Tat’s Some Good Design Work, Biebs

Is Justin Bieber trading in his microphone for another art form?

Don’t worry, Beliebers, he’s not quitting his day job, but by the looks of these photos he may have a career to fall back on… in tattooing (although we somehow think that won’t be happening anytime soon.)

We all know Biebs knows a thing or two about permanent ink (he’s got 11 tats), but celebrity tattoo artist Bang Bang turned the tables on the superstar asking the 19-year-old to show off his design work… on him!

“I’m like a needy fan, I want a 30-minute autograph,” Bang Bang told Celebuzz.

During the 15-minute sit-down, the Canadian crooner showed his sketching skills by inking a muscled mouse — Bieber’s cartoon alter ego — along with JB’s own coolness stamp of approval — the word “swaggy.”

“That was his design. It was anything he wanted. It’s his cartoon character. It might be the only thing he knows how to draw,” Bang Bang said with a laugh.

“It’s kinda my thing, I’m always asking celebrities to tattoo me,” added Bang Bang, who gave Bieber his ‘Believe’ body art on his arm.

“They always say yes to me.”

That they do. Bieber joins a long list of ink masters in the making like Rihanna, Chris Brown and Katy Perry.

And for any naysayers out there, the pop star-turned-amateur tattoo artist was in very capable hands… and was a natural.

“There are people in New York with a tattoo license that don’t know their a** from their elbow,” Bang Bang said in response to reports Biebs did it illegally. “He did the tattoo under the supervision of a very capable teacher… me.”

So who’s his next famous victim? That’s top secret… for now.

Take a look at the gallery above to see Bieber’s budding tattoo technique at work.
