Say this for Harry Styles: He’s certainly living like he’s young.

The lead singer of One Direction and recent Taylor Swift ex got “One Thing” tattooed across his chest a few weeks back: A giant butterfly. But Styles isn’t in the business of snapping shirtless selfies — the tattoo artist, Liam Sparkes, posted the picture to his Flickr account (now deleted), which is why millions of One Directions fans are now freaking out on Twitter. This is not how they pictured their future husband’s torso on the white sands of some private island.

EW reached out to a rep for Styles, who confirmed that the picture is of Styles and that the butterfly is his new tattoo. Styles, who already has a bunch of other tattoos all over his body (U.K. tabloid The Daily Mail has a full breakdown), may have gotten the tat to mark his 19th birthday, which was Feb. 1.

So many questions: What’s he trying to tell us? Did he lose a bet to Liam? Will this be documented in 1D3D? How does Justin Bieber feel about another teen superstar getting involved in the tat game? Most importantly: Will Swift’s new single be Trapped Like A Butterfly?
