Tell us about your tat, JB!

  • Justin Bieber has freaked out the internet after showing off his new full-torso tattoo. Justin Bieber has over 60 tattoos and his new ink is his biggest tattoo yet! The work was done by Keith “Bang Bang” McCurdy for 26 hours over 3 days. 

    Bang Bang has tattooed other famous folks like athletes Lebron James and Odell Beckham, Jr., and entertainers such as Demi Lovato and Rihanna.

    Bang Bang says Bieber wanted something to bring his tattoos together, but didn’t know what the final result would look like. “He said he wanted me to cover his front, so I sent him a bunch of options,” Bang Bang told E! News. “They were all religious in subject. I explained to him that the whole front should be one idea. I didn’t actually cover anything. There are no cover-ups.”

    So, what exactly are we looking at?

    Bang Bang explains, “We added two angels, one on each side. Below each one, they’re dominating the evil. Whenever I do an epic piece, there needs to be the positive and negative. … Below each of the angels, there is a demon that needs to be defeated. The skeleton on one side and the serpent on the other.”
