This afternoon Ed Sheeran shared a picture of this lion inking with his 4.5 million Instagram followers.

It appears that ink-happy Ed has had a giant lion tattooed on his chest, and it’s causing quite a stir on Twitter.

Some think it’s a tribute to the late lion legend, Cecil.

Others are sure it’s a tribute to another famous big cat – Mufasa from the Lion King.

Others still just think it’s plain ugly.

Whatever your opinion, Ed’s tatt is the perfect excuse for a pun.
