Jacob Whitesides officially has a bold new tattoo, and it's literally out of this world! The 19-year-old singer got a black and white astronaut design complete with the planet Earth and some constellations inked on his left arm. See the joke we made there?
Jacob debuted his new ink in several social media posts – including an incredibly hot shirtless Instagram snap – and revealed the story behind why he chose this meaningful design.
"My entire childhood I wanted to be an astronaut, painted my entire room with stars and planets," Jacob explained about the inspiration behind his design. "That changed quickly when I was about 11 and watched one space movie, realizing I would have to leave my mom for too long... now I'm on tour all the freaking time realizing I could've done the whole space thing..... still love you and miss you mom & still really wanna go to space!!! Time to sleeve up 💉."

It looks like Jacob is interested in covering both of his arms with tattoos, and he's already well on his way with this big art piece.
Jacob's first tattoo was actually a much smaller design than his latest addition. He got a puzzle piece inked on his wrist back in 2015 to represent his EP title, A Piece of Me.
