We think it's fair to say that Zayn Malik has - how do we put this? - an ill-advised interesting collection of tattoos and he's added to his body art with a new inking of his Little Mix girlfriend Perrie Edwards.

Aaawww, Zayne, you shouldn't have. No, honestly, you REALLY shouldn't have.

The 20-year-old One Direction star was snapped having the tat completed on his upper arm at the Tattooed Heart Studios in Maryland.

The new inking comes just months after his relationship with Perrie, 19, was rocked by allegations that he'd spent the night with Aussie waitress, Courtney Webb.

And Zayn wasn't the only member of One Direction adding to their body scrawlings. Louis Tomlinson also treated himself to a new inking.

When will this madness end?

  • Just in case they forget what they do for a living (well, for next year or two at least...), one of the boys got a tattoo of a microphone on their arm. But which one?

  • Zayn Malik!

  • Ah, the classic star... but which 1D star does it belong to?

  • Harry Styles!

  • One of the band opted for arrows going up his arm, presumably to help with, y'know, pointing at things. But who?

  • Liam Payne!

  • 'Be true to who you are' says one of One Direction's Arabic neck tattoos...

  • Aw, a pretty bird. But who does it belong to?

  • Fingers crossed - presumably that the hits keep coming. But whose lucky charm is this?

  • Zayn Malik, of course!

  • On the other hand, one of boys are currently tattoo-less, as demonstrated by this baby smooth chin and neck. So, who is the true rebel of One Direction who refuses to get inked...?

  • Yup. It's Niall Horan.
