This is a masterpost of all Liam’s tattoos. I’ll be updating it as needed!
OT5 Screws (12 October 2012)
Minus Niall who, I maintain, has a screw tattoo-ed on his heart if not on his skin
Everything I Wanted But Nothing I’ll Ever Need (20 October 2012)
“It’s basically that obviously we’ve got a lot of things from doing this and stuff, and there are things that I want, but all I ever need is my family and these four boys right here.”
only time will tell … (October 2012)
The Chevrons (7 November 2012)
“There’s no prizes for guessing what this means … that’s quite obvious.”
ugh, they make my heart hurt
Feather (April 2013)
“The feather was a thing, my mom when I was a kid, we would find feathers around the house and whenever she’d find them she’d say it was my nan that was leaving them there for us to find, which is quite sweet.”
Egyptian Hieroglyphs (August 2013)
Which spell out “Liam”
I Figured it Out … (August 2013)
“It’s not so much what it says, that’s actually some of the new words from one of our new songs that’s not out yet … that’s actually one from the start of one of the songs, so that’ll come to play later on.”
At least You & I made it on the album …
Somewhere is a Place that Nobody Knows (May 2014)
He loved a song that didn’t make the album so much that he tattooed it on his arm

NON-BRO TAT EXAMPLE NO. 2: A ship and a goddamn compass in case your bro gets lost.
NON-BRO TAT EXAMPLE NO. 3: Birds that have eyebrows like you and your bro, and a matching bird on your bro.

“Bro! Mine too!”
NON-BRO TAT EXAMPLE NO. 4: WhateverTF this means. No bromo!

NON-BRO TAT EXAMPLE NO. 5: Padlock and key, because your bro holds the key to your heart.

“Good idea, bro!”

GUCCI creates a new line of clothes with “L’aveugle par amour” written on it, that’s literally “The blind by love” or “Blinded by love”, and Louis appears yesterday with that new line of clothes (okay right), and what do we see? Clothes of this line inspired directly by Harry’s tattoos, remember he has probably got involved in the creation of this clothes’ line?! OHMYGOD why are they like this
I’m not saying anything, yet there’s absolutely no hazard.
Everyone else in the room can see it - A masterpost
All quotes used are original.
Initial reaction or information as a starter
it just seemed very far fetched to me and too crazy to be true.
always felt like Elounor was a bit fishy
even though I hear rumblings about “Larry” I didn’t believe it at all
I knew nothing about the band, their music (except WMYB lol), what they looked like (except 17-year-old Harry)
Immediate reaction after seeing videos/story told
My husband is quite impatient so after 30secs he’s like “Yeah ok they’re clearly together, so what’s your point?"
he was speechless, he then asked if the whole fandom knew because you’d have to be blind to not be able to tell
He totally called it after watching like two clips
I’m not even from this fandom but is there people who actually think he is not with the other one guy from this band??
It’s seemed so obvious to me that H&L had something going on between them
I guess what I’m trying to say is that it’s not just Larries that can see H&L’s relationship. It’s super obvious to people outside of the 1D fandom too
and i’m also pretty sure two of them are in love, which is how I found your blog
So the two that were singing to each other on the AMA’s, when did they come out? I don’t remember hearing about it. (AMAS 2014)
Does the little one with the cheekbones know the prince is in love with him? (male, 40 married, teen kids, AMAS 2014)
who is he looking at?!” but I didn’t reply. When the performance ended she looked at me and said, “he was so looking at Louis THE WHOLE TIME.” and she said it as if she’s been shipping them for years, although I rarely mention it to her (mom, AMAS 2014)
young couple that basically said that they newly ship larry cuz they were watching the AMAs and saw how much they are actually together and I wrote your blog name down for them and LITERALLY PEOPLE ARE SHIPPING IN FALAFEL SHOPS (AMAS 2014)
You didnt tell me there was a romance in the band! Those two there *points at Harry and Lou* are the cutest! (gay brother, AMAS 2014)
As the performance we ending, she looked at me and said in reference to Harry “he just can’t help himself can he? (AMAS 2014)
It hurts me to say but I realized that. Every time he sang ‘it will never change me and you’ he looked straight at Louis. You might be right about this Larry thing (non-shipper, AMAS 2014)
Is Harry looking at louis through the whole performance (outsider, AMAS 2014)
hey you like that harry styles guy right? What’s up with him and that other guy in the band, are they in love? (AMAS 2014)
My only question about the performance, who was he staring at? (twitter, AMAS 2014)
