Zayn Malik has added to his collection of tattoos with a new design - on his face.

But fans have been left wondering whether it is a tribute to his mum Trisha or a reference to his new album title - "Mind of Mine."

Posting on Instagram, the former One Direction star posed with the design - on his temple - showing an intricate bird design with the letters 'M.O.M' inked around it.

"Mind of Mine" is set to be released on 25 March, one year since Zayn's departure from the boy band.
