Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, and Louis Tomlinson of One Direction have been together for a while now, and with the release of their second album, many fans may wonder how much longer the boy band will last.
According to The Guardian, there are seven phases of a boy band, and One Direction are already in the third phase: "That inking feeling." With Harry, Zayn, and Liam getting more and more tattoos, the boys seem to be inking themselves up because their lives are no longer their own. After becoming stars, the boys' lives have become public property of sorts.
Sadly, the sixth stage is The Split, but that's a ways off yet, and there is always the revival to look forward to afterwards.
Do you think that Harry Styles and the boys will be like other boy bands of the past and go through the same phases as they did? Is the fact that they have been increasing the amount of tattoos they have a sign of their demise?
