Sam Smith has made their mark in 2023. Their sultry pop anthem, "Unholy" featuring Kim Petras, was certified a chart-topping single, earning both artists their first Billboard Hot 100 number one and a Grammy nod. The singer-songwriter has also released their fourth studio album, "Gloria", and even released a track, named "Vulgar" with Madonna.

Despite Smith's busy schedule over the years – which included the comfiest look on the red carpet at the "Barbie" premiere, as well as honouring the late Brianna Ghey on their "Gloria The Tour" – the artist has managed to accumulate an enviable collection of tattoos that are just as remarkable as their music and serve as an extension of their vibrant personality.

Smith has shared the inspiration fuelling their ever-growing love for body art while recently speaking with SiriusXM. "I think I have over, like, 35 now. It's weird because I never, like, aimed to be a tattooed person, but they're like little stamps wherever I go places. They've started to get more and more and more, and I'm gonna be filled," they said.

Though they have a whopping 35+ tattoos to their name already, they certainly don't plan on stopping anytime soon. "When I'm 70, I think I'll get one on my face. Through my life, I'm just gonna fill up, and when I hit my 70th birthday, I'll get something here, probably something small," they said while sweeping their cheek. "And then 80th will be like, 'Whoa!'"

Take a closer look at their extensive tattoo collection ahead, as well as what each one means.
