That was quick! Zayn Malik debuted some new ink on his arm a couple of days after his split from Perrie Edwards. Could the singer be celebrating his new found freedom with the lotus tattoo?
Zayn Malik, 22, has a pretty impressive collection of tattoos on his body and he just added another one to the mix! The former boyband member stepped out in Hollywood, Calif. on Aug. 6 with a new lotus tattoo on his arm and the meaning behind it could signify he’s closing the door on his One Direction days and relationship with Perrie Edwards, 22.
There’s finally meaning behind the random picture Zayn tweeted on Aug. 4 of a lotus flower on top of piano keys! Not too long after he shared the photo, the 22-year-old was seen sporting a freshly inked lotus on his arm and it’s such a symbolic move. Lotus flowers usually symbolize rebirth and spiritual awakening and after all the crazy changes in his life, it sounds like Zayn is ready to start this new chapter in his life with his slate wiped clean!
As we previously reported, Zayn was definitely interested in adding a lotus flower to his collection of tattoos. An insider EXCLUSIVELY told HollywoodLife.com the singer was looking to put it over the tattoo of his ex-fiancé to cover it up. “He is planning on having his favorite tattoo artist turn it into a lotus flower,” the Zayn insider said. Getting a tattoo removal is pretty painful, so this is certainly the better option. But, it looks like Zayn decided otherwise and put the lotus on his other arm above the checkered tat. Regardless, it still looks good!
Zayn Promises ‘Amazing’ Music After Split From Perrie
Out with the old and in with the new, right? Even though Zayn was the one to end his relationship with Perrie, we have a feeling the singer has a ton of good material from the breakup for his new music. After all, the 22-year-old teased his fans on Twitter with messages like “Gonna get this done for you !! I promise this album will be amazing ..” and “Got something exciting coming soon :)!” So exciting!
