Take a moment to prepare yourselves for this bit of news: it appears as though Zayn Malik went and got himself a tongue piercing. While we're not entirely sure whether or not Zayn's hardware is real, the photo evidence is piling up that the surprising new accessory could be permanent.
As we wait for Zayn to take more Miley Cyrus-esque selfies showcasing his tongue, we thought it would be fun to match the other guys of One Direction to the piercings we think they would rock best. Since Zayn called dibs on a tongue ring, we found cool edits of Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson, and Liam Payne rocking other extreme styles, along with tons more tattoos and even some punk rock makeup!

When fans first saw a flash of silver in Zayn's mouth during this weekend's 1D concert, they thought: "Could he possibly have a tongue ring?"
