Shawn Mendes got his first-ever tattoo, and it’s a meaningful one!
On Monday, the Treat You Better performer went to Chronic Ink in Toronto to get his inaugural ink, and it turned out great! Livia Tsang — AKA the artist who tatted the 17-year-old — took to Twitter to share a snap of the singer and his new tat (above)!
Ch-ch-check out a close-up of the ink (below)!
The hitmaker himself even admitted his new bodywork, posting:
The parlor documented Shawn’s session on Snapchat, sharing pictures and video of the big moment (below):
Mr. Mendes revealed that the tattoo is actually a meaningful one, with different parts representing different things! During the procedure, the brunette melted fans’ hearts everywhere when he admitted:
“The soundwave here that looks like buildings is actually an audio of my parents saying I love you.”
Ugh! Our hearts!
But Livia did point out that the tall, defined building on the Canadian crooner’s arm is an actual, famous skyscraper in Toronto, tweeting:
1) yes the CN tower is in it
2) No he did not cry

Awww! Shawn’s repping his parents’ love AND his roots! Too cute!
We also love that the tat itself is shaped like a guitar — do we even need to explain that one? — with the base featuring a beautiful, tree-lined waterfront.
What do U think of it, Perezcious readers?!
