Shawn Mendes is all about remembering where he came from.
Just a few years ago, the Stitches performer was posting clips of himself on Vine singing with his guitar — now, he's selling out Madison Square Garden!
And with such quick success, it's no surprise the 18-year-old likes to look back to keep things in perspective!
Stopping by Tuesday's Ellen, Mendes said that it's nice to look back on his old videos to remind himself where he came from — which was also the theme of his new Toronto-inspired tattoo!
The singer showed off his recently inked forearm, which was the Toronto skyline made to look like a shadowed guitar. The pop star explained that the middle part of the tattoo is connected by a sound wave of his family saying "I love you."
So sweet! Ch-ch-check out the clip (below) to hear Shawn talk about tats, touring, and memories!
