Remember we told you about how last week, a Shawn Mendes super fan, Kayla (@nasaruins), posted two edited photos of him on Twitter with a — fake! — butterfly tattoo on his left arm.
“Shawn Mendes with a butterfly tattoo,” she tweeted. “I rest my case.” One day later, Mendes retweeted the photos, writing “Wait this is awesome, can u DM the drawing ??”
After a brief direct message exchange with Kayla, Mendes got ahold of the butterfly design, which was originally created by Chile-based tattoo artist, who goes by @macdreaper on Instagram.
Here’s the update: he loved the idea of the tattoo so much he made it permanent.
On Sunday night, tattoo artist Livia Tsang posted a photo of Mendes with the finished tattoo.
