Los Angeles: Former One Direction member Zayn Malik has shown off a new hairstyle and three new tattoos, including one dedicated to his upcoming album.

The “Pillowtalk” hitmaker took to his Instagram account to debut the new inking, an intricate bird with the letters “M.O.M” inked around it, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

At first glance, it may seem the former One Direction star has tattooed a sweet tribute to his mother Trisha, but on closer inspection, it is more likely to be linked to his new album title, Mind of Mine.

The pictures posted on social media also show off two new neck tattoos — one, a swallow bird similar to what his former bandmate Harry Styles has on his chest and the other, a simple flower.

Fans of the chart-topping boy band may still be reeling over Zayn's departure from the group a year ago but will be pleased by the 23-year-old singer's recent upload — as a One Direction surfboard can clearly be seen in the background.
