T as in Troy?

Zayn Malik, the artist formerly known as "Zayn from One Direction", stepped out with a couple of shiny new tattoos this week, including a small 'T' behind his ear area.

But we needed to know - what does the 'T' stand for?

So, we asked you guys for some ideas on our Twitter page...



...and you certainly came through with some truly outlandish theories!

First up, there were the obvious One Direction fans, hoping this was a sign that they should meet up, clear the air and get the band back together.





Well, we think that's what they meant anyway...

Then there's the 1D shippers, endlessly searching for the truth.




Seems legit.

Then there's the various Troy/Troye tribute theories.




Breaking free at last.

Lots of people ended up plugging this undisputed banger:



Can't confirm whether Zayn's heard it though...

These ones were pretty mature. 





(and pretty funny tbf).

But most people seemed to think Zayn was paying tribute to his fave artist, whoever that may be...









We're sure he's a fan of all of them really guys.

But, at the end of the day, there can only be one winner and we think we have been able to identify exactly what Zayn's 'T' stands for.

No more debates - this is the one.



What a bop!
