Ed Sheeran reveals the sweet tattoo he got in honour of his daughter Lyra

music news

Ed Sheeran has quite the tattoo collection. His colourful arms hold permanent illustrations of things like a ketchup bottle, a teddy bear and the animation Pingu.

But two of his recent additions are quite poignant to where the superstar is currently in his life.

The new dad has revealed that in hour of his new single and music video 'Bad Habits' he has tattooed some vampire teeth on his shoulder, and he has also added an orca onto his arm in honour of Antarctica and his daughter who is named Lyra Antarctica.

Antarctica holds a special place in the hearts of Ed and his wife Cherry. The reason for Lyra's middle name is that she was conceived during Ed & Cherry's trip to Antarctica.

He confessed: "I am completely covered in the weirdest, most colourful tattoos and that is the thing no one can get their head around, apart from my wife. Everyone says I look like a melted crayon."

"But I love them. I love that any time something random happens, I put it on my body."

That might not continue for much longer, though, as Ed has no space left on his chest and sides.

And he added: "In my twenties, I would sit for 18 hours and just blitz it.

"Now I’m like two hours in, ‘just do it in a month’ kinda thing.”
