The 1D boys love having decorated skin

Louis Tomlinson and Zayn Malik have been adding to their body art collections again.

The One Direction singers headed to LA’s Shamrock Tattoo House on Wednesday to get some new ink on their arms.

Louis, 20, had a compass etched on his skin while Zayn, 19, filled in his David Beckham-esque sleeve with a drawing of a skull.

Their visit to the parlour came a day after Taylor Swift watched Harry Styles brave the needle to get a new tattoo of a ship on his bicep.

1D flew to the US earlier this week to perform on US X Factor, which was won by country singer Tate Stevens last night.

Niall Horan may have avoided the tattooist’s chair but he seemed to impress reality stars Kendall and Kylie Jenner when he met them backstage.

‘@onedirection did amazing tonight! And good meeting you @niallofficial!’ Tweeted Kylie, 15.
