In reality, the new ink was done to commemorate his three sold out shows at London’s Wembley Stadium — England’s national football team has a lion as its logo, you see - and if you think that's crazy, wait till you hear his original idea. Sheeran told the BBC a little while back: "Originally I was going to get the floor plan tattooed on my side, but that seemed a bit ridiculous". You think?
The full color piece spans across the singer's chest and comes courtesy of celeb tattoo artist Kevin Paul. Like the total boss that he is, Sheeran also made time to hang out with Paul’s kids and played Legos with them following the session. Oh, and he posed for some photos, too.
Now, here's the new tattoo -- we should point out it's only half done.
