We know you’ve all been waiting for this…Zayn Malik has finally given us a glimpse of the snake tattoo he got inked on his shoulder on October 11, 2013, and the thing is gigantic! Last week, we revealed that Zayn and Louis had gotten inked while in Aukland, New Zealand for One Direction’s Take Me Home tour, but at the time, Zayn said his tattoo was too sore to show. “I got a snake on my shoulder,” Zayn said during an interview in New Zealand. “It’s kind of tucked away, but it’s up there. It’s a bit sore at the moment.” Ever since then, we’ve been waiting for Zayn to show off the new ink, which he finally did during a show in Australia.
Thanks to a new photo uploaded to Twitter on October 17, in which Zayn and the other One Direction boys are performing live in Melbourne, Australia, we can see that Zayn Malik’s tattoo features a black and white image of a huge, fat snake slithering across his right shoulder…dangerously close to the tattoo of Perrie Edwards the singer has inked on his right bicep. Now that Zayn and Perrie are engaged, we’re wondering if she will have any say in Zayn Malik’s tattoo choices. Either way, Zayn has talked openly about his intention to ink a full sleeve tattoo on his right arm, and the new snake ink puts him well on his way to achieving that goal!
