It's remains unclear if Ed Sheeran's new lion tattoo is a tribute to Cecil, the beloved lion who was murdered by an American dentist in Zimbabwe in July.
Ed Sheeran is the path of getting a massive brand new lion tattoo on his chest and he revealed the unfinished artwork on his Instagram on Monday, August 10.
At the moment, the center of Sheeran’s chest, between his two nipples and extended from under his neck down to his rib cage, features a big, lifelike portrait of a lion’s face. It’s unclear what Sheeran plans to add to it. He captioned the Instagram photo, ''Halfway and ouch.''
One fan wrote, ''Yes honey you are my kinda guy.” Another simply exclaimed, “Wow,” while someone else declared, “Looks freaking amazing.''
Meanwhile, Sheeran’s new tattoo actually bears resemblance to Cecil, the beloved lion who was murdered by an American dentist in Zimbabwe last month, sparking outrage among celebrities. There’s no indication, though, that the British star was intending to pay tribute. And Sheeran, of course, has many other tattoos.
Sheeran has other tatts on his arms including the “RED” logo tattoo, in honor of his dear friend, Taylor Swift’s album.
