The One Direction tattoo collection is ever-growing (well, except for Niall Horan!), and fans most often want to know the meaning behind all the inky artwork.
In the new issue of Teen Vogue, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson shed a little bit of light on why they love to get tattoos.
Zayn explained, "They all have their own meaning," adding, "They all represent something, or did at some point!"
Louis' tattoos may be a little more random, as he explained, "To be honest, not many of them actually have any meaning."
He added, "I just like to look at them. I started with a silly stick man. And then I like skateboarding, so that's why I got that one. This is for the world tour. This 'Oops' is because I didn't like this line here, so I was like, 'Oops!' I love tea, and that's a compass pointing to home."
Harry seems to have a bit of an obsession with ink, saying, "If you've already got a tattoo, why not get another one? Especially if it's one little thing that reminds you of someone else."
As for Niall ever getting inked, Louis said, "Niall goes through stages. Sometimes he's like, 'Aw yeah, I might get one!' Then sometimes he's like 'I don't know.' I would be surprised if he did it."
We would be surprised too!
