Nick Jonas May Have a Tiny Tattoo Collection, but Each One Sends a Powerful Message

Joe Jonas has an impressive collection of tattoos — even his latest piece is getting a lot of attention because it very closely resembles his wife, Sophie Turner — but he isn't the only Jonas Brother who's been inked in the past. His younger brother Nick Jonas, for example, has his fair share of tattoos as well, although not quite as many.

In fact, the singer appears to be pretty selective with what he gets permanently drawn on his body, and all of his tattoos seem to have deeper meanings that are all tied to his personal life and journey — Nick even got a matching one with Joe a few years ago.

Read ahead to get a closer look at Nick's tattoos and to find out what each one means.

Nick Jonas's "Mercy" Tattoo

In 2012, the singer got a tattoo of the word "mercy" merged with an infinity symbol on his right forearm. Jonas has religious roots, so fans have speculated that the tattoo is a callout to the Psalm 136 Bible verse that reads, "Give thanks unto the Lord; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever."

Nick Jonas's Symbol Tattoo

Shortly after getting the "mercy" tattoo, Jonas got a series of symbols — four arrows pointing in each direction and a geometric-shaped "G" — inked onto the inside of his left arm. The tattoo can be translated to "God is greater than the highs and lows."

Nick Jonas's Arrow Tattoo

In 2016, the singer got matching tattoos with his brother and bandmate Joe Jonas. They both got tattoos of arrows that pointed to each other on opposite arms. The brothers shared images of their tattoos on Snapchat shortly after they were finished but didn't mention the exact meaning behind it.

According to, arrow tattoos can have multiple meanings, depending on how they're designed. Some people get them to symbolize taking their lives in a different direction, while others may get them as a way to protect themselves from harm.
