Florida Georgia Line's Tyler Hubbard is the latest country star to get new ink from the famed tattoo artist, Bubba Irwin. On Monday (September 28), Irwin gave the country star a large, detailed lion tattoo on his arm.
For the Ink Master Champion tattoo artist, this tattoo brought his career full circle. When he first met his client, Kane Brown on Florida Georgia Line's "Dig Your Roots Tour," he immediately knew he had to tattoo the duo one day. Irwin turned to Instagram to share more detail about the significance of the tattoo to him alongside a video showing off Hubbard's new ink.
"When your career comes around full circle!!!!!! Today completed a chapter in my life that means more to me than most people will ever know, and it started when I met @kanebrown_music, @katelynbrown and @nikkiboon on their dig your roots tour with Florida Georgia Line. I was so pumped to meet Kane and the gang, and the show was amazing as you can imagine. As I was watching the headliner’s FGL, I told my buddy @cartermitchell_az I have to tattoo those dudes some day, they’re so rad…" Irwin wrote in the caption. "Well, it finally happened and @tylerhubbard is so dope. I cant say enough how lucky I feel with this life and the people in it, everyone I’m meeting along the way just keeps humbling me in every sense of the word. So i just thought I’d share with you all how important and fun manifesting can be… hope you all keep at it!!!!!"
Hubbard's new tattoo comes days after he and his wife, Hayley, welcomes their third baby, Atlas Roy Hubbard. Their baby boy was born on Thursday, September 24 in Nashville, Tennessee.
Atlas Roy joins his 1-year-old brother, Luca Reed and 2-year-old sister Olivia Rose, giving the couple three children under the age of three.
"We are so excited to have Atlas here! It's been an amazing journey and we are feeling so thankful," the couple told People. "Having three under 3 was not our plan but clearly it was God's plan, and now we can't imagine it any other way. Liv is so excited and ready to meet her baby brother."
