What makes Justin Bieber just like the rest of us? He may be the world's biggest pop star, but that doesn't stop him from exercising his right as an 18-year-old to get a regrettable tattoo. The "Boyfriend" singer just posted a shirtless pic to Twitter that showed off his new ink. Right between his smooth, slender arms on his smooth, slender chest, the Bieber got a crown tattoo near his right collarbone that looks to be a little bigger than a quarter. A source told Us Weekly that the crown is in tribute to the King of Pop, Michael Jackson, and that he got the permanent body art back in late July.
For those of you counting at home, this new tattoo makes seven for Bieber. He's gaining on Miley Cyrus. She's got upwards of 15 tats, and Glee star Lea Michele has 14 hidden tattoos. Someone fire up the electric ink body stylus because Bieber's just a few wine coolers and one sugar-free Red Bull away from catching up to these female performers.
I happen to think any ink is a bad idea when you're a teenager. I've seen many 28-year-olds go through laser removal to get the stars taken off their wrists, the infinity signs removed from their ankles, or the high school boyfriend's name turned into some sort of black box with vines coming out of it to know that what sounds like a good idea when you're granted governmental access to adulthood isn't always a good idea for life. I mean, I wore glitter on my cheeks and three-quarter-length sleeve jersey tops that were 98 percent spandex when I was a senior in high school. If I had to wear that now, I'd hide in bed under the covers and become some sort of blogger on the Internet. Hey. Wait.
Whatever, I hope the Prince of Pop is happy with his new crown and if so, I'm happy for him. After all, when he smiles, I smile. Just, when he gets it removed, I'll be there with my glittery cheeks to say I told you so.
What do you think of Justin's new tattoo?