two staff members were talking about the ama’s and one said to the other did you see those two from one direction staring at each other last night? I think something’s up there? And the other lady said no shit they had serious eye fucking going on. So I slid past them and said wait until you google their tats and then walked away smirking (supermarket, AMAS 2014)
You said Harry was staring at the other one the whole……ohhhhhhh. Yeah I get it. (husband, AMAS 2014)
I saw the AMAs and they looked happy together and it’s nice to see, they aren’t being too crazy with the pda though which is really cool too (friend who thought they’re already out, AMAS 2014)
omg harry is totally gay, and louis! they’re so gay for each other! was i blind this whole time?? (after watching Larry videos)
You were right. They’re in love. (dad, AMAS 2014)
he’s not even hiding it anymore, is he? singing straight to him. (husband, AMAS 2014)
god, Harry truly does love Louis, doesn’t he? (mom, AMAS 2014)
that one (Louis, I didn’t even know his name yet) is gay and…he has a crush on one of his band mates. (video diaries)
*points at Louis* “that one’s gay” (mom, TMH)
They are so obviously gay and in love
30 sec into the first video, she turns to me and goes “and why are people arguing about whether they’re a couple or not? (mom, videos)
'oh he’s the gay one isn’t he?’ I was like ye with Harry and then she replied with 'he’s definitely gay but i can’t see so much about Harry, he has the possibility’ she came to me after the AMAs and was like 'yep your right sorry Harry is deffo gay’!! (TIU then AMAS 2014)
Well, I looked up Harry Styles yesterday and saw pictures of them and if they’re not together then I’m a damn fool (straight boy)
The camera guy should’ve moved away aand let him do his thing (AMAS, 2014)
Besides, I saw them on the AMAs, and that little one with the big hair probably has his hands full with the tall one in the hat that fake-dated Taylor Swift. (brother, AMAS 2014)
how do people not believe their together? They’re so fucking obvious, you’d think they already have kids. HE’S SUBMISSIVE, WITH A DADDY KINK? WHO’S THE LUCKY BASTARD?” He was shown a pic of Louis and his jaw dropped. “Makes so much sense.” (gay dad AMAS 2014, call me daddy tweet and little spoon)
They are so so obvious, I can’t believe people still don’t believe it. (dad)
I kinda know what you’re trying to say, ok? I’m 62 years old, and if you believe they’re in a romantic relationship, then you’re not crazy. Curly was serenating him and Arched Brows liked it
(mom, AMAS 2014)
And after that kind of statement you needed to ask me if I think they’re in a relationship? Haha, you’re funny (same mom, Mario Kart int.)
holy shit dude they’re together. (co-worker, Mario Kart int)
I’m not a Larry shipper per se, but even I’m like: so he was with Louis (outsider at Jesal’s not with Louis tweet)
IT WAS SO OBVIOUS!! (mom, 40 yo)
well that explains all the leaning in
they make the goggliest heart eyes, it’s so bad
Laaaa’, you didn’t tell me two of them were banging each other. Why no one’s talking about it (brother, 15 yo, video diaries)
Ok, they weren’t only banging each other, they’re fucking married. Should I tell my classmates to stop fantasizing over them? (same brother after AMAS 2014)
it’s the way they look at each other. Louis doesn’t look like that with his gf and Harry doesn’t look at anyone else like he looks at Louis. (12 yo, AMAS 2014)
which one of the boys is your favorite?’ and I said it was Louis and she was like 'Harry’s husband?’ (mom, WWA DVD)
Oh my gosh, he’s gay! He’s so gay! It’s so obvious! (mom, “Now kiss me you fool”)
So what’s up with him and the teeny tiny one? Are they married? (aunt)
and people still doubt and question whether they’re in a relationship?! (oldest sister, when jealous Harry grabbed Louis’ leg in the interview)
Harry sexuality vs narrative not adding up
Why would someone straight have so many PR stunts
This is like the scene in the
movie where you realize all the red strings on your wall of clues and suspects
point to the same place: Harry Styles’s butthole
You can’t have a womanizer who looks miserable with women
it was just the vibe that I got from him. He’s very flirty and charming in person towards basically everyone around him, men and women alike, but he just seemed a lot more comfortable around other men. Also just the way he carries himself is much more feminine than most straight men that I know. And that doesn’t always mean definitely gay, but in a room where the majority of the men were openly and comfortably gay, he didn’t stick out as the lone straight man, is basically what I’m saying
sorry but I’m pretty sure he’s gay
Makes sense I had a feeling Harry liked boys so I was confused when he pushed a girl to him.
