Eagle eyed followers of the One Direction stud were quick to spot his new ink after he changed his profile picture.

The teen heartthrob's itching is located on his left collarbone just above his chest.

He tweeted: 'For every1 asking what the new tatt means it says be true to who you are'.

One very lucky fan managed to get the 19-year-old to help her make a decision about what the tattoo she's planning to get done should say.

Probably expecting to go unnoticed as Zayn has 2,371,710 followers, Abbey Stylinson tweeted:

'@zaynmalik I LOVE ALL OF YOUR TATTOOS! im going to get one soon, should i get dare to dream, or whats meant to be will find its way'

To which Malik quickly replied:

'@harrys_bowties what's meant to be will find its way is cool , :)'

No afraid to brave the pain, this new itching means that the singer now has four tattoos.

The What Makes You Beautiful performer has his grandfather's name inked on his chest in Arabic.

He also has a Japanese symbol tattooed on his hip which means 'born lucky', and on his wrist he has the yin and yang symbol.
