With all this time off from his now canceled Purpose tour, Justin Bieber decided to get some serious ink on his torso — and the Beliebers just can't believe it.
The now 23-year-old hit-maker blew his fans away on Oct. 21 when he revealed his new massive tattoo in an Instagram selfie and video.
The pop star obviously has no fear of going under the needle — no less than 60 tats cover his body. He's now added a stomach-spanning gothic artistic rendition of skeletons, archways and gargoyles to his torso — overshadowing that toned stomach of his that he's dedicated himself to working out and presenting regularly.
According to People, the new ink appears to be an addition and partial cover-up, connecting the tattoo of a bald eagle on his chest and veiling the "Son of God" body art that he had inked across his six-pack in November.
Justin also has tattoos of the head of a grizzly bear, a lion and cross on his chest, as well as the homage to his mom and her birthdate, which is written in roman numerals right below his left collarbone. Basically, his front side is quite busy.
As soon he revealed his new body art, fans took to Instagram to share negative, as well as positive and, err, mixed reviews.
One fan tweeted: "Justin Bieber's new tattoos — oh my god, I don't know what they mean to him but it looks AWFUL."
While another came to the singer's defense, tweeting, "You don't have to say sorry to your beliebers for getting new tattoos. It's your decision. Not anyone else's. No matter how talented you are, not everybody is going to like you. But, that's life. Just stay strong."
While another joked: "you ever heard the phrase everything in moderation."
And finally, a fan came to his aid with this aggressive Twitter response to all those haters: "I don't even know why everyone is so overreacting? I mean, yes, Justin got his whole torso covered with tattoos but he likes it so shut the [expletive] up." Added the fan, "I don't like it either but it's his body and we should respect his decision."
More shocking than the singer's new body art, though, is the revelation that he, really, REALLY needs to clean up his bathroom sink!
