We decided it was time to appreciate the king of tattoos — Louis Tomlinson. The One Direction member has a total of 39 ink designs — yeah, you heard us right, 39 — and they’re honestly pretty epic. From the giant “It is what it is” tattoo sprawled across his chest to the small, intricate designs that he’s got inked all over his arms, they’re definitely a huge part of him.
We’ve gone ahead and created a complete guide to the “Back To You” crooner’s 39 tats and their meanings, and you might be a little surprised to find out what some of them stand for. Our personal favorite is probably the adorable tribute that the singer got for his One Direction bandmates. Or it might be the matching ink design that they all got together! So cute.
Scroll through our gallery to see all of Louis’ tattoos and to find out the meaning behind each and every one.
