Malik, 20, posted a photograph of the inking, etched by his tattooist Louis F Perez III, on photo-sharing website Instagram, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
Later, the tattoo artist posted a picture of his work on his official page and captioned it: "Made sure my homey was strapped."
However, the comment was deleted after some of his fans disliked it.
This is not the first time Malik, member of One Direction band, got inked. One of his tattoos also includes a sketch of his fiancee Perry Edwards.
