A small town tattoo shop in Maryland had quite the surprise Monday night when Louis Tomlinson and Zayn Malik of One Direction walked through the door.
RumorFix spoke with John Garancheski, one of the artists who worked on the boys, and he tells us exclusively that Tattooed Heart Studio had to lock up the shop in order to gives the boys privacy from local fans.
Garancheski tells RumorFix that several crazed 1D fans forced him to shut down the store and lock the door so they teen heartthrobs wouldn’t be bothered.
Although the Maryland based ink artist does not know the meaning behind the tats, he reveals that Louis got inked on him “a bomb, a spider web, and a bracelet put around his wrist that was made to look like a nautical rope,” adding that “Zayn got a comic punky rock kind of chick version based off of his girlfriend Perry.” Garancheski adds, “Zayn seemed like it was really important to him to get that image [of Perry]. He said they really miss each other because he’s been on the road a lot, but he didn’t get too personal about the relationship.”
And although he had no idea who they were when they walked into his studio, John tells us he ended up having a very pleasant time with the boy band members, revealing, “[Zayn and Louis] were very down to earth and fun and easy to hang out with. There was no pressure. It was really cool”
