Fans freaked out when they saw Shawn Mendes' first tattoo, but we were all wondering what the meaning was behind it for a while. During an interview with Ellen, she asked him about the tattoo he got, which resembles a guitar. We all thought it had to do with music, but there's so much more behind it.
Shawn said, "I had this idea for like a year before I got the tattoo. It’s the woods here and a reflection on water, a sound wave connecting to the city, being Toronto. Actually, the sound wave is my parents and my sister saying 'I love you,' so it’s that connection between home, work, and family."
That is so incredible! As a fan of tattoos, it's so cool that he incorporated all of those things into one tattoo.
