    There is a sign that looks like waves on his left wrist. Those squiggly lines represent the Aquarius symbol. Because Harry was born on February 1, 1994, he is an Aquarius.

    A big ship tattoo can be found on the outside of his left arm. This tattoo was a tribute to his family and his home. Harry wanted to get a realistic English ship tattooed because he missed being home and he wanted a reminder that he is homeward bound.

    Harry has two screw tattoos (one on each ankle). The tattoo looks like a small x, and each of the members of One Direction has one. Harry first got the tattoo with former member of One Direction, Zayn Malik. The two tattooed the screws on each other. Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne got the tattoo next. Niall Horan was the last to get the tattoo because he is afraid of needles.

    Mr. Styles has two swallows inked on his chest as a cover up for his love banner tat. In reference to his swallow tattoos, Harry is quoted as saying, "[The swallows] symbolize traveling, and we travel a lot. I like that kind of style of tattoos, like the old sailor kind of tattoos."
