Perrie approves of One Direction star's inking

Perrie Edwards is flattered by Zayn Malik‘s tattoo of her.

The One Direction heartthrob, 20, got a portrait of his girlfriend etched onto his upper arm during a trip to Tattooed Heart Studios, Maryland in June.

And with the couple spending so much time apart when they’re on tour, Perrie is glad that Zayn always has a reminder of her.

It must be love to be honest,’ Perrie, 20, tells Yahoo! OMG! Insider.

When I’m away from him, I guess he can just take a look at his arm and remind him of me. So it’s a lovely compliment really.

I love it, it’s lovely.’

Zayn got the tattooist to base the design on a sketch the 1D star had done of Perrie wearing a bobble hat.

And the Little Mix singer is impressed with the likeness.

Yeah [I like it], it’s a cartoon version of me so it’s a little caricature so it’s cool,’ she says.
