X marks the spot!

Ed Sheeran appears to have gotten some new ink. The "Thinking Out Loud" singer took to Instagram Tuesday to share a shot of his chest, emblazoned with a giant lion.

"Halfway done and ouch," he captioned the photo.

According to the BBC, the redheaded Brit, 24, decided to get the new body art to commemorate his three-night slew of sold-out shows at Wembley Stadium.

"Originally I was going to get the floor plan tattooed on my side, but that seemed a bit ridiculous," he told the overseas outlet, adding he opted for the lion instead. (It's the English soccer team's logo.)

Halfway and ouch

Sheeran is, of course, no stranger to tattoos: He got his first in 2010 and has over a hundred, from a ketchup bottle and teddy bear to a tree and LEGO piece.

"I really only ever wanted one, and then I made the mistake of getting another, and then you make the mistake of looking at your arm and thinking: 'Hrm, well it would look cool if this was there.' And then you get another one," the singer told PEOPLE last year of his ink. "They all mean specific things."
