Zayn Malik may have to face some tattoo regret soon.
The former boy bander of One Direction fame made fans go crazy on Friday night when he turned to Instagram to show off some new ink on the side of his head.
The tattoo of a bird soaring high was surrounded by flowers and had the letters “M.O.M” written across. It extended halfway down the side of Malik’s head.
The 23-year-old further ignited the internet’s frenzy with his cryptic caption “Like I would.”
Those words just happen to be the title of a new track from the now-solo artist.
Adding to the mystery is that “M.O.M” could reference the name of his album “Mind of Mine.”
Naturally, the biggest question is whether the bird art is real or not.
If real, it joins several other tattoos on the “Pillowtalk” singer’s body, including another image of a flying bird on his neck.
Malik currently rocks heavily tatted arm sleeves, along with tattoos on his back and chest.
The photo was further revealing, showing off One Direction memorabilia in the background and a clean shaven look for the crooner, who is known for his crazy-colored locks —most recently they were pink.
Still, fans were only concerned with the possibility of Malik having permanently marked his face.
“Why your beautiful face?? Why??? Don’t ruin it,” one fan furiously tweeted out.
