Ed Sheeran has proved he’s quite the joker.
Earlier this month Ed Sheeran caused a bit of a stir with fans after seemingly getting a huge new tattoo in the middle of his chest, a depiction of an incredible male lion right on his sternum. Ed apparently wanted to celebrate selling out Wembley Stadium three nights in a row.
The whole affair’s been rather confusing, thanks to Ed first previewing the fearsome animal ink and then seemingly hinting that he’d been trolling us all along.
Some news outlets and fans are taking this as proof that he faked the tattoo.
We are still over here thinking Ed is just messing with us and sharing an old pic of himself to trick us into thinking the lion tattoo never existed, but maybe it still does! The singer, who has-been romantically linked with Nicole Scherzinger, confessed to the gag when he published an image of his bare chest on Wednesday. But others are more skeptical.
“All I’m saying is it has taken me six hours so far to put it on his chest”, he told Now magazine. It would also explain why it looks like he’s wearing a paper garment of some kind. Or is this his back?? Could that be shading on his neck to make it look like the front?
