One Direction pulled a Twitter and Facebook request for fans to send in photos of their 1D tattoos over concern that it would encourage underage fans to tattoo themselves.

One Direction pulled a Twitter and Facebook request for fans to send in photos of their 1D tattoos over concern that it would encourage underage fans to ink “I <3 HARRY” on themselves.

“Have a real #1D tattoo? Show us! Submit a 90 sec YouTube video to 1d3dfan@gmail.com and show us why you should be in the @1D3Dmovie,” the group wrote on Saturday, according to the Daily Mail. The tweet and Facebook post were deleted the following day.

“This tweet was posted in error and has now been removed. One Direction do not want to encourage any of their fans to get 1D tattoos,” said 1D spokesman Simon Jones.

The message had more than 4,000 retweets and around 6,000 likes before it was removed.

It’s worth noting that every member of One Direction except Niall Horan is tatted up—which, for a minor, is as much of a tacit endorsement as a Facebook post.
