People make stupid mistakes sometimes. Scratch sometimes. All the time. No one is exempt, and certainly not the pop prince Zayn Malik. Besides singing, quitting One Direction, and feuding with producer Naughty Boy, Zayn's known for his tattoo coverage. He's also recently been in Los Angeles hanging out with Gigi Hadid, supermodel girlfriend and Real Housewives of Beverly Hill's Yolanda Foster's daughter.
Though Malik's tattoos seem to blend into a mess, one in particular stood out to Gigi. It is a tattoo of Zayn's former fiancée and partner of four years Perrie Edwards, otherwise known as a member of One Directions' female counterpart, Little Mix.
A faceless Zayn can be seen holding Gigi's cats while topless in a post on her Instagram account, but the tattoo obviously bothered her enough to crop it out. Luckily it appears Zayn has a thing for blondes, so it can probably be easily modified.
