It looks like Zayn Malik is rocking a brand new tattoo, and you’re not going to believe where he got it! Yep, the former One Direction member just posted a rare selfie on Instagram, and fans were quick to notice that in the pic, he had a new ink design on his lower cheek! Because of the angle, it’s hard to make out what it says, but some people are convinced that the new body art reads “Do More.”

Wow, getting a tattoo on your face is definitely a bold statement. And it turns out, he’s not the only celebrity to do it. From Justin Bieber to Halsey, there’s actually tons of stars who have decided to get something permanently inked onto their faces over the years. Check them all out…

Aaron Carter

Aaron Carter actually has more than one tattoo on his face. He has his girlfriend’s name — “Melanie” — inked above his eyebrow, three moons smack dab in the middle of his right cheek, the word “Love” on his other cheek and a Medusa portrait down the left side of his face.

“Medusa is my protector. If you want to come at me with some negativity, my Medusa will stare you in the eye and turn you into stone,” he told Entertainment Tonight.

Chris Brown

Fans were pretty shook when Chris Brown revealed that he had gotten a tattoo of an Air Jordan sneaker on his cheek. Based on his Instagram account, however, he’s recently covered it up with facial hair.


If you look closely at Halsey’s cheek (right by her ear), you can see that she has a tiny Queen of Diamonds tattoo. And it turns out, she has no plans to get any more tattoos on her face. While debuting the small ink, she wrote on Instagram, “Headed straight for the castle. @nal.tattoo thanks for my first (and only hopefully) face tattoo.”

Presley Gerber

Presley Gerber got the word “Misunderstood” tattooed onto his cheek in February 2020. And he isn’t here for people hating on the ink design.

“Most and a lot of people can get a face lifts, change genders, lip injections, etc and it’s offensive to say anything in today’s age but I get a little face tattoo and now people love to hate me…” he wrote on Instagram.

And a few months later, he added another piece of body art — the letters “L” and “A” — to his upper left cheek!

Amanda Bynes

Amanda Bynes got a small black heart tattooed onto her cheek in December 2019 — just a few months before she announced that she was engaged to a student from Los Angeles named Paul Michael.

Travis Barker

Since Travis Barker has tattoos all over his body (his arms, chest and neck are covered!), it’s not a shock that he’s got some on his face too. The rapper’s got three in total — the word “Blessed” under his eye, an anchor under the other eye and a star right above the word “Blessed.”

Justin Bieber

Bieber’s ink design is so small it’s hard to spot, but it’s right above his right eyebrow. It says “Grace” in script, and he added the tattoo to his enormous collection in 2019! The singer also has a small cross next to his eye, which his tattoo artist described as “a representation of his faith in Jesus and his journey with finding purpose in God.”

Jesy Nelson

Get this — Jesy Nelson has the same exact tattoo as Halsey! The former Little Mix member got a little ‘Q’ above a heart (representing the queen of hearts) inked right near her ear in December 2018.

Post Malone

Post Malone has tons of tattoos on his face — including a sword, barbed wire, the words “Stay Away,” the words “Always” and “Blessed” and more. He actually told GQ Magazine that the reason he got so many ink designs on his face is because he thinks he’s “[an] ugly-a** motherf**ker.”

“They maybe come from a place of insecurity,” he explained. “I don’t like how I look, so I’m going to put something cool on there so I can look at myself and say, ‘You look cool, kid,’ and have a modicum of self-confidence, when it comes to my appearance.”

Lil Xan

Lil Xan also has multiple face tattoos! He has his mom’s name — “Candy” — his birth year, the words “Soldier,” “Xanarchy,” “You” and “Lover,” an upside down cross and three Z’s! Most recently, he added the words “Memento mori” above his eyebrow after his friend and fellow rapper Miller tragically died in September 2018 due to an overdose. According to Insider, phrase translates to “Remember you will die.”

Since she covers it with makeup a lot, you may be shocked to learn that Kehlani has a small tattoo of a paper airplane on her cheek. She also has the words “Espíritu Libre” — which translates to “free spirit” — on her cheek right by her hair!

Wiz Khalifa

Wiz Khalifa‘s first tattoo on his face was of a nautical star, and after getting it he said he didn’t want any more in the area. Well, it looks like he must have changed his mind because he ended up getting a few more over the years, including a feather, a rose, his son Bash‘s name and more.
