After two years of “putting it off,” multi-media personality Bobby Bones finally got a new tattoo to commemorate his induction to the National Radio Hall of Fame.

The Bobby Bones Show host and American Idol mentor showed off his new microphone tattoo on Instagram with a series of photos documenting his new ink.

“I finally got my microphone tattoo that I committed to if it got into the National Radio Hall of Fame,” Bones wrote. “Better late than never!”

He also gave his Nashville-based tattoo artist, Adam “TheKid” Wakitsch, a shoutout writing, “If you are in Nashville for life or vacation, hit up my guy. Tell him Bobby sent you. It won’t get you a deal, but it’ll be funny to me. ???. I’m basically a biker without a bike now.”

Bones was inducted into the National Radio Hall of Fame in late 2017. He was the youngest ever inductee and joined the ranks of radio legends such as Dick Clark, Paul Harvey, Larry King and Bob Kingsley.

Bones recently returned from a whirlwind trip to Hawaii where he and his American Idol cohorts, Luke Bryan, Katy Perry, Lionel Richie and Ryan Seacrest, filmed a portion of the upcoming season of the hit show.

The much-anticipated new season of American Idol premieres Sunday, February 16 on ABC.
