Brett Young's tattoos are an important part of the handsome and talented country star. Many of his tattoos are related to his music career and hold a special meaning to him. Find out the story behind Brett Young's tattoos right here.

Brett Young's tattoos are hard to miss. Lining both arms, Brett is not afraid to show off his ink, and they each hold a special meaning behind them. On his right arm, Brett wears a tatt reading "if it feels like home follow the path," which references a quote by author R.M. Drake. 

As a child Brett grew up wanting to pursue a career as a baseball pitcher and even did until an injury sidelined him early in his college career. The singer then turned to music to counsel him and his tattoo references this idea of always following your dreams.
