    One Direction Played "Tattoo Roulette" And It Got Pretty Tense

    Because why not? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    As any good One Direction fan knows, (almost) all of the boys in the band have quite an affinity for tattoos.

    With the exception of Niall, all of them are practically covered in ink.

    So when the foursome made an appearance on The Late Late Show on Thursday, host James Corden suggested that they play a game of "Tattoo Roulette".


    Basically, each band member (plus James) picked out a box. Four of the boxes held the word "safe", and one said "tattoo". The person who got the "tattoo" box had to get a tattoo live on TV.

    As the only non-tattooed member of the band, Niall was terrified.


    But the rest of the guys were pretty ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ about the whole thing.


    Niall got a bit antsy as they were revealed as ~safe~ one by one...


    And Harry had to give him a little hug.

    Say it with me: Awwwwwww.

    Luckily, Harry was then revealed to be ~the chosen one~, and Niall Horan could live to see another ink-less day.


    And Harry Styles has a new tattoo now.
