We asked our Young Post readers to design and draw a tattoo for Ed Sheeran with a Hong Kong theme, and to explain their concept in 150 words or less.

Here are some of our best entries:


Brioni Leung, 16, Oundle School

I am trying to bring out the main specialities of Hong Kong in this design. The orchid tree flower at the back represents the Hong Kong flag, while the bamboo steamer represents dim sum, a traditional Hong Kong dish. Inside the steamer are few of the main landmarks of Hong Kong, representing the beauty of this place.  These landmarks are ‘in’ the steamer, as it represents how petite Hong Kong is, but at the same time it’s busyness and how it is densely populated. They are in rainbow colours, highlighting the possibilities and prosperities of Hong Kong. At the same time, the colourful nature of this design matches Sheeran’s other tattoos as they are all brightly coloured. I hope this design would remind Sheeran of his memorable visits and concerts in Hong Kong.


Geetika Sachanandani, 16, HKMA David Li Kwok Po College

My design features the iconic HK skyline, including buildings like IFC and the BOC building. Inside the arc, we have monuments from england, like the Big Ben and St Mary Axe. The teacup represents the significance of tea to both England and Hong Kong, and the quote “home away from home” shows how Hong Kong loves him and he can consider HK his home especially if he’s far from England. I love Ed!!

I drew this because I love Hong Kong and I want to see Ed Sheeran. I was inspired by the busy roads and buildings of Hong Kong but also I was inspired by the beautiful skyline and the unique buildings. I also wrote 香港 because it is the chinese name for Hong Kong.


Natalie Lau, 14, International Christian School

The frame, which is inspired by the road signs in Hong Kong, cradle a homely scenery of the buildings and landscape that make up our city. The black and white one contrasts the colored one as they both symbolize different things. The black and white are showing solitary and emptiness, as to depict the meaningless endeavors of busy Hong Kongers. But for most people, the energetic colors of the second one can symbolize the excitement and prosperity of our beloved city! Hong Kong radiates passion, ambition, diversity, and fierceness- and I genuinely hope that my submission represents this.
