Ed Sheeran pranked with misspelled tattoo

Ed Sheeran wanted a tattoo to celebrate his song, “Galway Girl” and he to have the title in the handwriting of the actress featured in the video, Saoirse Ronan. So he asked her to tattoo him while they were in Glasgow for the taping.

However, Ronan decided to have a little fun at Sheeran’s expense, intentionally misspelling “Galway Girl” as “Galway Grill.” Sheeran shared the news his fans at his recent Glasgow gig, and being good-natured, he said he was proud of her, because it’s something he, himself, might have done. “It actually says Galway Grill. G-R-I-L-L. She really took the piss out of me – full on,” he said.

This isn’t Sheeran’s first commemorative tattoo. The singer had a lion tattooed on his chest after he played three sold-out gigs at Wembley Stadium in 2015. The singer is a tattoo fanatic and has more than 60, marking memorable moments in his life and career. They include a Heinz ketchup logo and a teddy bear as a nod to his childhood nickname Teddy.
