It's every fan's dream to get noticed by their idol, let alone getting a DM from them. Shawn Mendes did just that when he saw a picture on Twitter that caught his eye. He made a fan's world and supported a fellow Canadian all with one idea. Shawn Mendes got a new tattoo and proved that he is the ultimate Canadian celeb. 

It all started when Kayla (@nasaruins on Twitter) posted an edited photo of Mendes, showing him with a beautiful butterfly tattoo on his left inner arm. Kayla captioned the photos, "shawn mendes with a butterfly tattoo. i rest my case." 

Fans make these types of edits all the time but none of them ever expect to get a response from their idol. Mendes quoted Kayla's tweet and said, "Wait this is awesome, can u DM the drawing??

I don't know about Kayla but I would be SHOOK. Kayla was the real MVP and shared her DM messages with the rest of the Twitterverse.

There was no news for a couple of days until Toronto tattoo artist, Livia Tsang, posted a photo of Mendes on her Instagram with the Butterfly tattoo, in the exact spot as Kayla's edit. 

The original artist of the tattoo also got in on the fun and thanked everyone for supporting his art, especially Mendes. 

This whole situation just shows us that anything can truly happen!
