WORLD EXCLUSIVE The 1D hottie opens up about his skin ink

One Direction‘s Zayn Malik isn’t the only one in the band to adore tattoos, but he is getting a collection that might soon rival David Beckham‘s.

Could he be getting addicted?

‘A little bit, yeah,’ Zayn, 19, tells Now’s Dan Wootton.

‘I want to fill my entire right arm up to my elbow to start.

‘I’ve got loads of ideas. I draw as well.

‘I’m more addicted to coming up with the ideas of what I can get tattooed rather than the actual tattoo itself.’

Fortunately Little Mix‘s Perrie Edwards, 19, loves her boyfriend’s body art.

‘Oh yeah! She likes the whole rock’n’roll look,’ says Zayn.

‘She likes my tatts.’