I think you should like the Irish one honey, I think harry is gay
The one boy with the curly hair, Harry Styles, I like him” and I was like yeah lol so do I why because it was out of no where and he goes, “He’s just so like funny and doesn’t care. He’s gay, right? I see him and he acts gay and people ask him but he doesn’t answer just acts more gay, It’s rad. And then the next day I come back and he goes “What about Louis? Is he gay too?”
I didn’t know that 1d guy is gay (someone looking at Louis and Harry on the phone of the person who they sat next to)
“is the hottie also gay? This is beautiful, he’s singing to the other one!” (1D day, little things)
the broomstick and the elf need to stop staring at each other or people are gonna think something’s up (dad, AMAS 2014)
"is the curly haired one gay” and then when Louis was talking about his deepest love my brother said “I bet you he’s talking about the curly haired one” (brother, 1d TV special)
that harry styles, he likes the older men (dad, Graham Norton)
Brother: I didn’t know they were a couple. I thought this one (points at Harry) was the only gay member. (brother)
Louis sexuality vs narrative not adding up
If Louis comes out later this year or next year, I guarantee that no one in Doncaster over the age of 16 is going to be remotely surprised or shocked. /Doncaster resident
He stood there about 30 seconds pointed at Louis and said “he’s gay.” Everyone can see it. (42 yo boss upon hearing 1D)
ahhh like Elton John, I’m not surprised (grandma)
No one, I repeat no one, from the general Doncaster area would be surprised if Lou was gay. My little sister is his age, and I remember when 1d were on the xfactor, all of her friends used to talk about him being gay. All the lads I grew up with think he’s gay, it’s a common opinion there
HL narrative not adding up
Never put together in interviews or seated next to each other.
They want to quell the rumors because they’re actually true.
How Harry has all his tattoos on one arm and Louis on another (this was before
the tats on Louis’ left hand)
The more Harry and Louis blatantly ignore each other
onstage, the more I get confirmation that something is going on between them
that is trying to be covered up. There is absolutely no reason for the complete
180 in interaction. The other guys have had rumors as well, but they still talk
all the time.
it is very clear that louis and harry can’t interact, I found it weird cause I didn’t see it much in that performance like I didn’t think it was that noticeable, maybe I’m used to it, but I then showed him their cute interaction and he said no wonder they can’t it takes 5 secs to know they are more than just friends haha (dad, iheartradio 2014)
50+ year old man watched that special just to see how H&L acted together & he said they are the reason he wants to listen to Four
Brother, 30 m. later: Oh. So they say “We are straight”, and then get coule tattoos and look obviously gay together. Funny. The girlfriend (makes air quots) is pretty though. (brother)
but when I mentioned the public separation, she came to a stop. And then she said: 'Well, that sounds fishy. Why would they be separated if there was nothing going on? That doesn’t make any sense.’ Ding, ding ding. (mother)
it’s the only explanation that makes sense. There comes a time when coincidences stops being coincidences and starts being a pattern, you know?
how Louis’ family made it a point to let
everyone know that Harry was there
we saw pics of him mingling with Louis’ family and none of Eleanor with Louis
You don’t waste your time and your energy to hide somethings that is supposed to be false
Either they have the worst team ever or they are laying low before something big hits
they aren’t disproving the rumor solidly besides on twitter because they know they will lose many fans (Larries) by disproving it
Wow, they surely have an iron grip on them, is it because two of them are involved? ..<>… Hahaha please, everybody knows! (friend from the music industry)
my mom came to me this morning and asked me about larry stylinson. out of the blue asked me 'what and who is larry stylinson’. this is a 45 year old woman who has literally /no/ time to read the news, watch tv or anything because of the workload she has so the fact that she comes up to me and asks this completely baffled me. turns out she had read more than three articles on different websites in between a week on different days (shes kinda hooked on 1d drama despite not having the time) and had picked up on larry stylinson because it had been mentioned. these articles were all different. one to do with zayn leaving, the tour rider and louis and eleanor. she said to me that when she was dealing with a case one time (she works for the police and works in liason with journalists on seeding info abt crimes in the media so that its less of a shock when people find out) that everytime they got closer to the suspect being found guilty they kept mentioning his/hers name more &more contand she said to me that she found it interesting that this name had been mentioned a lot of times. i said to her that there used to be literally no larry articles once and she said that somethings going to happen and whilst we all know this what with seeding and everything it was just nice to see an outsiders perspective on it. she also mentioned that the two pictures of h&l together would help coax younger fans who might read articles into seeing them together which i found interesting as well!
