Zayn Malik gets inked again in LA

Zayn Malik loves his tattoos and he’s had another added to his collection.

The One Direction star has a new gun etched on his hip.

Zayn popped into Mark Mahoney’s Shamrock Social Club tattoo parlour in Los Angeles with Liam Payne and his pet dog Harley on Thursday night.

Louis F Perez III inked Zayn, 20, with the pistol, which points down as if it’s tuckeed into the 1D singer’s pants.

Louis posted a snap of Zayn’s newly-decorated stomach on Instagram with the caption: ‘Made sure my homey was strapped.

But the artwork is proving controversial and the tattoo artist soon deleted the picture.

In June Zayn Malik proved his love for girlfriend Perrie Edwards by getting her face tattooed on his arm.

Perrie, 19, wears a bobble hat in the etching.
