Zayn Malik is a self-confessed bad boy.
Despite being part of squeaky clean boy band One Direction, Zayn likes to think of himself as a bit of a rebel and feels he is ''misunderstood'' by people.
According to the Daily Star newspaper, he said: ''I am a bit of a bad boy. I like to use the term 'misunderstood.' I have tattoos and I mess around. That's part of my image, so it's cool.''
Zayn is not the only member of the group with tattoos, with Harry Styles - who already has several pieces of body art including a star, the letter A, and a clothes hanger - recently getting the words ''Things I can'' inked on the inside of one arm, and ''Things I Can't'' on the other while in the Irish capital Dublin.
Harry wasn't the only member of the successful group to get tattoos in the city.
Louis tweeted: ''So Me and Liam joined the crew and got two screw tattoo's on our ankles, now we all have it except Niall! Come on @NiallOfficial.''
However, Niall Horan is said to have a fear of needles and refused to join the other boys as they got inked.
