Harry Styles’ Old Tattoos Reveal A Major Clue About His Mysterious New Thigh Ink

Did Harry continue his penchant for punny tats?

This week, the most critical and urgent matter for One Direction fans isn’t the misery of the band’s first group photo or the progress of their new songs. It’s what in the world Harry Styles’ perplexing new tattoo might be.

In a totally random and baffling debut, the 21-year-old’s new ink was spotted in a pic uploaded by Chelsea Handler on Saturday (April 18). The good news is, it’s prominently placed on Harry’s thigh, legitimizing our tendency to stare longingly at his legs. The bad news is, this is the only photo we have of it so far and it’s still totally unclear what the tat actually is.

Thankfully, Harry’s plethora of other tattoos might reveal a major hint about the new ink. That’s because the cheeky fella has a well-documented penchant for puns when it comes to his body art. Let’s take a look at the evidence:

  1. He has crosses on his chest — “cross my heart”
    Tumblr
  2. He has a birdcage on his ribs — “ribcage”
    Tumblr
  3. He has a butterfly on his stomach — “butterflies in your tummy”

  4. He has a heart on his arm — “wear your heart on your sleeve”

  5. He has nails on his bicep — “nail gun”

We told you: he’s a clever little one. Anyway, if Harry decided to continue this punny pattern, it’s safe to assume that his new ink would be some kind of play on words involving thighs or legs. After some brain-racking deliberation, here are some suitably random but entirely feasible possibilities we came up with:

  1. A tiger — “thigh of the tiger”
    Giphy
  2. An elevator — “thigh high” or “get a leg up”
    Giphy
  3. Orlando Bloom — “Legolas”
    Giphy
  4. A frying pan — “stir thigh”
    Giphy
  5. An arm — “arm and a leg”
    Tumblr
  6. This exercise contraption — “thigh master”

  7. Michelle Trachtenberg — “Harriet the Thigh”
    Tumblr
  8. A packet of string cheese— “hamstring”
  9. Sebastian from “The Little Mermaid” — crab leg
    Giphy
  10. A cup of tea — “thigh latte”
