During boy band One Direction's appearance on The Late Late Show on RTÉ One on Friday night, singer Harry Styles revealed he acquired a new tattoo during the group's visit to Dublin.

Asked by host Ryan Tubridy about his most recent tattoo, Styles replied: "I've got one on my arms here [pointing to inside of arms]; I got it today."

Tubridy then asked to see the tattoo, but Styles explained that his arms were still covered following the tattooing and that he could not roll his jacket sleeves up.

He told Tubridy that the tattoo reads, 'Things I can' on the inside of one of his arms and 'Things I can't' on the other.

When asked by Tubridy what the tattoo meant, the group's Niall Horan added dryly: "It's a London thing."

During the interview, the group took part in a quiz and discussed fame and the foods they missed from home, with Mullingar's Horan saying he missed his granny's "cabbage, mash and turnip".
