Talking about the picture, Adam Levine gave the backstory of his captured moment.
Me in highschool standing in front of Josh Uller's Volvo. We had most likely been blasting NOFX or Weezer and were clearly stopping somewhere to do something shady.

In a 2013 interview with media outlet PEOPLE, where he was named the Sexiest Man Alive, the 42-year-old singer talked about his tattoos.

In August 2021, the star spent 13 hours with tattoo artist Bill Canales getting a Japanese-inspired design on his right leg. He documented the whole process via a time lapse video for his fans and admirers.
His latest body art was unveiled on December 1, 2021. Levine made a red carpet appearance with his wife, model Behati Prinsloo.
