Justin Bieber Gets Tattoo of His ‘Moms’ Eye
Justin Bieber will always be mama’s boy.
The pop phenom is paying a special tribute to his mother, Pattie Mallette, with a new tattoo: a close-up of her eye on his inner left elbow. Bieber debuted his latest body art addition — the work of legendary tattoo artist Bang Bang, the man behind much of Bieber’s ink — on Instagram Wednesday.
“@bangbangnyc did this art,” he wrote, along with a snap of his heavily-tattooed arm, where the new tattoo sits under his “Believe” and above his armored knight. “Moms always watching ;)”
Bieber has been raking up body art recently. In 2013 alone, Bieber has been under the needle at least five times. Aside from his latest tattoo, the singer has had an armored knight, a dark-haired angel (which strangely resembles his ex, Selena Gomez), a koi, a large “X” and the logo for his hometown hockey team, the Stratford Cullitons, inked on his body.
The new addition marks Bieber’s sixteenth tattoo, a collection that also includes three Christ-inspired designs, his mother’s birthday in Roman numerals, a crown, and an owl.
Before we know it, Bieber may be looking like this. Let’s hope not.
