Sam Smith is no newbie to getting inked.
The soulful singer showed off four new tattoos on Monday, but wanted to let his 6 million Instagram followers know that they're actually super significant!
The 23-year-old took to the photo-sharing site to post close-up pics of each new design, and explained their meanings in the captions!

The first image the English crooner shared shows two red lines on his left ring finger, which represents his passion for love and marriage equality, writing:
"First one - the equality sign on my wedding finger. This ones pretty self explanatory. It shows my views on gay marriage and equality for all x"
Ch-ch-check it out (below)!
The second pic shows a similar design, except the red lines are horizontal and on his right ring finger. The artist explains this one has more of a historical significance, saying:
"Second - this tattoo is inspired by one of the oldest tattoos ever found on a mummified body that was found buried alone in the ice."
Take a look (below)!
The next photo shows some new ink on his bicep, just of the cursive word "honesty." The musician confesses that this one actually ties into his work, explaining:
"Third - This is what I promise to be in my music. It's what I live by. In the words of @mariamena_official 'Honesty is my God'"
See for yourself (below)!
And the last one — the cursive word "alone" on his opposite bicep — may seem kind of sad, but is actually pretty positive! He wrote:
"And lastly - this is just me being a melancholy twat haha. I do see it as a small positive thou… No longer lonely… Just alone… Which is ok x thought I'd share these with you because I love them"
Check it out (below)!
We love ALL of these! They're all so simple but mean so much! Thanks for sharing, Sam!
