Friday 5 August 2022 12:13 AM Harry Styles had to spend THREE HOURS in makeup getting his tattoos covered up trends now
Harry Styles is a handsome and debonair leading man in the film Don't Worry Darling.
However, it took an enormous amount of work to prepare him for the frank love scenes with screen wife Florence Pugh — because he has so many tattoos.
The former One Direction star, who now has a huge career as a solo musical artist, has 60 of them: covering his arms, legs and torso.

Make-up artists first had to colour-correct each design, sponging red pigment over the black.
Then they were covered in green pigment, followed by powder to seal. Finally, a cream foundation was applied, to cover them.
The whole process took around three hours.
Jason Collins is credited with special make-up effects on the film — he is also the man who supervised Lily James's transformation into Pamela Anderson for Pam & Tommy, using prosthetics and cosmetics.

Don't Worry Darling, directed by Styles's girlfriend Olivia Wilde, is set in the 1950s, in a suburban Utopia where the men work on the 'Victory Project' and their wives don't ask too many questions about what, exactly, that is.
It will premiere at the Venice Film Festival later this month.

Harry, 28, and Florence, 26, play a married couple in the sexually charged movie, which tells the story of a 1950s housewife living with her husband in a utopian experimental community. Olivia appears as a character called Bunny.
