Discover the special meaning behind Maluma's tattoos

The Colombian singer Maluma is one of the most famous and handsome Latinos in the music industry. Although we all know his music there are aspects of his personality yet to be discovered. Today we will tell you the meaning of the artist's tattoos told by himself. Scroll down to find out everything.  

  • Juan Luis Londoño Arias, also known as Maluma, was born 27 years ago in Medellín, Colombia.
  • The singer released a new audiovisual work on January 28th, 2021, called "7 Days In Jamaica", which has seven tracks and seven music videos with images taken during his trip to the island where he spent 7 days.
  •  Maluma has an estimated net worth of $12 million.

Maluma began his musical career at 16 but has been interested in art all his life.

In fact, in his high school years, Juan Luis was very popular for the beautiful poems he wrote to the girls in his class.

Every artistic expression caught the attention of the singer and as a teenager he felt the need to capture on his skin all those elements that seemed interesting and important to him in the world.

Currently, the artist has 24 tattoos on his toned body. Thanks to several interviews with the singer of "Hawai" we have been able to discover the meanings of them, and we'll tell you below.

Important people

Maluma's tattoos in honor to his cousins.

Maluma has several inks on his body dedicated to the most important people in his life.

Without going any further, the first tattoo he got was on his left leg, and it is precisely his artistic name.

Maluma is the conjunction of the first two letters of the three most important people in the singer's life.

Marilli, his mother, Luis his father and Manuela his sister.
He also dedicated inks to other members of his family such as his cousin Apollo, for whom he tattooed the date of his birth on his clavicle and another on his back for his other cousin Romeo.

Both are like brothers to the artist.

Maluma also made room, and a lot, in his skin for animals.

The singer chose those who are attributed qualities that he wants for his life.

For example, the singer wears a large lion on his chest, which according to GQ magazine, he did it at a hard time in his life when he needed strength the most and that is why he chose this animal that also represents leadership.

One of the first tattoos that Juan Luis got was an owl on his arm.

This animal represents wisdom, and it is something that he wants never to be lacking in his life.

Maluma also carries swallows, which are very special birds because, although migratory, they always return to the nest.

Just like him, although he travels a lot, he always finds his way back home.

A herd of elephants adorns the artist's right arm, representing his family as a whole. Maluma's first horse, Hercules, accompanies the herd.

Don't worry, fans also have a very important place in the life of the 27-year-old artist.

The crown he had inked behind his ear, reminds him that if he is successful it is thanks to the people because there is no king without a crown.

Buddha has been very important in the life of the singer of "Felices Los 4" because he respects his philosophy of life a lot and also added a temple in his body to remember that he always has a home to return to.

Women are amazing creatures to Maluma, and he believes that there is no successful man without a woman to support him and that is why he decided to tattoo a winged male figure that is embraced by a female one.

Maluma declared that this woman could be a girlfriend, his mother or his sister.

The large compass that adorns the inside of his arm reminds the Colombian singer that he must not lose his north despite fame and keeps him grounded.

I don't know about you, but I feel like Maluma is almost family now! Lol.
