|Permanent marker: One Direction's Zayn Malik gets shirtless to reveal himself in a tattoo shop in New Zealand, where he had a new tattoo|
If there wasn't enough hysteria surrounding One Direction already, Zayn Malik just added to it.
The 20-year-old whipped off his shirt and told his fans that he had added a new ink design to his already tattooed body.
Malik posted a picture on his Twitter page showing off his bare chest next to a much larger and heavily inked tattoo artist.
Although Zayn didn't reveal what the new design is, it is rumoured to be a silver fern, which is the national symbol of New Zealand.
In the photograph the X Factor finalist is seen smiling proudly while wearing taping and bandages on his neck and shoulder.
It was only at the start of this month that the teen heartthrob had another etching done on his left collarbone.
He tweeted: 'For every1 asking what the new tatt means it says be true to who you are'.
The What Makes You Beautiful performer now has five tattoos in total including his grandfather's name on his chest in Arabic.
He also has a Japanese symbol on his hip which means 'born lucky', and on his wrist he has the yin and yang symbol.
