Harry Styles is sporting some new ink on his left arm. On Thursday night (Dec. 3), One Direction appeared on The Late Late Show and played a daring game of tattoo roulette, in which one member of the "Drag Me Down Band" or host James Corden would have to get a new tattoo.

Before the stakes got high, 1D sat down for an always-jovial chat with Corden. In theme for the evening, the band talked about their tattoo regrets. For Liam Payne, he's not a fan of his massive black arrows on his right arm, Harry Styles doesn't regret any of his tattoos, though he admits that inking "big" on his big toe was maybe not the most clever idea. Louis Tomlinson seems to have the most regrets, including a stick figure skateboarder and his ramp, which was actually his first tattoo.

Then, there is Niall Horan, the lone bare-skinned member of One Direction. Though, was that all to change?

The band played a very risky game of "tattoo roulette," in which they had to pick a random box. Four men (Corden played as well) would be safe, while one would have to get "Late Late" tattooed on them if they're in One Direction; if he lost Corden would get some 1D ink.

The game felt risky, especially for Horan, whose hands went clammy and shook with adrenaline. Horan was the last member of One Direction to go, and as each of his companions were marked "safe," he got increasingly terrified, until it was revealed that he would be OK after all. Styles was getting the tattoo, and he seemed pretty calm about it all.

And, of course what would a One Direction TV appearance be without a performance? Instead of rehashing a take on "Perfect" or even teasing its new single "Infinity," 1D enlisted a choir filled with fans for an intimate performance of "History."
