The One Direction singer and his bandmate visited the Tattooed Heart Studios in Maryladn during their US tour and Zayn now has Perrie ink onto his arm forever.
Sugarscape.com spoke exlcusively to the artist responsible for the tatt and John James Garancheski III (best name ever?) confirmed that Zayn came in with a image based on his girfriend.
He said, "He wanted to do like a punk rock-ish...like a comic character. Like a girl that was kind of comic'd-up and had a little bit of a punk rock look to her.
"So we took a couple of images and put them together. He did a little sketch on a piece of paper for me. He was like 'I'm kinda thinking something like that.' I was like 'Well, let me work on it.
"Let me see if I can make it something that we're both really excited about.' 'Cause it was really short notice and I wanted to do the best job I could if I was gonna tattoo him.

Bless John, he hadn't even heard of Perrie before so imagine having to ink her into Zayn's arm with all that pressure.
He added, He showed me a picture of her and I was like 'That's a cute girl.'
"So the design came from that. He was like 'Yeah, that's my girlfriend,' and I was like 'Ah, that's cool.' As I was tattooing him we talked a lot about that.
"He talked about how great their relationship is and how he wanted to get an image of her.
"You know - not an exact picture but something that reminded him of her and I thought that was really cool, really sweet."
What do you think of the tattoo? Cute or a big mistake?
