Dan showed his slender frame in the teenage snap and he was seen sporting a necklace and a short haircut.
In response to a fan request for a photo without tattoos, he penned: ‘Really struggling to find one. Can’t believe I’m posting this pic haha… I was 14 and just had a tattoo. What a lad I thought I was,’ alongside a face palm and laughing face emojis.
The legal age for tattoos in the UK is 18. Any tattoo shop or artist who completes a tattoo on a minor can be prosecuted and fined.

He shares a son, Teddy, with his ex-girlfriend Megan Tomlin, and two daughters, Ella, five, and Mia, two, with his partner Jacqueline Jossa.
The former EastEnders actress, 28 revealed she went to a therapist during lockdown in 2020, amid her marital woes with husband Dan.
However, Jacqueline confirmed she was ready to make a fresh start in November as she revealed her plans to move into a new family home in the New Year.
During a Q&A on her Instagram Stories, one fan asked: ‘What are your plans for 2021?’
The I’m A Celebrity winner revealed the family already have some big plans in place as well as some that still need to be made.
Listing her plans, Jac wrote: ‘To move house, have a chilled January and then work work work! Some big family birthdays, and plans need to be made.
It comes as she recently shed light on when she moved out of the home she shares with her family.
‘It felt like everybody wanted to watch me fall apart,’ she told The Sun. ‘I kept it in for a while, but then over lockdown it was a really good time and place for Daniel and I to go through everything — an opportunity for us to talk through it all.

‘For me, this meant turning to therapy. And because of that, I couldn’t be in the same house as Dan. There was no big argument or bust-up, and there were no other girls. Moving out was literally how I had to deal with it.’
Claiming she needed ‘space’ from her husband, Jacqueline went on: ‘It really, really helped, especially in terms of communication, teaching us how to talk to one another better. Therapy is a really good thing, whether for yourself or for a couple. I don’t understand why it’s still frowned upon.’
Jacqueline also addressed the women who have sold stories about her husband’s alleged infidelities.
‘Listen, you can’t stop the bitches selling stories — that is fact, I know that. They can say what they want, Daniel and I know the truth,’ she hit back.
Earlier in the year, Dan blamed the pressures of lockdown on the situation, adding that entertaining their children plus not being allowed their usual freedoms became too much and that they just needed ‘time apart’.
However, he insisted they had worked through their problems and were looking forward to having a ‘clean, fresh start together’.
He also said he’d like for them to renew their wedding vows as Dan admits that looking back on his wedding day amid the sea of negativity has ‘tarnished it’.
Jacqueline and Dan have had their share of ups and downs with allegations of cheating on Dan’s part since they married in 2017.
Dan later admitted he had been unfaithful to Jacqueline and that she had forgiven him for his past indiscretions.
