Friends forever? Maybe not. One Direction fans are totally freaking out because the ‘BUS 1’ tattoo Zayn Malik has on his hand looks like it’s being removed. It’s the tattoo he shares with Louis Tomlinson!
Zayn Malik, 22, and Louis Tomlinson, 23, have had some very public spats throughout 2015. Unfortunately, fans realize that their arguments on social media have taken a large toll on their friendship, and now they have reason to believe that Zayn has decided to remove the tattoo he and Louis share that reads “BUS 1.”
Sharing identical tattoos is a pretty big deal, so when Zayn and Louis decided to get matching ink on their bodies it was clear they would be brothers for life. Or would they? Sadly, there has been a lot of drama since Zayn announced he was leaving 1D behind, and it seems like his relationship with Louis has suffered the most.
A recent photo of Zayn’s “BUS 1” tattoo, the one he shares with Louis, appeared drastically faded and almost completely gone. Fans immediately freaked out because they thought he might be getting it removed, which was heartbreaking to think about. Fortunately Zayn chimed in on Twitter to let his fans know it’s just fading on it’s own and needs to be filled in, but still, it’s pretty telling that he hasn’t been managing the tattoo’s upkeep, isn’t it?
Fans have every right to freak out about this. They’ve been through so much since Zayn left, and it’s no surprising that they would assume he and Louis’ friendship was done. After all, they had a real nasty blow up on Twitter back in May 2015. See what they are saying below:
