UPDATE: Adam Levine took to his Instagram Stories late Wednesday to reveal — mostly for his mother’s benefit — that the ink he sported on his face Tuesday night while out in Miami was not permanent.
“This message is for my mother: I do not have a tattoo on my face,” he said in a selfie video (watch below). “Those that know me know that I’m too vain — I’m too f—ing vain to get a tattoo on my face. I’ll tattoo the rest of this, but no, the face has gotta stay the same.”
Adam Levine showed off his latest tattoo on Tuesday, and spoiler alert: It’s on his face. (But as he revealed on Wednesday, it’s not actually real.)
The Maroon 5 frontman debuted the ink — a black rose that extends along the left side of his face from his temple down to his cheekbone — on his wife Behati Prinsloo’s Instagram Stories. In the snap, the singer side-eyes the camera from the passenger seat of a car while holding a bottle of Calirosa tequila in his expertly manicured hand. You can also see a close-up of the ink in action on Calirosa’s Instagram Stories.
Back in October, the former The Voice coach unveiled another tattoo in his impressive collection: a butterfly trapped in cobwebs stamped firmly on his throat. The rocker’s overall look has also undergone numerous transformations this year, as he’s changed his hair from a Lord of the Rings-inspired “Gandalf white-ish silver” to blue to green and back to the current state of his natural brunette.
Levine and his Maroon 5 bandmates just finished an eight-week tour across North America (which was postponed from its original 2020 dates due to the coronavirus pandemic) in support of their latest album Jordi. Next, they’ll cap that trek with two back-to-back nights playing The Chelsea at The Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas to ring in the new year on Dec. 30 and 31.
