Harry Styles all inked up

The One Direction hunk has been to see Freddy Negrete at his Shamrock Parlor in Hollywood for several inkings, but the artist was devastated to learn the 19-year-old singer went elsewhere to get a rose etched onto his left arm earlier this month.

He told the Daily Star newspaper: "Harry said he would be back. I did his first tattoo and a lot of them since, until the big one when he was here with [ex girlfriend] Taylor Swift last year. I don't know why he's gone somewhere else now.

"I didn't do the rose. He didn't even get it here at the parlor. I don't know who did it."

Harry last visited Freddy in December 2012 with then-girlfriend Taylor when he got a large design of a ship on his left arm.

However, Harry looks unlikely to be back at the Shamrock Parlour - also a favorite haunt of soccer star David Beckham - anytime soon, as he has left Los Angeles following a short holiday during a break from the group's current 117-date Take Me Home Tour.

Freddy will be hoping the heartthrob wasn't talking about his designs when he recently admitted he regrets some of his tattoos.

He said: "There are some that my friends have done and some that are just awful.

"I regret this one on my wrist here. I regret this. I mean, these are just crap!"
