Yes, you read that correctly, Zayn, 20, has gone and got himself a permanent reminder of his 19-year-old girlfriend etched onto his skin.
Let’s hope their relationship isn’t headed straight toward the laser removal clinic.
The tattoo in question depicts a cartoon version of Perrie wearing her favourite wooly hat and dressed in a camoflouge jacket.
TMZ published a picture of the tattoo which they claim Zayn purchased on a whim with his band mates Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne while on tour in Glen Burie, Maryland.
However, the photo has of course already done the round on Twitter with the following tweet being posted:
According to the site, Zayn brought in a picture of Perrie for the tattooist to transform into body art, while Louis opted for a somewhat less personal spider web.
Liam Payne meanwhile was reported to not get a tattoo so we’ll assume he was there for moral support.
Serial tattoo addicts Harry Styles and Niall Horan didn’t however join the threesome.
Perhaps they thought a tattoo of Perrie was one step too far – this being said, Harry Styles has ice gems tattooed on his body, so he couldn’t possibly pass comment.
Following the boy’s visit, Tattooed Heart Studios posted an excited message on their Facebook.
They wrote: "Guess who stopped by to get tattooed before they head out to Philadelphia today...”
This was followed by: "#onedirection #tattooedheartstudios #baltimore #maryland #zaynmalik #louistomlinson #liampayne."
Let’s hope Zayn doesn’t regret his decision and more importantly, that Perrie likes his interpretation of her…
