TOP celebrity tattoo artist Keith “Bang Bang” McCurdy has revealed that Justin Bieber has a new face tattoo — but the singer has not displayed it yet publicly.
According to Page Six, the facial ink was part of a couples tattoo McCurdy did for Bieber and his rumoured new wife, Hailey Baldwin.
“They each got a tattoo,” said McCurdy.
“Justin’s tattoo is on his face, and I haven’t seen any photos of it — so he’s doing a good job of laying low.”
The tattoo artist is staying tight-lipped on the tattoo’s significance but he did reveal that it is not traditional.
“It’s really thin and delicate. And [it’s] also not a traditional couples’ tattoo … I don’t want to give away what it is until press gets a hold of it,” he said.
He also revealed that Bieber’s tat was next to his eyebrow and includes “little words”.
But there have been some hints about the couple’s ink. After McCurdy’s interview, Page Six noticed Bieber was photographed in July with some possible facial art around his eyebrow that seemingly reads “Grace”.
Tattoo artist JonBoy — who was responsible for Bieber’s first face tattoo which is also nearly invisible — posted a photo of the couple and captioned it: “Style & Grace.”
McCurdy is the go-to artist for celebrities Selena Gomez, Demi Lovato, Adele and Rihanna.
“I’ve done some tattoos on celebrities in really painful spots. I’ve made Rihanna cry,” he told Page Six, “because it’s been so painful on certain body parts.”
He added of the tearful tattoo: “It was the tattoo on her ankle area, the Egyptian falcon. I think just being tattooed on your foot. She was not feeling it — but she thugged up.”
McCurdy started working with the “Umbrella” singer over a decade ago.
He told Page Six of couples getting tattooed together like Bieber and Baldwin: “I don’t know if more couples are doing it now, but I do think the media’s taking more notice. Now they’ll get these tattoos, and there’ll be 1000 articles about them … People are really curious about these tattoos and their meanings.”
