While the cat’s away the mouse will play right? Apparently Zayn Malik thinks so and while his girlfriend Perrie Edwards is busy working in America, he’s only gone and got himself another tattoo….. and a big one at that!

The One Direction star is turning his body into a bit of a gallery for talented tattoo artists and another inking has been unveiled this evening on Twitter.

Zayn is in the middle of a week off from all things work related and today he journeyed down to Brighton to visit Bob Done’s studio, Magnum Opus, and had a dark and scary skull drawn on his left shoulder.

The skull is wearing a quirky looking top hat, has horns and is smoking a cigar.

Bob shared a photo of the tattoo on Twitter with the caption:

“Just tattooed a snazzy little skull on my homeboy @zaynmalik thanks dude! See you soon! #onedirection…”

Zayn has had eight tattoos previously and the inkings include a playing card, a microphone, a Yin Yang symbol and a pair of crossed fingers. He has now added a skull to the list.

Malik follows in the footsteps of his bandmate Louis Tomlinson, who unveiled two new tattoos yesterday, one on his chest and one on each ankle.

One Direction fans don’t seem to be very appreciative of the excessive body art though and one tweeted:

“Every time the boys get an off they get a new tattoo. I think they should be on tour all year long. @zaynmalik stop already :(”

Another added:

“@zaynmalik For god’s sake, could you please stop with the tattoos already? What’s next? A tattoo on your face? I worry about you, bro <3”

What do you think Directioners? Have Louis and Zayn went too far this time? Leave your comments below….
