Brantley Gilbert is a country singer. That’s probably the first thing he’d want you to know about him. As for the second thing? Well, check out his back.

The “Bottoms Up” singer got a new tattoo on Monday that covers most of his back and also underscores just how passionately he feels about the U.S. Constitution’s provision regarding the right to bear arms.

As Gilbert, 30, explained on Instagram on Tuesday, “I wanted to take my support of the 2nd amendment to another level, so my boy Carl Grace came by the house and hooked me up yesterday!!!”

The tattoo simply reads “Amendment” from one shoulder blade to the next, with the text below reading, “A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.”

In November, Gilbert announced that he was engaged to Amber Cochran, a schoolteacher.
