Zayn Malik has tatted himself with Arabic ink dedicated to his sisters, Doniya, Waliyha and Safaa, but what do they say?
But what are they? And when did he get them? Here’s what we know…
Zayn has a number of tattoos in Arabic, as he is of Pakistani descent.
He famously has ‘Walter’ (his grandfather’s name) on his chest, as well as ‘Yaser’ (his dad’s name) behind his ear, both in Arabic - so it’s no surprise he dedicated some more to his sisters.
Along his left arm, the ‘Pillowtalk’ hitmaker has his youngest sister, Safaa’s, name just above his wrist.
Waliyha is then inked in the middle of his forearm, whilst his eldest sibling, Doniya, has her name on his upper forearm, just under his inner elbow.
The former One Direction star is super close to his sisters, so it only makes sense that he has honoured them in a way that fits his unique look!

A fan took to Twitter to praise Zayn for getting his sisters’ names inked on his arm, before others pointed out that he already had them for a while.
The pictures they shared showed the 'Still Got Time’ singer sporting blonde hair, which means he’s had the tatts since at least 2017!
