American sweetheart Taylor Swift recently spent time at a tattoo parlor -- but it appears it was only as a gesture of support for a special person.

The 23-year-old country and pop star recently accompanied her rumored boyfriend Harry Styles of the all-male pop group One Direction to the Shamrock Tattoo Parlor in Los Angeles, as seen in a Instagram photo that artist Freddy Negrete posted of the two, along with him and co-worker Isaiah Negrete.

As seen in the picture, published early on Wednesday, December 19, Styles, 18, received a tattoo of a pirate ship on his bicep. Swift did not appear to get inked herself. The two have been linked romantically for the past several weeks and have been photographed together in Los Angeles but have not confirmed a relationship.

"@harrystyles new tat and #taylorswift and me and @booboonegrete good times," Negrete wrote.

He told Us Weekly magazine: "Harry and Taylor seem to be very close friends. Taylor was enjoying her first experience in a tattoo shop while Harry got some new ink. They're great people, having a good time. Tattoos are always fun."
