Justin Bieber is a Canadian singer and songwriter. He was discovered over YouTube and so far he has sold an estimated 140 million records, which makes him one of the best selling artists in the world. He also became the second person ever to reach 100 million followers on Twitter (the first was Katy Perry.)
He has numerous awards under his belt including a Grammy Award for Best Dance Recording and he has surpassed 10 billion total views on Vevo. But it is the Biebs’ endeavors outside of music nowadays that has fans head over heels.
Justin Bieber is covered in tattoos, there’s one of Jesus and even one of his ex-girlfriend, Selena Gomez, which was later covered up. However, in an interview, Justin describes the first tattoo he ever got. It was of a seagull in remembrance of a book his family read ‘about a seagull who wants to be more than just a seagull.’
But it was his most recent tattoo that got Instagram and all his fans buzzing. Justin got a giant tattoo across his torso that took more than 20 hours to complete. It was on his Instagram where he showed off his tattoo artist’s work, @BangBangNYC’s, to his millions of followers.
In the video, Bieber showed off an entire stomach’s worth of new ink with the background overlaying a giant swimming pool. It seems like the popular singer got a giant portrait of a combination of gothic architecture, dark and light angels, and also a sun emitting God’s light through clouds on his torso.
But for those keeping track of the Biebs’ new tatts, it seems more like a scene in an epic than a random conjunction of scary art. So far the Canadian artist has a bear, a lion, a crucifix, an eagle, a skeleton, gothic arches, angels, and swirls tattooed all over his body.
There are also words of ‘Purpose’ and ‘Son of God’ tattooed on his body somewhere. According to the caption, the work took more than 26 hours over the span of three consecutive days.
