Back in September 2016, Shawn appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show to discuss his first tattoo – a guitar on his arm.

“It’s the woods here and a reflection on water, a sound wave connecting to the city, being Toronto,” he explained. “Actually, the sound wave is my parents and my sister saying ‘I love you,’ so it’s that connection between home, work, and family.”

We’ll have to wait and see what Shawn has to say about the meaning behind his new tattoo!

John Mayer on Influencing Ed Sheeran & Shawn Mendes: 'Those Guys Are Me'

John Mayer is opening up about the new wave of musicians who cite him as a big influence on their careers.

The 39-year-old “Slow Dancing in a Burning Room” singer was asked about Ed Sheeran and Shawn Mendes, in particular.

“I didn’t see it coming. We don’t realize that every five years a motherf-cker is born into the world of music,” John told Rolling Stone. “I don’t apply as much from the blues world to my music as I’d like to, but there’s a lot to be applied from the blues world spiritually on this: Those guys are me. I looked up to Eric Clapton and Stevie Ray Vaughan. All my heroes were awesome to me, so there’s a contract to make the new guys feel accepted.”

John and Ed are buddies and even got tattoos together!

Meanwhile, John recently invited Shawn on stage in Toronto to sing with him during his concert.
