Harry Styles’ Heart, 3 Nails, & Coathanger Tattoos

Harry Styles’ Heart, 3 Nails, & Coathanger Tattoos
By | On January 10, 2013

Although Harry Styles’ ship tattoo is probably the singer’s most talked-about ink because of its size and potential connection to ex-girlfriend Taylor Swift, the black heart tattoo located next to the ship also sparked quite a bit of speculation, since it was inked in the presence of Taylor that same day. And while we all try to guess the meaning behind Harry’s heart tattoo, there are two other tattoos that have gotten One Direction fans scratching their heads: the seemingly random coathanger and nails tats Harry has inked right next to the black heart on his left arm. Read on to learn more about Harry Styles’ cryptic arm tattoos and some possible reasons why he got them inked!

Harry’s Black Heart Tat on Left Arm

On the upper part of his left arm, Harry has a large heart filled in with black ink, which he added to his tattoo collection while in L.A. in December 2012. The black heart tattoo is inked to the left of Harry’s ship tattoo and matches a similar heart tat Zayn Malik, Lou Teasdale and Tom Atkin also have. While many people assumed that Harry’s ship and heart tattoos were a tribute to Taylor because of a near-identical ship tattoo that showed up in her “I Knew You Were Trouble” music video, the singer was quick to squash those rumors. As Harry said to tattoo artist Freddy Negrete of the Shamrock Social Club tattoo shop, “We’re always on the road but my heart is at home and I want a ship,” so it makes sense that the pop star would accompany the giant ship tat with a tattoo of a heart. Some people think that Harry’s heart arm tattoo could also be a pun, meaning he wears his heart on his sleeve.

Three Nails Inked on Harry’s Arm

Harry Styles 3 Nails TattoosIf you thought it was weird that Harry has two screws tattooed on his ankles, you might find it even weirder that the singer also has three nails inked on his arm. Potential obsession with carpentry aside, there’s no telling yet what Harry’s nails tattoo means, but we’re sure he will spill the beans sometime soon. Harry Styles’ tattoo featuring three large nails is located on the upper part of his left arm, next to his black heart, coathanger and ship artwork. Harry has stayed mum about the meaning behind his arm tattoo, but some have said that the ink could be a pun for nail gun, a good luck symbol or a religious sign. Harry’s nails tattoo was first spotted in pictures posted online in February 2013, and the same tat is probably shared by one or more of his One Direction band mates, since they apparently love getting matching tattoos.

Harry Styles Coathanger Arm Tattoo

Harry Styles Heart and Coathanger tattoosNow this tattoo is a complete mystery. Harry Styles added a new tattoo to his massive collection on August 8, 2012, and the piece portrays a tiny black coathanger inked on his left bicep, near Harry’s black heart and nail tattoos. It seems that quite a few One Direction fans have gotten identical coathanger tattoos inked on their bodies, even though we can pretty much guarantee they have no idea what the ink means. And because nobody really knows what Harry Styles’ hanger tattoo means, there is quite a bit of speculation about the mysterious ink. Some people believe that the tat is yet another reference to Harry’s sexual preferences, meaning he is in the closet, while others claim that the tat is some kind of reference to being controlled and manipulated by the music industry.

    Well I think I know! This may not be Harry’s reason but the symbol is the same no matter what!! The three nails means Jesus Christ and His sacrifice on the Cross for all of mankind’s sin and that because of His sacrifice the way back to God for mankind has been restored and what Jesus went through. Cuz Jesus had three nails go into his hands and feet when He was on the Cross! Harry if you happen to read this, idk if that was the meaning of your tattoo but that is what symbol means! I think that is awesome!

    As far as I understand: YHWH is the original name of God. The vowal ‘W’ (waw as in wow) has been replaced from Aramaic to Hebrew by a consonant ‘V’ (vav as in evil). YHWH became YHVH. Deception.
    In Aramaic pictographs the W is represented by an icon/symbol identically to the letter Y. This is the called the ‘tent peg’ or ‘nail’. In Hebrew alphabet this nail is the W/V which is the number 6. In English alphabet this is the letter F, sounds similar and is also the 6th letter.

    #FFF color code is 666 and turns everything black
    WWW = 666
    Monster energy drink logo = 3 times the letter ‘vav’ in Hebrew, 3 nails.. also written as nails scratchin surface, hence 666 and the name Monster

    Jesus was crucified on the cross with 3 nails.
    Every nail is a 6.
    Three nails therefore represent 666.
    It’s a hidden code for Satanic worship.

    Many artists are into the occult and sell their souls to the devil for temporary fame and wealth on earth.
    They risk eternity in the lake of fire.

    They need to repent for Jesus or will be doomed forever. May God have mercy on their souls.

    3 nails is 666
    A cross with Jesus on it.. crucified with 3 nails is satanic too.

    In Exodus 20 God commands us not to make any graven images and bow down to it.

      Just because someone has a tattoo of 3 nails doesn’t mean it’s a hidden satanic message and Jesus was hung on the cross with 3 nails so for you idiots out there thinking that it is WWW or FFF or VVV it’s not there could be another thing but Jesus had 3 nails in his hands and feet so get it right
