The ginger singer went to Instagram to show off his latest piece of art...and it wasn't a song. In the selfie, he's seen laying on his back showing off a massive lion tattoo on his chest. It took seven hours of pain to get the job done. Yikes!
Pretty amazing, right? We can't help but think that the lion kind of looks like Eddie...you know, with the crazy, red hair and all. Perhaps it's some kind of symbol or tribute to himself? Maybe it's a "pussycat" for a reason. There are reports he's dating Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger. We dig.
This won't be the last piece we see on him, either. The "Thinking Out Loud" crooner reportedly plans to get his entire upper-body covered, leaving just his face, neck and hands free of ink.
"Ed is nowhere near done. There are going to be even bigger tattoos in the next few months." said tattooist Kevin Paul, who has also inked One Direction's Harry Styles.
"He's going to have his entire back covered, and then across his ribs. It'll be incredible," he said, according to the Daily Mirror.
