If you were secretly hoping for a Zerrie reunion, we have some bad news for you. A year to the date exactly since Zayn Malik and Perrie Edwards broke off their engagement on August 4, 2015, it looks like Zayn – who is now happily dating Gigi Hadid – is going to extremes to get rid of reminders of his ex. In new Snapchat pics posted by Gigi, it appears that Zayn has been working on covering up the rather large portrait of Perrie he once got prominently inked on his right arm.
While we were gushing over seeing Zayn in the kitchen yesterday, keen-eyed fans noticed that the ink at the top of his arm was much darker than it was before, signaling that he may be getting different designs added to his sleeve.
For reference, here's an older photo that shows the Perrie portrait (on the left side) more clearly:
We're feeling conflicted here: after Zerrie's breakup, one of the first things that we thought was, "wait, what's going to happen to that huge tattoo?!" But now that he's undoing his permanent decision around their exact breakup anniversary, it feels a little harsh!
