Parks, zoos, pubs, tattoo parlors. They’re all just scenic backdrops for the latest chapter in the Next Great Transatlantic Love Story, better known as the highly photographed dating of Harry Styles and Taylor Swift. Back in the U.S.A., Olly Murs’ favorite couple continues their trend of picture-perfect outings—although the latter screams Harry’s idea, unless Taylor has some hidden ink we don’t know about. (Theory: The name of her most regrettable ex is inscribed around the belly button; that’s why she keeps it hidden all the time!) After celebrating her birthday in England last week, Harry joined up with Taylor on the West Coast and the two were spotted at the Shamrock tattoo parlor on Tuesday.
First Pink Floyd, and now Rush? We know how you might feel about the “boy band” label, Hazza, geeze. We also know that Harry and his 1D mates like to commemorate momentous occasions with a little ink. To what do we owe this most recent addition of a majestic ship?
Judging by the photos above, Taylor does not recoil in the presence of inked up greaseballs—at least not when cameras are present—and Harry is some sort of fan of the explorers. Maybe all time spent in the dirt for “I Knew You Were Trouble” has helped her open up to new experiences? But Hazza’s latest body art acquisition bears a striking resemblance to the ink Reeve Carney sported—in the exact same place—in the “Trouble” video. Examine his tatted up bicep below.
Is this more proof that “Trouble” was written about Harry after a brief fling earlier this year, or the suggestion that Hazza is trying to live up to Taylor’s lyrics as best he can? She can’t write a new song about you if you already embody one of her previous hits!
