The One Direction star got an impressive naval galleon inked on his left arm at Shamrock Tattoo Parlor in Los Angeles, while his clean-cut new girlfriend Taylor Swift and his band mates looked on for moral support.
Website the MailOnline reported: "Taylor made sure she was close by to hold Harry's hand through the procedure, with the singer chatting to a female pal as her boy band beau went under the needle."
Despite a rather sore-looking bicep, the 18-year-old singer grinned as he underwent the painful procedure at the parlor, which is a favorite with stars including soccer player David Beckham, and later posed for pictures with country singer Taylor.
The 'Little Things' hit maker is addicted to body art and is keen to add to his already impressive collection of inkings. His last tattoo - which was also etched at Shamrock last month - was a giant pair of birds on his chest.
Celebrity tattooist Kevin Paul recently commented: "Last time I spoke to Harry he said he is going to hold off on the sleeve for now but will be getting new bits soon.
"They're really personal to him - the reasons he had them done and stuff, so he doesn't really want to announce what they are. One was something from his childhood, and another one was something really important in his life."
