While the above headline is somewhat misleading (it’s not live TV if you watch it right now, now is it?) international teen heartthrob Harry Styles defaced his perfect arm with (another) shitty tattoo during a game of “tattoo roulette” with James Cordon on the Late Late Show.
How does one play Tattoo Roulette? Each player receives a box. Under the lid of every box but one is the word “safe.” Under the lid of the remaining box is the word “tattoo.” You can figure it out from there, right?
Naturally, Styles lost as he is the most popular of the group and would garner the most clicks today. He also already has a bunch of tats so another little guy is really NBD and he’s less likely to look like a pussy on live TV than, say, Niall Horan, the only ink-free member of the boy band.
So what did Styles get? Before the game, which was definitely not rigged, took place, the band agreed to have the words “Late Late” inked upon losing (or winning? I’m unsure of the Tattoo Roulette terminology). If Cordon lost (significantly less clicks) he would forever have “1D” on his bod.
Anyway, Styles gets the crappy tat, which isn’t nearly as awful as the monstrous shaded heart directly above it. We get the clicks and everyone’s a winner.
