Ed Sheeran already has many tattoos on his body, but this latest one could be called "the mane event." Yesterday, the singer shared a selfie with his fans on Instagram showing off the giant, colorful lion he had tattooed on his chest.

The lion is meant to commemorate Sheeran's three sold-out shows at Wembley Stadium in July. However, the big cat wasn't Sheeran's first choice to mark his career milestone. "Originally I was going to get the floor plan tattooed on my side, but that seemed a bit ridiculous," he told the BBC. Instead he chose the lion -- the logo of the England national football team team, whose home stadium is Wembley.

Sheeran also tweeted his thanks to tattoo artist Kevin Paul. "Lion is courtesy of @kp_est78, who puts up with me complaining about the pain," Sheeran tweeted.
