Ed Sheeran has a new tattoo of a Van Gogh painting.

The 'A Team' hitmaker decided to get a picture of the artist's 'Starry Night' - depicting a village and swirling stars above in yellows and blues- on his arm at a parlour in Derby.

Tattooist Kevin Paul, who did the work, told The Sun: "He didn't flinch and always asks for something really creative."

The British singer loves getting new pieces of body art and he already has several inkings on his body including one of fairy tale character Puss In Boots.

The singer has previously said that he gets a new tattoo for each country he visits to mark his touring achievements.

He recently had a maple leaf inked on his forearm to celebrate his tour of Canada.

He told Canada's Much Music website, "This is my fourth time in Canada now and it's become a habit - I've been getting a tattoo in almost every single American state and different country around the world I've been touring in, and since we're in Canada and I have time I'm going to get a maple leaf".

The star has been busy working on material for his second album as well as writing a song with singer Taylor Swift. He is set to start touring Australia soon.
