We all know that Harry Styles is partial to a tattoo - in fact we can't look away for A SINGLE MINUTE these days without the curly haired love-bot having yet something else etched into his beautiful skin.

However, unlike some *cough* Louis Tomlinson *cough* Harreh seems to like having some well deep and meaningful reasoning behind all his ink, and his latest tatt isn't any different.

Speaking about the two swallows he had tattooed on his chest while in LA last week, Hazman told US Weekly: "I did get some new tattoos! I got two swallows on my chest. I like that kind of style of tattoos, like the old sailor kind of tattoos.

"They symbolise traveling, and we travel a lot."

Ok, we do actually quite like that. And it beats getting a dirty great Boeing 747 etched on his noggin or something, we suppose.

Harry also added that despite pretty much living in a tattoo parlour these days, he's still not quite used to the pain of having a high-speed needle plunged repeatedly into his skin.

"Anyone who says tattoos don't hurt is a liar!" he laughed.

Oh Harreh you pain junkie you. What do you think of the curly one's latest tatt now that you know the meaning behind it?
