Ok, “head” tattoo is a little bit of an extreme description (we’re just quoting the source, here), but Zayn Malik DID get a tattoo above his shoulders.
Zayn got the ink as a tribute to his dad. He says that his dad is a big source of inspiration to his music. In full, he says “My dad’s a hard worker and he has strong values. He was a personal trainer and is solidly bui;t, and he used to go on at me all the time about being a good student and getting the right education. He wanted the best for me, and I wanted to please him in return…. I wanted to show him, as much as everyone else, that I could do it.”
The tattoo is his dad’s name, “Yaser,” written in script lettering behind his right ear. Here’s a picture of the fresh ink:
Zayn is very close to his family, they’re a big part of his life, and he even bought his mother a house. Zayn says that “She’s just a part of everything and she’s really cool, man. I love my mum.” He went on to say that his parents help him find a sort of “normalcy” in the pop-star life, and that they keep him “grounded.”
