Sigh. Remember how we learned Tuesday that Heidi Klum is currently trying to have a tattoo removed from her arm that she got in honor of her now ex-husband Seal? Yeah, well, it looks like One Direction’s Zayn Malik didn’t get the memo that it is a TERRIBLE idea to get a lover’s name or likeness tattooed on their body … because homeboy went and got his girlfriend Perrie Edwards’s face tattooed on his arm. During a concert tour stop in Maryland this week, Zayn and fellow 1Der Louis Tomlinson paid a visit to a local tattoo shop to get some new ink tattooed on their bodies. Zayn went ahead and got a likeness of his girlfriend tattooed on his arm and, well, see how it turned out below.
In their never-ending pursuit of manliness, the guys from One Direction spent Tuesday night on the prowl for tattoos and fried chicken … and lucky for them, they hit the bloody jackpot in Maryland. TMZ has learned … the guys were passing through Glen Burnie, MD this week when they had a sudden urge for some new body art — so they sent their bodyguard to scope out some of the local needle joints. We’re told the bodyguard liked what he saw when he walked into Tattooed Heart Studios … and 20 minutes later, in came Liam, Zayn and Louis. Zayn and Louis each came prepared with some designs in mind — Zayn wanted an image his of GF’s face … and Louis wanted doodles on his forearm of a spiderweb and a bomb. During the session, we’re told the guys had a craving for some fried chicken — so they sent their bodyguard to a nearby KFC, where he picked up a bucket of finger lickin’ deliciousness. In the end, we’re told Zayn and Louis dropped a pretty fat tip for the tat artist. As for Liam, we’re told he didn’t have any work done.
Yeeeeeeeah, I don’t know that this is a decision that Zayn Malik will be happy about in the future. It’s a bad idea to get someone’s name tattooed on your body … it’s an even worse idea to get someone’s face tattooed on your body (unless we’re talking about a portrait of a deceased loved one, which is actually very cool, IMHO). If Zayn and his girlfriend break up — which is very possible — he’s going to have a HUGE tattoo of his ex on his upper arm. Back when Harry Styles got that huge butterfly/moth tattooed on his chest, I thought he was the One Direction member with the worst tattoo … now I think Zayn has taken that title. Ugh. What do y’all think? Is Zayn’s tattoo of Perrie a sweet gesture of love or a horrible kiss of death for the relationship?
