Ed Westwick: Feather Tattoo Explained!

Ed Westwick: Feather Tattoo Explained!

Ed Westwick and girlfriend Jessica Szohr come out to support their Gossip Girl co-star Penn Badgley at the premiere of his new movie, The Stepfather at NYC’s SVA Theater on Monday (October 12).

About a month ago, Ed got a huge feather tattooed on the back of his left arm. What significance does the new ink have for the 22-year-old British actor? “My mate and I got it together,” Ed exclusively tells “He got an American eagle feather from a Native American and it means a lot to us. This is a world exclusive, Jared!” (He then proceeded to pat my shoulder in his charming Ed way.)

What does the eagle feather symbolize to Ed? “America has been good to me!”

    This will be a bit random, but I love your site Jared. I’ve always principally hated gossip-sites, as I always feel like a perv when I read them but you seem so nice and reflected! :) And Ed is hot!!

  • Just Jared

    @leah: Thank you so much, Leah!

  • sofia

    That’s a very well-executed tattoo. I wonder who his artist is?

  • Tom

    He is so strange looking and that tat sucks, just like all tats.

  • sancta simplicitas

    I’ve heard a lot of moronic statements, but this takes the price for foolery. Jeeezzz, what an idiot!

  • hmm

    The symbolism behind it is appropriately nice, but srsly, no one should ever get a tattoo like that, period. really, i cannot make sense of this guy.

  • ME

  • All Women Stalker

    Something is a bit weird with this face but that’s what I find hot about him. Haha.

    i don’t knock anyone’s tattoo. everyone gets what they what.. whatever means whatever to them. plus his tattoo looks a million times better than a lot of tattoo i’ve seen, mostly celebrity tattoos. the detail in his is a lot better than anything you see on jolie or any other celebrity you can think of.

  • LuckyL

    Incredibly lame. Unfortunately the “America” you’re thanking with that feather was long ago robbed from the Native Americans.

  • LuckyL

    And getting a tattoo with your girlfriend or boyfriend is never a good idea.

  • libby

    what he said to you & the pat on the shoulder sounds like something jesse would say / do haha

  • Heather

    Sophia also went to a hospital on this trip, like she regularly does to spend time with kids who aren’t doing well. That is her charity Art of Elysium. Everyone knows how great she is with kids. i guess you want to trash her for that too.
    Amazing she was able to accomplish so much in so little time.

  • lex

    He’s fugly and that tattoo is gross.

  • Robert Plant

    Oh come on, we all know its a tribute to the legendary Robert Plant from Led Zeppelin. His symbol was the feather. ROCK N ROLLLL!!!!!!

  • Chef de Cuisine

    I don’t get it.

  • Lawrence

    I don’t see anything wrong with what he said, then again a lot of you people are natural born assholes so that explains a lot.

  • Did you know…

    It is illegal to take a American Eagle feather and you can be charged up to thousands dollars if you take one. I never knew that until someone last week told me about it.

  • Nay

    He’s a got a feather on his arm now. Oh wow, attractive…

  • kelly

    ugly tattoo is still ugly

  • **Jamie**

    when he gets older that tattoo is just going to look like a large poo

  • sera

    Ed is hot, keep up the good work! –

  • coco

    He is a tiny man so he feels he must get tattoos to make him look tough. It is not working. Teeny weeney tiny toughie with a teeny peenie and a huge tat.

    Tattoo looks like a big black veiny d*** I agree with whoever said in a few years it will look like a giant poop. You would think a millionaire could afford a decent tattoo or do some research oh well.. just felt a need to comment. Hasta nunca!