Had an idea
The one.. I think Lewis (yes he said it that way) is his boyfriend right?
he looks at Louis and goes hey isn’t that the one who’s dating that styles kid?
the group with the two boys in love with other
is it true Harry and Louis are together? (12 yo)
he is WITH LOUIS AND FANS CALL THEM LARRY’ AND I WAS LIKE WHOA WHERE DID YOU HEAR THIS FROM , she found it on the web and she said rumours about his sexuality were also on the tv this is how spread this is guys my grandma found it (grandma)
that one on the left gay (harry) the 20 yo in the seat next to me goes yeh he is with that one whose staring at him (louis) the stylist replied with oh yeah ive heard about those two (hahir stylist)
mum was looking over my shoulder and when Liam said 'a song about beards because that’s new’ or whatever, she went 'huh no it’s not, that tiny one and his twin have been pretending to be dating for a while now’ (mom)
is it because he’s dating the curly haired one?“ (friend’s reaction after hearing that some fans hate Louis)
The other day i was talking to my best friend (a bloke, not interested in 1d at all, who barely knows their names) and 1d came up in our conversation. He was trying to remember their names and he goes like "there’s the blond one, uh, and then there are the two who are together…”.
Today some of my friends from grad school were gossiping about celebs and 1D came up, which never happens in my circle. I casually brought up that two of the members were dating. One of them asked me which two so I start to say “Harry and…"and I got interrupted my other friend says "Louis.” The whole group shrugs at me like its old news.
You don’t do this with a friend.
I mean is
that normal? Is it? For your best friend to get into a relationship with a girl
and you go and get a compass right after he gets a ship? Not even a full day
later? Is that normal?
they’re acting like that awkward couple that has so much chemistry and everyone wants them to date cause they look so cute together
I don’t think I’ve ever looked at someone like that in my entire fucking life. There was so much flirting between them Jesus.
she saw Louis and Harry sharing one of their 'looks’ and immediately went 'Oh, these two like each other, don’t they? (video diaries)
I have only seen that look once.“ and I was so confused so I asked where and he said "My dad looked at my mom that way till the last moment he held her hand (grandpa)
I saw a gif set of the infamous "if that” moment. Louis’ response made me suspicious b/c that’s not how a straight guy would normally talk about his best friend’s gf
little sister who is kind of a her girl, and my mum and brother were like 'who is the gay one?’ and she got really angry but when they saw Louis it was so funny they were pointing at him saying it as him (AMAS 2014)
How come people don’t know?! They’re so obvious. Look at the way they look at each other. (mom)
it’s obvious that a lot of their tattoos are a matching set
We should get those! I can get the ship, and you the anchor cus you keep me grounded (boyfriend to his girlfriend after seeing the anchor and rope- no faces shown)
okay but why can’t they just be together (anchor/rope tattoo)
yeah the birds have like human faces/eyes. (dad)
I’ve been married for 10 years now, and I still don’t think I’d get a couple tattoo with my husband don’t tell him
i jokingly asked ‘so who’s gonna get the rope tattoo and who’s gonna get the anchor’ and she turns to her husband and says ‘that’s so cute it’s the same concept as if i get a lock and you get the key’ and he laughs and i continue just pitching out other ideas for complimentary tattoos and bring up the compass and the ship and gave a brief explanation and she LOVED it so i continued and said ‘maybe you should tattoo it on opposite arms so when you hold hands or walk next to each other it would align’ and he looks at me and goes ‘that’s too much no one does that’ and she laughs and says ‘do you know people that has that’
absolutely, no way, too much commitment. (about getting complementary tattoo)
‘So his mum or someone has the rope,’ she said, and when I told her it was Louis she was pretty taken back and ranted about how they were ‘pretty fucking stupid.’ And I was like, ‘they don’t just have one matching pair, they have six.’
I asked him like the dork I am, if those tattoos are for couples or friends, he said: “Maybe one, but 3 or 4 that’s a bit too much don’t you think?” and then he pointed at the ship/compass and he went: “I actually thought they’re together when I saw only this… So…” (tattoo artist)
Yeah, they’re fucking. They might even be married, that’s legal in England, ain’t it? (tattoo artist)
our artist saw my phone background and said “two of those guys have to be dating. like you two are getting matching tats but those two, that’s different. my wife won’t even get tats like that with me” (tattoo artist)
Wait. Is this a dagger? Me: Yeah. Brother: Doesn’t the curly one have a rose? Me: Mhm. Brother: I didn’t know they were a couple.
