Moby has taken to social media to unveil his completed "animal rights" arm tattoos.

On Monday, the musician uploaded an image of the fresh body art to his Instagram page, with the snap showing how he has had the block letters on the top of each of his arms filled in.

"I thought it was time to fill in my arm tattoos," he penned, alongside the hashtags, "#animalrights #veganforlife."

Last month, Moby shared that he had visited tattoo artist Kat Von D, who is also vegan, to get the initial inkings, as he wanted to celebrate abiding by a vegan lifestyle for more than three decades.

"As November is my 32-year vegan anniversary I thought I'd get a tattoo (well, technically 12 tattoos) to celebrate," the 54-year-old captioned the image on Instagram. "I'm a vegan animal rights activist for many reasons, but ultimately because I believe at the core of my being that every animal has the right to live their own life, according to their own will."

But this isn't the first time Moby has celebrated veganism with a tattoo. Back in September, the Porcelain hitmaker posted an image of a cross tattoo on the back of his neck which had been updated with the words, "Thou shalt not kill", across the top.

"I got my first tattoo, a cross on my neck, in 1995 when I was on lollapalooza with sonic youth, beck, pavement, etc (sic). After 24 years I thought it was time to ask @thekatvond to give it an update. Wouldn't it be remarkable if the world's religions agreed on this one simple edict; thou shalt not kill? Thou shalt not kill humans. Thou shalt not kill animals. Thou simply shalt not kill," he explained.

Moby also has the words "Vegan for Life" inked on his neck.
