It’s fair to say that we were all fairly surprised when Zayn Malik’s latest inking was unveiled. Mainly because instead of getting one of his usual doodles or a big old tattoo of Taylor Lautner in wolf form, the One Direction singer has gone and had a cartoon pic of Little Mix girlfriend Perrie Edwards permanently etched onto his arm. But while he seems pretty pleased with the result, fellow popstar Conor Maynard isn’t sure it was the best idea the Bradford Bad Boi has ever had.
From the amount of tatts popping up all over the bodies of various popstars at the moment, we’d kind of assumed there was some sort of secret inking club going on that you only get asked to join after you get a gold record or two. But apparently one singer who won’t be getting anyone’s pic tattooed on a body part is Conor, who reckons Zayn has made a pretty bold decision getting this latest inking.
“It’s a dangerous game doing that because if they break up,” C-Maynz told Bang Showbiz at the Silver Clef Awards this week. “[But] if he truly believes they’re going to be together forever then fair enough.
“If I got a tattoo I’d take on the whole fact that it’s on you for the rest of your life. Unless you got it removed, which isn’t the best thing.”
Erm, so it’s not really on you for life then, is it Conor?
“I’d only get something if I was 100 per cent sure,” he continued, considering the idea. “It has to mean something too. I don’t really like it when you see tattoos and you’re like, ‘Oh what does that mean? Oh, it’s just that.’”
What, like when people get their girlfriend’s faces tattooed onto their upper arms? Charming.
What do you think about all this – agree with Conor or think Zayn’s tatt is dead romantic?
