But before you start thinking Ed's showing his support for Cecil the Lion, the new ink is actually of the England football team's logo, which is his way of commemorating his sold-out shows at the legendary Wembley Stadium in London last month. Ed recently made history as the first artist to headline Wembley unaccompanied, taking to the stage with just his guitar.

Ed, of course, no stranger to tattoos. The "Thinking Out Loud" crooner is heavily inked on both arms, his artwork including such seemingly random things as a teddy bear, a Heinz ketchup bottle, and the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air logo.
