Ed Sheeran has over 60 tattoos, which include everything from a huge lion inked across his chest to a teddy bear. And while they all likely have very personal meanings for the singer, he just revealed that the latest addition to his body art collection — inscribed by actress Saoirse Ronan — is extra special.
At a recent concert, Sheeran took a break from his set to share a funny story with his fans: Ronan was planning on inking his arm with the title of his latest song title, “Galway Girl.” But when the time came for her to spell out the word “Girl,” she flubbed and wrote “Grill” instead.
“When we were filming it I meant to get a tattoo of her handwriting saying “Galway Girl” and it’s kind of point of view and I get the tattoo. It actually says Galway Grill. Like full on, full on she really took the piss out of me with this one. It actually says Galway Grill. G-r-i-l-l. I thought I’d tell you that — I haven’t told anyone that yet.”
And while this permanent typo might seem like a nightmare for some, the tattoo aficionado added that he’s not mad about her likely intentional — and hilarious — spelling error. “I’m actually kind of proud of her,” he said. “It’s the kind of thing that I would do.”
