We all know by now, Justin Bieber does as Justin Bieber pleases. From joy-riding, to egging a neighbour’s house, to getting engaged out-of-the-blue, he’s inclined to pull some pretty out-there stunts. But this time he’s really outdone himself, because he’s gone and gotten tattooed…on his face. And that’s not all – apparently new wife (we think) Hailey Baldwin has a matching one, too (though it’s not clear where hers might be).
Tattoo artist Bang Bang (real name, Keith McCurdy) shared news of the ink with Page Six, though we’ve yet to get more info, like what it actually says, from the Bieb himself. McCurdy confirmed his work on the pair, stating their couple’s tattoo was not “traditional” and that Justin’s is “really thin and delicate.” He went on to say he didn’t want to give it away “until press gets a hold of it” (uhh, great job on that, McCurdy) but that it contained “little words” and sat above Justin’s right eyebrow. Let the searching begin:
Unlike most of Bieber’s existing tattoos, this one’s on the surprisingly subtle side. In fact, it’s so small as to be almost imperceptible, and basically unreadable. But if you squint real hard, you’ll spot a tiny scribble above his right eyebrow. Heck, if you weren’t looking for the it, you might just assume you were looking at a few untamed brow hairs.
It’s not exactly in character for JB to go so delicate, but let’s be honest, there’s scarcely room anywhere else on his body for even the tiniest of tats. Just take a look at his torso as of April:
A canvas, indeed. Back in 2016, when he was about 70 per cent less tatted than he is today, Bieber broke down the meaning behind a few of his faves for GQ (included one of ex Selena Gomez – awkward). As for what this latest addition signifies, we can only guess. Another famed tattoo artist, JonBoy, who specializes in more delicate inscriptions, posted a photo of Bieber and Baldwin in July, captioning it, “Style&Grace”.

Perhaps it’s a clue to their coupled-up artwork? In the meantime, we hope they’re paying attention to a couple of folks by the names of Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson.
