Justin Bieber is wise as an owl — or so implies his latest tattoo.

The pop phenom debuted his new ink on Instagram Sunday — a black-and-grey owl sitting on his left forearm. “Befo the paps get me,” he wrote along with the photo.

The nocturnal bird — which often signifies wisdom, intelligence or insightfulness — sits beside Bieber’s “Believe” tattoo, which he got in June in honor of his latest LP title.

The animal body art marks Bieber’s eighth tattoo. Just last month, the “Boyfriend” singer, 18, added to his collection with a crown on the right side of his chest, showing off the ink in a shirtless snap on Twitter. “New tattoo. It’s a crown if you couldn’t tell,” he wrote.

The heavily inked pop star — currently on his Believe world tour — has raked up tattoos in recent months. His collection includes the Japanese Kanji symbol for music on his right arm; a small bird on his left hip; praying hands on his left calf; and the Hebrew word for Jesus on his ribcage.
