Maksim Chmerkovskiy Explains Family Tattoo — See It Up Close and Personal! (PHOTO)

It's been a big week for Maksim Chmerkovskiy, with the start of his new Broadway show, Forever Tango, and it looks like he's really feeling the love.

The Dancing With the Stars pro took to Instagram yesterday (July 9), posting a photo of his tattoo that says "Family Over Everything." Along with the up-close pic of his body art, Maks wrote, "Special thanks to the people that always support me in my successes and failures! Unconditionally loving this hard-to-handle, stubborn man! My family! You know who you are...with or without blood ties! Love you all..." Can someone please pass the tissues?

Plus, Maks isn't the only Chmerkovskiy getting emotional about his new gig on Broadway. His brother Val tweeted, "watchin your brother star in #forevertango on Broadway is a dream come true. Congrats to @MaksimC and @Karina_Smirnoff on a breathtaking job." Seriously though, we need those tissues, ASAP!

What do you think of tough-skinned Maks and Val getting in touch with their softer sides? Weigh in below!
