We're sure Niall would have been just as good at holding your hand Harry...


Having spent a couple of days apart, Harry Styles and Taylor Swift have had a romantic reunion in LA, where the One Direction boys have just arrived ahead of their X Factor USA performance this week.

Well, as romantic as a reunion that involves needles, a tatto parlour and Harry trying not to cry in front of his snogging partner can be, anyway.

Having canoodled all over the Cheshire countryside last week, Harry and Swifty met up again as soon as the lads touched down in LA.

It wasn't exactly the slow motion run into each other's arms you might expect after hearing Swifty's flower and snog filled songs though, and ever the gentleman Harry took his new lady love on a date to a tattoo parlour. Classy like.

Luckily he hasn't gone crazy, crazy, crazy just yet and instead of getting Tay's name permanently etched onto his face, Harold went for the safe(r) option and got a ginormous boat on his left arm, slap bang between his heart and Pink Floyd tatts.

This doesn't seem to have put Swifty or her twinset off him and she was looking pretty loved up as they posed for snaps together at the Shamrock Social Club tattoo shop where the deed was done.

Maybe it's a celebration of the boat dance or his secret passion for playing Battleship.

But what do you think of the new addition to his arm? Loving or loathing?
