One Directioner Niall Horan Finally Gave In and Got a (Fake) Tattoo!

One Directioner Niall Horan Finally Gave In and Got a (Fake) Tattoo!
By | On October 12, 2013

It was only a matter of time before Niall Horan finally gave in to peer pressure and joined in on all the tattoo fun with his inked-up One Direction bandmates! The previously un-inked singer posted an Instagram picture online on October 11 and in it, you can see what appears to be a brand-spanking-new fern tattoo on Niall’s forearm. The caption of the pic reads: “Came, saw and conquered @deodevine @louteasdale, Gemma, Liam,” with the other four names apparently representing the other four arms in the picture. The only problem is…the fern tat is probably a fake 🙁 According to one report, the temporary tats were a gift from a fan named Renee, and while that girl is stoked that her gift actually made contact with Niall’s skin, we’re a little disappointed that it’s not there to stay.

One Direction is currently in New Zealand as part of their epic eight-month Take Me Home tour, and what better way for Niall and his buddies to celebrate than to get New Zealand-inspired tattoos? The matching black fern tattoos are relatively small and are inked on the inside of their wrists – Niall’s is on his right – and the symbols represent the national emblem of New Zealand, which we think is a pretty cool way to commemorate the band’s success during this leg of their tour. Rihanna also paid tribute to New Zealand during her Diamonds tour this week, getting a traditional Maori tribal tat inked on her hand and arm with…prepare yourselves…a mallet and chisel. Makes Niall’s fern tattoo sound a little wimpy, doesn’t it?

Although the rest of the One Direction boys have been busy racking up the tats, Niall has always maintained his desire to stay tattoo-free, and when his bandmates all hit up a tattoo shop in Glen Burnie, Maryland back in August, the Irish singer reportedly took a stroll around the block instead of going under the needle. Afterward, he took to Twitter to say: “By the way I didn’t get a tattoo! Not plannin [to] either.”

Back in August, Niall had a fake tattoo of game show host James Corden’s face inked on his butt for an appearance on “A League of Their Own.” Apparently, Niall had previously wanted to get a tat on his derriere, but “the tattoo artist said it was too squidgy.” According to Corden, “We made a thing on the show that he’s the only member of the band without a tattoo. I said to him we’ve got this little idea of putting a tattoo of my face on your body. Niall went, ‘You should put it on my arse.’ We tattooed it on his buttock – it took him three weeks to get rid of it.” We have to say Niall, we are MUCH more fond of the fern tattoo!
