Harry isn't afraid of needles
The singer has had lucky gambling number 17 Black – which is used by James Bond in the 007 films – inked on his collarbone and it was clearly visible through his soaking wet T-shirt after he jumped into a paddling pool.
‘Harry is getting really into tattoos – he’s had numerous tatts over the past few months,’ says a source.
‘Some have deep meanings, while he just likes the design of others.’
Harry, 18, already has 3 etchings on his left arm – the outline of a star, the Temper Trap lyric ‘won’t stop till we surrender…’ scrawled in red and a tiny letter A in tribute to his mother Anne Cox.
The brave star is now said to be planning to get his arm covered in body art with a David Beckham-style sleeve.
‘The band’s management don’t seem to mind,’ the source tells The Sun.
‘His potential mother-in-law might, though.’
