We were so distracted by One Direction going Gangnam Style on the NRJ music awards red carpet last night, that we almost missed a certain new addition to Louis Tomlinson's body.

Yup, Luigi T treated us all to a flash of his brand new tattoo.

Joining the little stickman skateboarder, 'OOPS' and compass, Louis' latest inking features a rather ferocious looking bird, seen here peeking out from underneath his sleeve.

Now, we're not ones to judge - we leave that part to you - but we would like to draw your attention to something Louis said in an interview back in February of last year.

"I’m scared of birds and pigeons," he told Vervegirl. "I can’t stand them. And one once flew into my bathroom window. I went in to have a wee, minding my own business and 'WHOA... there’s a bird in my bathroom!"

ERM...make of that what you will. What do you think of Luigi's new inking?
