Ed Sheeran has replied to critics of his new tattoo.
The British singer, whose second album ‘X’ was already released last year, is well-known for his ink collection and shared a graphic of his latest work earlier this week. The lion on his chest is just half finished as outlined by Sheeran and was created to mark his three sell-out gigs at London’s Wembley Stadium in July. Check One.
Some people online were critical with the tattoo, however, noting specifically its size and colour. Sheeran was defiant though, tweeting about his insufficient interest in what others model of his choice in ink. “All this kerfuffle spanning a tattoo,” he tweeted. “If it had been black and white saying an ingenious phrase in the language I can’t speak nobody would’ve said anything.”
Thinking Out Loud
“It’s not the initial weird tattoo I’ve got and it also won’t be the final,” he added. “I as with any of them.” Just Thinking out loud.
Among other images, Sheeran has tattoos in the Heinz tomato ketchup logo, the Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air typography as well as a teddy bear, after his childhood nickname of ‘Teddy’.
Sheeran shared the subsequent image of his tattoo alongside the caption: “Halfway and ouch”.
