Ed Sheeran doesn't understand the recent "kerfuffle" over his new "weird" tattoo. The singer shared a photo of his lion-emblazoned chest, resulting in much commentary over his ink. He then defended his body art in a series of tweets:
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— Ed Sheeran (@edsheeran) August 12, 2015
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— Ed Sheeran (@edsheeran) August 12, 2015
Just in case you didn't believe his bit about eating a bowl of pasta, he uploaded a photo of his saucy creation.
