of his friendship with the country crooner, who’s fourth album just sold 1.2 million copies in one week.

“They’re very close friends, so I think there were personal reasons for him [to get the Red tattoo]. I think a bit of thought went into it.”

Sheeran is set to tour with Swift next March, and just last week invited Paul to come along — and he can’t wait to work his tattoo magic on Swift, should she decide to get inked.

“I don’t know what she would have done, but I would love to tattoo her!” admitted Paul. “From what I’ve been told she is a really nice girl.”
