Will Zayn Malik ever stop going to the tattoo parlour? The young One Direction star seems to be slowly working towards covering his whole body with ink. His latest design is of a wolf, which he's had tattooed onto his shin - while his girlfriend Perrie Edwards watched.

Zayn Malik has added yet another tattoo to his collection.

And his latest is probably the most shocking yet.

The 20-year-old has had a huge wolf design - with beaded feathers - inked onto his left shin by tattoo artist Paul O'Connor.

Zayn was joined by his Little Mix girlfriend Perrie Edwards in the parlour, who watched on for two hours as he got the £150 design inked onto his newly-shaved leg.

The boybander first displayed his new body art at 1D's big announcement last month but now more photos of Zayn under the needle have emerged.

Paul - who works at Tattoo Magic in Weymouth, Dorset - took a while to realise the pair were famous.

He revealed to the Bournemouth Echo: "I didn’t have a clue who Zayn and Perrie were at first. One of our customers recognised them.

"My wife put it on Facebook and within five minutes we had screaming schoolgirls outside on the pavement."

Zayn and Perrie, 19, were down south to visit the Little Mix star's mum on her birthday - which you'd think could've been awkward considering the 1D singer was accused of cheating back in January.

But it seems despite their rocky past, the pair are pretty smitten.

Paul, 51, added: "They were very loved up. They were both really good and signed lots of autographs.

"Perrie loved the tattoo, she didn’t have one but she said she’s thinking about getting one."

Zayn recently revealed that Perrie is a fan of his inkings.

He told Now magazine: "Oh yeah! She likes the whole rock’n'roll look. She likes my tatts."

It ‘s a god job really, as it seems Zayn is working on covering his whole body with tattoos.

The young star has a whole host of other designs, including the word Zap! in huge letters on his arm, a fern on his neck, a microphone up his right forearm, crossed fingers, a bird and a skull.

He added to Now: "I want to fill my entire right arm up to my elbow to start.

"I’ve got loads of ideas. I draw as well. I’m more addicted to coming up with the ideas of what I can get tattooed rather than the actual tattoo itself."
