Adam Levine, the talented Maroon 5 lead singer, has an interesting life that many people admire. It is really difficult to think of Adam Levine and not immediately have a picture of fascinating and breathtaking tattoos; he certainly has an insatiable appetite for them. Then there is his brother, who is certainly the solid rock on which Adam stands, and the depth of the bond that these two brothers have is a self-evident proof of what friendship can do in a family. And then, of course, there is his house, which has earned its place in the limelight because it is a house to be proud of and envied.
Adam Levine’s Tattoos
These elaborate tattoos on his body will attract everyone’s attention and fascinate many people because there is more to them than meets the eye. Adam has a great appetite for tattoos, and they take up a considerable amount of space on his upper body. Adam got his first tattoo when he was 21 years old. It is a dove on his left shoulder. He got it as a tribute to the heavy losses America suffered on September 11, 2001, due to terrorist attacks.
As he moves forward in his life, Adam finds it wise to imprint those moments in his life that have special meaning in the form of tattoos on his own body, although he occasionally gets tattooed for an apparently unstable reason. Here is an overview of where the tattoos are on his body and the reasons why he got tattooed.
One tattoo for which he gives no reason to get it, although its role in improving his appearance is no small feat, is a black pearl necklace around his neck. He got this in Japan. When asked why he got it, he jokingly said it was to make sure he never lacked a chain. Really Adam?
He also has a sunflower on his right nipple which he says resembles a delicious cabbage, but which also serves as a complement to his abs. On his left nipper is a Sanskrit word, “tapas”, which means warmth, fire, or passion. It tells the whole story of his love for yoga.
An eagle sits on his abs. He says he got it as a reminder of what an interesting journey life has been. Many people will find it hard to connect the two, and I honestly can’t blame them.
Then there is a gypsy hand of true love and the word California on his left abs, which is a tribute to his home state that everyone would be proud of. Then there is a mysterious, illegible cursive on his right biceps, and that remains a mystery.
Adam also has a tiger on his right elbow, which he says was inspired by his love for a Tibetan drawing book.
In an effort to gain his mother’s approval of his tattoos, he then has a mother’s heart on his right forearm. Adam also has a guitar on his left arm, out of love for this instrument, as he was the lead guitarist of Kara Flowers, the band from which Maroon 5 emerged. He has an X on his left bicep which is the Roman numeral for 10. He got it for the 10th anniversary of Maroon 5’s existence.
On his right shoulder, he engraved the name, Los Angeles, out of love for his hometown. He drew a cute shark on his right ribs, and he says this is because sharks are at the top of his list of fascinating creatures on earth.
He has the number 222 on his left forearm. The number is of sentimental value to him, as it was the door number of the first recording studio of Maroon 5. Adam says the feather tattoos on his arms keep him warm at night.
To crown it all, Adam has an elaborate tattoo that fills his entire back. In the center is a mermaid holding a skull, in an otherwise usual sea scenario with a ship, a ship’s wheel, flowers, billowing clouds, the sun, and many other things. The tattoo completely covered the earlier tattoos on his back, including the drawing of a model (which apparently symbolizes his love for the Victoria Secret models), a dog’s paw with the name of his dead golden retriever Frankie Girl. Adam gave fans a first look at the tattoo through a picture on his Instagram page, revealing that it took 6 months to complete. If this is not the ultimate definition of a tattoo lover, I don’t know what is.
Adam Levine’s Brother – Michael Levine
He’s Adam’s younger brother. The two brothers have a very close relationship, exploring both family and friendship. Michael is openly gay, and Adam stands behind him and gives him his full support. Their love for each other is also evident in the number of concerts Adam takes Michael too. All in all, these two are a model of the kind of friendship that siblings should have.
Adam Levine’s House
Celebrities love to turn their houses upside down, and Adam is no different. The Maroon 5 frontman once lived in a 1940s bachelor pad in Bronson Canyon, Los Angeles, whose interior was redesigned by Mark Haddaway, a top interior designer, and friend of Adam’s. Adam sold the house in 2013 for $3.5 million and made a profit of over 300,000 euros. The sale came after he, like Jagger, moved to a more expansive bachelor pad in a gated enclave in Beverly Hills known as Wallingford Estates, which he bought for around $5 million in 2012.

Prior to his marriage to Victoria’s Secret model Behati Prinsloo in 2014, Adam renovated the 6-bedroom Beverly Hills villa to include an additional bedroom, guest suite, and recording room. Apparently, he was preparing for the arrival of the woman.
After the two of them hitchhiked together, they bought their first property together, a spacious loft in the luxurious SoHo New York at 112 Greene Street for $4.55 million. The 2,700 square meter apartment is 13 feet tall and has hardwood floors. Since April 2016, the house has been listed with the Oxford Property Group at a sale price of $5.5 million, over a million more than they bought it in 2014.
In March 2016, Adam and the pregnant Behati were spotted looking for a house in Pacific Palisade, California. It appears that the couple will need a bigger house to raise their impending baby girl, Yes! It’s a girl, so the couple has revealed. When the couple-to-be finally buys a new mansion in LA, it will not be surprising that they are parting ways with their Beverly Hills estate, also known as Benedict House, as it is located on a 3.66-acre property in the Benedict Canyon area of Beverly Hills.
