Liam Payne debuts his arrows at a free gig in New York

One Direction star Liam Payne has added a new design to his tattoo collection. 

The singer - who already has 'Everything I ever wanted, but nothing that I'll ever need' scrawled across his forearm, a small screw on his ankle and 'Only time will tell' written on his wrist - displayed a new set of arrows during the lads' Today Show performance in New York.

Fans have since been speculating about the meaning of the 19-year-old's latest etching on Twitter, with some believing he's had a chevron inked for each of his bandmates.

'Okay, This Is What I've Been Thinking @Real_Liam_Payne New Tattoo Has 5 Arrows. In 1D There's 5 Boys. And They're All Going In @ONEDIRECTION,' wrote one.

Harry Styles, 18, and Louis Tomlinson, 20, have also revealed new body art since the boys landed in the US, but Niall Horan, 19, has no plans to hit the parlour any time soon.

'I've got better things to do in my spare time than getting a tattoo,' he tells Hollyscoop.

We wonder if he'll change his mind.
