Why One Direction’s Niall Horan Is Feeling A Little Left Out

One Direction‘s Niall Horan has found himself as the odd one out of the group due to his reluctance to get involved in a certain macho past time.

While bandmates Harry Styles, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson currently boast a whopping 132 tattoos between them, the cherub-faced Irishman remains completely ink-free. But why?

19-year-old Niall’s decision to resist peer pressure and ensure his delicate young skin remains unblemished may seem like an odd one (think of all of those bromantic trips to the tattoo parlour he’s missed out on!), but now we know the truth.

In full embarrassing mum mode, Mrs Maura Horan has revealed Niall’s secret phobia to the world.

Speaking to Star magazine, she said of her son: ‘He has no interest in tattoos. He’d be too afraid of the pain!’ Brilliant.

Maura did manage to up Niall’s flailing street cred a tiny bit with her next comment, though. Apparently, her son’s so busy touring with the 1D boys, flirting with leggy Victoria’s Secret models and hanging with Katy Perry that she hardly knows where he is one day to the next!

‘I never know where he is or what he is doing’, she admitted, before adding: ‘But he will always get back to me.’

Mummy Horan is fast becoming one of our favourite showbiz gossips. Keep up the good work, Mrs H!
