'Honesty' and 'Alone' are just some of the words seen etched onto Sam Smith's fingers after revealing he had met an "incredible" tattoo artist.

The Grammy Award-winning hitmaker took to Instagram to share pictures of his latest inkings, and made sure to explain his reasonings for the unusual designs.

“So honoured and overwhelmed to not only have met this incredible artist, but to have her tattoo four bits of work on my body today. I adore you - such an inspiring human," he shared.

1. Equality 

Sharing a snap of an equality symbol on his ring finger, the star explained: "This one is pretty self explanatory. It shows my views on gay marriage and equality for all.”

He then shared a picture of his second inking which he claimed was "inspired by one of the oldest tattoos ever found on a mummified body that was found buried alone in the ice.”

2. Ancient History

The third tattoo, written on his upper arm, read "honesty" something which Sam believes is the main factor in his songwriting. 

"This is what I promise to be in my music. It’s what I live by. In the words of @mariamena_official ‘Honesty is my God,’” he shared.
