The 'Gotta Be You' star has had two swallows inked on to either side of his chest.

One Direction star Harry Styles found time to get some new tattoos in between his commitments on The X Factor USA this week.

The 'What Makes You Beautiful' stars arrived back in America this week and performed live on the FOX talent show yesterday (8th November), during which Harry showed off two large new tattoos on his chest.

18 year-old Harry was pictured pulling down his t-shirt to show off the designs, of two swallows on either side of his chest, to bandmate Zayn Malik as they headed into a Los Angeles recording studio.

The 'One Thing' singer was earlier spotted visiting famous tattoo parlour Shamrock Tattoos in the city, where David Beckham has had several of his own pieces of body art inked.

During The X Factor USA this week the UK boy band performed both recent hit 'Live While We're Young' and their new single 'Little Things'.
