The heartthrob had the large cartoon-style design etched on his right bicep back in June (13), and the Little Mix star admits she was thrilled he decided to mark their love in such a permanent way.
She tells Omg.yahoo.com, "It must be love, to be honest. When I'm away from him, I guess he can just take a look at his arm and remind him of me. So it's a lovely compliment, really. I love it, it's lovely."
Malik and Edwards have been dating for more than a year.
