Liam Payne


What time is it, Liam Payne? It's time for another tattoo!

The 22-year-old One Direction singer appears in a photo with tattoo artist Nikko Hurtado that the latter posted Wednesday, saying that over the past few days, he has been giving the pop star new ink. He shared another pic of his still-unfinished creation—identical arm sleeves, running between his elbows and wrists, showing two large clocks displaying 11:56 with a smaller one in each showing 8:11, above several cogs.

"Hey sometimes I don't know who my clients are until after my daughter flips out about it," Hurtado wrote. "Was an honor tattooing @fakeliampayne from #onedirection the last few days. Did a rework on his hand and started something new on his forearm. Tough dude sat like a champ. @blackanchorcollective."

"What I started yesterday on @fakeliampayne," he said, alongside his pic of the tattoos. "Still need work. Top watch is just laid out not complete yet. Fun tattoo and fun sleeve to start. Can't wait for the next sitting."

Naturally, Hurtado's tattoo parlor, Black Anchor Collective in Hesperia, CA, works got bombarded with calls after he posted the pics of Payne.

"Liam is not getting tattooed at the shop, so stop calling," read a message posted on the shop's Instagram page. "If you're under 18, you're not allowed in the shop anyway."

Payne also has several other older tattoos, including a big arrow pattern resembling Chevron's logo on his right forearm, Egyptian hieroglyphics and a long feather on his arm, as well as various slogans, such as "Only time will tell..."

He also has a tattoo of roses on his left hand, which matches a huge roses tattoo his new girlfriend and The X Factor judge Cheryl Fernandez-Versini, 32, has on her butt and back.
