Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson visited a tattooist together at the weekend

Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne got inked together on Saturday.

The One Direction singers followed in band mates Harry Styles and Zayn Malik's footsteps by having small screws etched on their bodies - and now they want Niall Horan to brave the tattooist's chair so they can all show off matching tatts.

'So Me and Liam joined the crew yesterday and got two screw tattoo's on our ankles , now we all have it except Niall !Come on @NiallOfficial,' Tweeted Louis, 20.

Niall, 19, replied: '@Louis_Tomlinson ok I'll give into you ! I'll get it done ! Jesus! Have ya quite finished ? #neglect hahahaha.'

It seems 19-year-old Liam's decision to get his tattoo was a spur of the moment one, as his older sister Ruth ended up having to ask her Twitter followers if they knew what he'd had done.

Louis' girlfriend Eleanor Calder, 20, reassured Ruth that the boys' inkings were very discreet.

'@RuthPayne0990 Don't worry they're tiny! Like tiny little plus signs xx,' Tweeted Eleanor.
