The Thinking Out Loud hitmaker shared a picture of the latest addition to his body art collection on by taking a 'selfie' while part-way through the inking, adding in a caption, "Halfway and ouch".

The image shows an orange and black tattoo, which covers much of his chest, and the work was carried out by British celebrity ink artist Kevin Paul.

Sheeran later thanked Paul on for putting up with "me complaining about the pain".
