If you've spent the past three days on this planet staring just above Zayn Malik's right ear then that's FINE, because we've been doing exactly the same thing to try and work out whether that new face tattoo of his is the real deal or not.
Zehhnnn revealed on Saturday that he'd had a fresh design inked onto the side of his face in tribute to his new album Mind Of Mine, but according to resident 1D tattoo expert Kevin Paul, it might actually just be a temporary thang.
If anyone knows One Direction tattoos, it's their fave inker Kevin Paul, and having already predicted Zayn regretting the ink if it IS real, he's now gone on to admit that he has a feeling it's a fake tattoo anyway.
Taking to Twitter to give his verdict, Kevin wrote that he'd "be shocked if it is real", explaining: "So everybody is clear I don't think Zayn Malik has really had that tattooed on his head".
Insisting that he's still "a big fan of his new music" and reckons Zayn is "the coolest one in the band", Kevin went on to tell a fan: "It looks fake and I don't think he would be that silly", adding that it would be seriously painful to remove, too. Ouch.
Can someone run at Mr Malik with a wet wipe and give him a scrub, please? WE NEED TO KNOW.
C'mon Zaynnnn, tell ussssss.
Are you thinking that the MOM tattoo is the real deal, or has Zayn been busy with a fine liner? Let us know with a tweet to @Sugarscape.
