Adam Levine was photographed sporting a major hair change this week.

In photos obtained by People, the Maroon 5 frontman rocked bright blue hair as he took a stroll in California Monday wearing just white shorts and running shoes the same color as his locks.

Aside from his new hair color, Levine also recently added a new tattoo to his collection.

The singer took to Instagram Monday to share a photo of his new ink, which featured a butterfly landing on a spiderweb. The design was inked on the center of his neck, right above his "Family" tattoo.

"Had to," Levine wrote in his Instagram Story, alongside images of the new tattoo.

On his main page, he captioned a photo of the ink, "Wise man once said… 'when Instagram goes down…tattoo your throat…' his name was @nathan_kostechko."

Vanessa Bryant commented on his post with, "Love," along with a butterfly emoji. Her late husband Kobe Bryant had a butterfly crown tattoo on his arm that sat above her name.

"I'm so mad you didn't text me first, but I f---in' love it!!" wrote singer blackbear.

"Only the best!!" AJ Rompza commented. "Super cool!" wrote tattoo artist Sasha Masiuk.

Tattoo artist Nathan Kostechko, who is also responsible for Levine's Immaculate Heart tattoo on the side of his neck, posted the photo of Levine on his own Instagram account. The photo showed off the new ink as well as the singer's blue hairstyle.

"@adamlevine really went for it on this one," Kostechko wrote in the caption.

The artist received praise for his latest work, with one fan writing, "Super cool one Nathan."

"I almost hate that somebody so famous has such good tattoos," another joked.

Levine has a passion for tattoos. He has over two full sleeves on his arms and more than a dozen other designs inked across his body, including tattoos of an eagle, a flower and necklace, tiger, shark and dove.

The singer also had an intricate Japanese-inspired design inked on his right leg by tattoo artist Bill Canales in August. Levine shared a time-lapse video of the entire 13-hour process on Instagram.

Levine opened up about his tattoos when he graced the cover of People as the magazine's "Sexiest Man Alive" for 2013. He shared that he got his first ink, a dove, when he was 21, just days after 9/11. According to him, he felt the need to "say something with this peaceful thing on my body."

"Tattoos wind up being this strange road map or narrative over the years. They always remind me of this long, weird, awesome journey life has been," he explained.
