Harry Styles’ New Tattoo Isn’t Exactly A Tramp Stamp, But It’s Pretty Close

I was pretty sure Harry Styles couldn’t confuse me with a tattoo any more than he already had with that gigantic moth creature on his chest, but that was before I saw his newest ink, of ferns across his abdomen. WTF?

Bear in mind this isn’t Justin Bieber we’re talking about, so we don’t have a brooding Instagram shot with a close-up of the new tattoo in it, but One Direction fans have pointed out that in a recent photo where Harry’s arms are over his head at the opening night of 1D‘s Where We Are Tour in Colombia, you can pretty clearly see two fronds? or feathers? sprouting outward on his stomach from just under his bellybutton. And when I say his stomach, I’m being pretty generous. It’s actually in solid happy trail territory, a zone I’d be much more comfortable calling ‘the abdomen’. If this thing was on his back instead of his front, it’d be a genuwine tramp stamp.

And there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that, but I think we should take a moment to talk, Harry, just you and me. What’s going on with you buddy? Did you just meet an emu and really hit it off? Big Forrest Gump fan? Or are you gonna start your own nursery? Did you just find out you were raised by plants? Is botany your new passion? Or did one of your Twitter fans get it right when they speculated that they’re ferns and they could mean one of eight things:

I need answers here, because that is a huge tattoo! And in an area that I can pretty much guarantee will stretch around a bit, once your metabolism slows down. So it must’ve been really important, right? C’mon man, just throw me a bone here. Do you want us to call you Ferngully now OR WHAT?

    His moth tattoo is realllllllly weird, but I do hope the fern is a confirmation of his secret love for Louis.

      Dare to dream!

    I’ve pretty much given up on trying to interpret any member of 1D’s tattoos…but I do agree with poor body placement. He was already muffin-topping at the concert due to his insistence on the tightest jeans possible.

    Maybe he just thought it looked cool. Sometimes people get tattoos because they’re like “WHOA THIS THING IS AESTHETICALLY PLEASING TO ME” and don’t need a deeper meaning. And since it’s their body, that’s totally their thing. Or there is a deeper meaning and he doesn’t want to share, because it’s for him, not everyone else.

    oh my god I am so protective of tattooed people it’s ridiculous

      Yeah that’s true. I’m just curious because he’s famous an they’re ALL over him, so I’m owning that.

    He really needs to stop marking up his damn body like this. His latest tattoo looks ridiculous and amateurish. Cut the crap Styles, you’re starting to look like an idiot who tries way too hard!

      Or maybe he just wants to do as he pleases with his own body considering
      it isn’t public property (which come as a shock to many).

    • Lara

      *may come

      I so agree with you. These look like a bunch of crap placed wierd on the body. I love the guy, & his tats make hm HARRY, but normally it looks bad/stupid. He doesnt know what he is doing really, he too young.
