The "Voice" coach took to Instagram late on Monday night to reveal a massive new back tattoo that allegedly took six months to finish.

The ink, which features a giant gothic mermaid holding a skull and surrounded by a mythical crest of ocean and birds, is clearly still fresh as the Maroon 5 frontman's skin is still red from the application.

Nothing gets a rockstar as jazzed as getting a new tattoo, right?!
