Shawn Mendes got a unique butterfly tattoo on his bicep this week, after a fan posted an edited photo of the singer rocking the art, and encouraged him to add to his ink collection.
According to Entertainment Tonight, Mendes exchanged handful of direct messages with the fan, who revealed that the image was by Chilean artist @macdreaper. Both Mendes and his tattoo artist Livia Tsang took to Instagram this week to show off the new butterfly design. Once Mendes unveiled his new tat, @macdreaper posted his original design to Instagram.
“Thank you very much for all the messages of love that you have sent me and for appreciating and sharing my art,” he captioned the photo.
“For those who have asked me, I am located in Santiago de Chile. I invite you to continue reviewing and sharing my art.”
