One Direction hunk Zayn Malik now has a permanent reminder of his girlfriend Perrie Edwards after getting a tattoo of the Little Mix star on his arm.

The large design, which covers Malik's entire right bicep, is reportedly based on his own cartoon drawing and depicts Edwards wearing a beanie cap and low-slung jeans.

The What Makes You Beautiful hitmaker had the piece inked on Tuesday (25Jun13) while visiting Tattooed Heart Studios in Maryland with his bandmates Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson, who added tattoos of a bomb and a spiderweb to his body art collection.

Malik and Edwards have been dating for more than a year, but their relationship has been rocked by rumours of him cheating.
