He told Hollyscoop: “I’ve got better things to do in my spare time than getting a tattoo.”
Harry - who already has several etchings - decided to get two more as he visited Shamrock Tattoos in Los Angeles, this time of two birds on his chest.
Harry isn't the only member of One Direction to have tattoos.
Zayn has several etchings and Louis and Liam recently got matching tattoos of screws yesterday, to match existing ones already inked on Harry and Zayn.
Louis tweeted: "So Me and Liam joined the crew yesterday and got two screw tattoo's on our ankles, now we all have it except Niall! Come on @NiallOfficial."
Niall is said to have a fear of needles and refused to join the other boys as they got inked.
