Harry Styles got inked again and it’s only this weekend that it’s been reported. According to E! News the One Direction singer went to see tattoo artist Liam Sparkes in January. Sparkes had posted a photo of the 19-year-old’s chest with a butterfly design on his Flickr account on January 22.
A rep for One Direction confirms that the photo is of Harry.
The heartthrob has been gathering tattoos at a fast pace. They include birds, his sister’s name written in Hebrew, cities his band has performed in, crucifixes, one that reads 17Black and a ship.
The Metro UK says the butterfly image is largely recognized within the LGBT community as a trademark of the transgender community – representing transformation. Whether he knows that or not is in question.
Poor Harry. Last week he was hit in the crotch with a shoe during a One Direction gig in Glasgow. Rumors started buzzing that he wants to tighten up security and wants extra protection following his split from Taylor Swift.
The Daily Star said a source told them, “Harry is not joking, he’s taking the situation very seriously. He’s mentioned high-security cars like the ones used by military top brass, plus a convoy. He also feels there are Taylor Swift followers out there who may hold a grudge against him following their break-up.”
However the band’s rep says the story is ‘complete rubbish’.
