Harry Styles’ tattoo artist speaks out
One Direction’s Harry Styles is adding to his collection of ink. The teen heartthrob’s new tattoo caught fans' attention in Kent over the weekend, as the boy band filmed a new wet and wild video for their single, “Live while We’re Young”. Harry got a little too wet and wild, accidentally debuting the fresh body art before it is even close to being finished. Words—or were they numbers—showed through the soggy tee shirt plastered to his body. He meant to wait, but his stylist says he doesn’t care.
“I’m doing him a half sleeve,” his tattoo artist, Kevin Paul recently said and Daily Mail reports. A half sleeve? That means all the way to the elbow. So far, the singer has what looks like one large-font word, which appeared to onlookers to be sitting atop Harry Styles’ collarbone.
Not so, says Kevin Paul. The One Direction star’s new ink is actually on his arm. “There's nothing on his collarbone, it's at the top of the arm to begin the sleeve.” Well, it was always hard to see clearly through a wet tee shirt.
“We’re doing that now,” Paul goes on, “so over the next week or two I’m gonna draw that up, send him the pictures over, and then I’ll go back down and start it up.” Okay, that’s clear enough.
Harry Styles already has a number of tattoos, which are said to commemorate major events in his life. The start of One Direction? His X-Factor appearance? Fans will just have to wait and see.
