The Shape of You singer asked Hirst to create a new design for him and he's about to get it etched on his body.

''Damien has drawn my next tattoo so I'm going to get that done," Ed told The Sun on Sunday "It's a skull, it's very cool."

But first, the singer has to decide where to put the new ink, adding, "I've got way more than 60 tattoos so I don't know where it will go yet.''

Sheeran came up with the artwork for his new album Divide in Hirst's studio: "He just left me in there with a load of paint and I just threw it on this spin machine and created my album cover," Ed explained.
