Adam Levine Debuts Massive Mermaid Back Tattoo (PHOTO)

Posted on

If you haven’t been keeping up with Adam Levine‘s body art, here’s an important update: The Maroon 5 frontman now has a giant mermaid inked on his back!

PEOPLE’s 2013 Sexiest Man Alive debuted his fresh tattoo on Instagram Monday, as he was getting inked by his go-to artist, Bryan Randolph from Spider Murphy’s Tattoo in San Rafael, California.

“If you ever want a tattoo and you don’t get it from @bryanrandolph …you’re nuts. He’s the DUDE,” Levine captioned the photo above.

In the snap, the 36-year-old star is actually getting another tat on his lower back, but this is the first shirtless photo we’ve seen of the mermaid, who is holding a skull.

We did some digging, and one week ago Levine’s wife Behati Prinsloo shared a snap working out with her man, where you can see a glimpse of the mythical creatures.

But as of seven weeks ago (like we said, we’re pro Instagram stalkers), the mermaid wasn’t there, according to Prinsloo’s Instagram. She shared a photo cuddling with her man in bed, who is shirtless and minus mermaid.

While the mermaid is pretty epic, Levine told PEOPLE that the most meaningful tattoos to him are the “222” on his forearm (his “lucky number”), and the word “mom” in the middle of his other arm.
