People think Zayn Malik’s new tattoo looks like a rat’s tail

It's supposed to be a rose...

Zayn Malik has debuted a new tattoo, but fans aren’t sure what to make of it.

The singer took to Instagram to show off new ink on the back of his head, which is supposed to be a rose with a long stem.

However, at first glance, it looks like a rodent’s tail, and several fans have pointed this out on the post.


One fan commented, “Looks like a rat tail”, while another said, “I thought this was a rat tail at first”, with one user simply commenting with a rat emoji.

Other eagle-eyed fans noticed that it also looks like a stingray, with one commenting, “Lmao I thought this was a stingray at first until I looked at the pic again & zoomed in. I’m deceased”, and another simply saying, “Looks like a stingray”.

Some fans showed their distaste for his new ink, commenting, “Dang that’s ugly”, and, “The fuck is this bro?”

However, others were more kind, with one noting that the placement was spot on, and another calling it “beautiful”.

Zayn also shared a pic of the tattoo in progress.


Meanwhile, the singer recently confirmed that his second album is finished, after teasing snippets of new music last month.

The LP will be a follow-up to 2016’s ‘Mind of Mine’, which shot straight to the top of the UK charts on its release.

Malik has already released two singles set to appear on his second album, in the form of the Sia-featuring ‘Dusk Till Dawn’ and ‘Still Got Time’ – a collaboration with rapper PartyNextDoor

Earlier this month, Malik released a remix of August Alsina’s track ‘Don’t Matter’ after an internal leak caused it to surface online.
