In a world where it feels like there's a ton of celebrity tattoo news every day, we're more surprised that Shawn Mendes didn't already have ink than the fact that he decided to get his first tat this week.

The singer-songwriter headed to Chronic Ink in Toronto to get his first piece of permanent body art tattooed to his forearm and the design is truly stunning. Completed by tattoo artist Livia Tsang, there's so much more to the design than initially meets the eye.

Toronto's infamous CN Tower is depicted along the arm of the guitar.

Awesome, right?
