Those crazy One Direction kids are at it again! Getting tattoos, rejecting condoms…you never know what they’re going to do next.
Following their sold out gig at Madison Square Garden, it seemed the One Direction kids wanted a little something to remember it by, as both Zayn Malik and Louis Tomlinson got tattooed by artist John Bahel shortly thereafter in their hotel room.
As you can see, the boys sat very nicely for their new body art. Behel tweeted the above photos, saying, “I usually don’t make house calls but made an exception for #onedirection #zaynmalik #louistomlinson and before this shit storm starts, yes I am professionally trained and licensed and abided by all cross contamination and sterilization standards.”
Zayn’s tattoo has since been revealed to be a simple “MSG” across his wrist; Tomlinson’s may or may not be the same design. And it’s hardly the first ink they’ve gotten, either. That’s what makes them beautiful.
And in other, more sexual One Direction news, the band has rejected condoms…kind of. According to Sky News, the band turned down a lucrative deal to promote condoms in the US after deciding it was a little too “mature” for their fans. “While the boys didn’t sneer at the money, they felt their fans were slightly too young for this type of project,” said a “source.” “They are promoting dolls and games, so that is the age group who are buying their products. The boys remain very candid about supporting the use of condoms if asked in interviews.”
If they think their high school and even middle school aged fans don’t need to be educated about safe sex, they are seriously fooling themselves, but I can see where they are coming from, in that the “One Erection” jokes would probably be endless. That said, I’m glad they support condoms in general, because a lot of kids look up to them…kids who are bound to start having sex at one point or another, at which point it might be too late to start educating them about condoms. Hooray for safe tattoos and safe sex! The boys of One Direction are the best role models ever.
