Shawn Mendes loved a fan edit so much, he got it tattooed on him.

It all started last week when a fan created a photo featuring the crooner with a butterfly tattoo on his upper arm. The butterfly's right wing is a bouquet of wildflowers, and the original design was created by Chilean tattoo artist @macdreaper. Mendes responded to the edit, "Wait this is awesome, can u DM the drawing ??"   

The fan then shared screenshots of her DMs with Mendes, where she sent him the photo of the butterfly design. 

On Monday (July 22), Mendes was in Dallas, Texas, when he uploaded a photo to his Instagram story laying in a tattoo parlour, before revealing the final product of the butterfly in the exact same spot as the original fan edit.

The tattoo artist, Livia Tsang, uploaded her work on Mendes to Instagram. See it below.
