One Direction Say Their Mums Think They Have Too Many Tattoos

The 'Little Things' band have revealed their parents aren't happy about all of their body art.

One Direction have admitted that their mums are worried about the band's growing collection of tattoos.

The 'Live While We're Young' singers have all had several tattoos over the past year, apart from band member Niall Horan, and say their mums have warned them about getting too much body art.

"My mum went crazy about the whole tattoo idea," One Direction star Liam Payne said on ITV's Daybreak this morning (31st January).

Zayn Malik also spoke about his own mum's feelings about his many tattoos, as well as putting to rest recent rumours that Simon Cowell has ordered them to slow down with the ink.

"Simon hasn't said anything, but our mums have been like, 'Maybe you're getting a bit too much'," Zayn admitted.

The band recently confirmed they are set to perform their new single , a cover of Blondie's 'One Way Or Another', at the BRIT Awards 2013 next month where they are also up for Best British Group.

"We will be nervous," Liam admitted. "It's mad just to be on the same stage as people like that. You know, we're still massively getting used to it, I feel."

The BRIT Awards 2013 will take place on 20th February and will also see performances from both Beyonce and Robbie Williams.
