One Direction: 'Our mums went crazy about all the tattoos'
Thursday 31 January 2013
Pop idols One Direction have revealed their mothers have been getting the needle over their dedication to tattoos.
The group, who were brought together on the 2010 series of the X Factor, have dozens of tattoos between them with Harry Styles being the biggest fan of body art.
Liam Payne told ITV's Daybreak his mother "went crazy about the whole tattoo idea", but bandmate Zayn Malik laughed off stories that X Factor supremo Simon Cowell was upset about it.
He said: "Simon hasn't said anything but our mums have been like, 'maybe you're getting a bit too much'."
Styles said the group's recent visit to Ghana for Comic Relief had been "amazing".
He said: "We all kind of went out there not really knowing what to expect and then we all came back ... just kind of going, 'that was the best thing we've ever done'."
Malik, whose relationship with Little Mix star Perrie Edwards has seen him hit the headlines recently, said of the trip: "It kind of put things into perspective for me ... you go over there and you actually see people that are actually dealing with real problems and, you know, just having to carry on every day and keep going, so, yeah, just a general sense of putting things into perspective for me."
