'Thinking Out Loud' singer Ed unveiled his new design this week as he was getting inked by celebrity tattooist Kevin Paul.
The tattoo, which is a large portrait of a lion's face on his chest, received a handful of mixed reviews.
Even Keane frontman Tom Chaplin aired his thoughts via Twitter, saying: "Please tell me this is a prank. Cos if it isn't, @edsheeran has a really bad picture of a lion on his chest FOREVER."
But taking to Twitter on Wednesday (12 August), Ed said: "All this kerfuffle over a tattoo. If it was black and white saying a clever phrase in a language I can't speak no one would've said anything.
"It's not the first weird tattoo I've got and it won't be the last, but I like all of them. I'm also eating a bowl of pasta now so byeziez x." [sic].
Well, there you have it. Ed likes his tattoo and he's planning to have a lot more too!
