Cheryl's boyfriend Liam Payne shares shirtless Instagram post, reveals shoulder tattoo

Liam Payne has posted a new steamy selfie while announcing plans to visit Las Vegas – and appeared to debut a new shoulder tattoo in the close-up snap.

The One Direction band member, who is currently dating Cheryl, posed for the selfie while shirtless, revealing an extravagant tattoo that reached his shoulder, indicating that the 23-year-old star has added yet another tattoo to his 17 other inkings, which include a lavish rose on his hand and a feather tattoo on his arm.

The singer, who is currently recording solo material in L.A. captioned the snap: " It's about to get lit #vegas," accompanied by several flame emojis.

Fans were quick to comment with confusion about Liam's new inking, with one writing: "Since when did he got a new tattoo??"

"You have a tattoo on your shoulder?" another asked.

Cheryl, 36, is as much of a fan of tattoos as her boyfriend, and recently had a simple patterned inked onto her chest which she revealed while enjoying an evening out with Liam at the Cannes Film Festival.

Speaking about her numerous tattoos, she previously told i-D Online: "It's like body art and I think it's reflective of someone's personality. I'm always drawn to people that have tattoos.

Liam and Cheryl have been dating since early 2016

"I don't know what it is really.  I think it's very much one of those things where you either like them and you're attracted to that sort of body art or you're not.  But I just am."

Speculation is currently rife that the happy couple, who began dating in early 2016, are expecting their third child together, and her former X Factor co-judge Simon Cowell did not discourage the reports after he was asked if the pair were trying for their first child. He told the Mirror: "I guess that's what happens when you are with someone.

"Cheryl would be an amazing mum. I have seen her with my son Eric and other kids over the years and she is incredible. She is very good with them. I think she is in a great place in her life right now. I had dinner with her a couple of months ago with Liam and they were great."
