Styles, 29, was photographed going for a swim in the Hampstead, England, duck ponds on Saturday, September 9, likely as a way to stave off the current heatwave that’s been affecting British locals. The One Direction alum wore a pair of forest-green swimming trunks, making his oh-so-toned abs incredibly visible to the naked eye.
“[There’s] not so many I regret, [but] there’s a couple I did myself that aren’t very good,” Styles previously quipped of his tattoos during a December 2015 appearance on The Late Late Show With James Corden. “One of my friends does a lot [of tattoos] and I got him a gun for his birthday — with all the right sterilizing equipment and everything. And I did one [on myself].”
He continued: “I’ve got a couple stupid ones [but] I don’t know if I regret them too much. I mean, I wrote ‘big’ on my big toe.”
During that Late Late Show appearance, Styles got the words “Late Late” inked on his bicep after playing — and losing — a round of “Tattoo Roulette” with his bandmates.
Earlier this year, Styles’ tattoo collection made headlines once again. In July, Page Six published snaps of the rocker boating in Italy with a giant “Olivia” tattoo on his thigh. While he did not address the meaning of the leg ink, fans speculated that it was either a reference to the 1D song of the same name or in honor of his now-ex Olivia Wilde.
