Zayn Malik gave us all heart attacks when he shared a drop-dead-gorgeous selfie to his Instagram account on Monday night. It’s always nice to be treated to a look at his lovely face, but he also made our jaws drop, thanks to that head tattoo he made sure to highlight.

The singer showed off the huge design he has on the side of his head in the post, as well as a sleek new hairstyle — a mohawk with his sides completely shaved. But hello, head ink!

The “Pillow Talk” singer first debuted the head tattoo back in April so in case you were wondering if it’s real or not, let’s take this as confirmation it totally is. Zayn has more than 60 tattoos and some of his famous designs include his girlfriend Gigi Hadid‘s eyes on his chest, a huge snake on his shoulder, the word “Zap”on his arm, a rose on the back of his head, and a tiger on his upper left arm.

The singer also famously got a tribute tattoo to his ex-fiancé, Little Mix singer Perrie Edwards, on his right arm in 2013 when they were still together, but he has since covered it up.

Although this is his first real face tattoo, he tricked fans into thinking he got one back in 2016 but it turned out to be fake! He posted a selfie displaying a bird with a floral background and the acronym “M.O.M.” for his new album, Mind of Mine, but later revealed the tattoo was temporary during a live stream.

So although that one turned out to be fake, this big design isn’t! This new look comes one day after the 25-year-old gave us all the feels by posting a pic of his old sneakers and jacket from the “1D days.”

In the photo, you can see “1 Billion Views, DTD” written on the sneakers, which he announced he was mailing out to some fans in honor of his song “Dusk Till Dawn” getting one billion views. The mems.
