Liam Payne Does Something Cool, Gets Tattooed By Nikko Hurtado

"Some times I don't know who my clients are until after my daughter flips out about it." It's okay, Nikko. We understand.

To be fair,  he doesn't really strike us as a One Direction kinda guy. 

That's right, Liam Payne- 1/5 (or 1/4? I honestly don't know anymore) of boy band One Direction has officially gained a right of passage into the tattoo world, as he was recently tattooed by one of the masters of modern tattooing- Nikko Hurtado. 

Hurtado posted this photo to Instagram, with a pretty hilarious caption explaining that he didn't really know who Payne was until his daugther- who's apparently a big fan- freaked out about it. He continues on to applaud the boy-bander for sitting so well. Good for you, Liam.

"Hey some times I don't know who my clients are until after my daughter flips out about it. 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" 

Shortly after, he posted this photo to his Instagram, showing off the impressive start to a killer black and grey clock-themed sleeve on Payne.

Hate to say it, but I can't wait to see the rest of this sleeve pan out. Anything Hurtado touches turns to gold- even super boy-banders.
