The 'Can't Say No' hitmaker - who doesn't have any tattoos of his own - thinks Zayn is playing ''a dangerous game'' by getting an inking of his Little Mix star girlfriend's face on his right arm, because he will be stuck with it if they split.
Speaking at his Mastercard Priceless Gig at the Under the Bridge club in London on Thursday night (28.06.13), Connor exclusively told BANG Showbiz: ''It's a dangerous game doing that because if they break up. If he truly believes they're going to be together forever then fair enough.
''I don't think I would ever get another person. Just my face on my face - my face isn't going to leave me is it, my face isn't going anywhere, is it?''
The 20-year-old singer would carefully think about getting a tattoo and if he was going to go under the needle he would make sure the design was meaningful.
He said: ''If I got a tattoo I would take on the whole fact that it is on you for the rest of your life. Unless you got it removed - which isn't the best thing, it's not ideal.
''I'd only get something if I was 100 per cent sure. It has to mean something too. I don't really like it when you see tattoos and you're like, 'Oh what does that mean? Oh, it's just that.' ''
