Throughout his time in the spotlight, One Direction singer Liam Payne has definitely changed a lot since then. Fans watched as the singer grew up right before their eyes and had a major glo’ up! Since his rise to fame, the “Strip That Down” singer has racked up over 20 ink designs all over his body. When the band first started in 2010, he didn’t have any ink designs, and now, they pretty much cover his entire arms and hands at this point, and they’ve definitely become a huge part of him.

In fact, in November 2020, Liam showed off his collection of arm tats in a Hugo Boss eyewear campaign.
