In early November, news broke that Justin Bieber is sporting some new face ink—but it’s so subtle, it took fans a while to notice it.
In an interview with Page Six, Bieber’s go-to tattoo artist, Bang Bang, (real name Keith McCurdy) confirmed that the new face tat is real and that Justin got it as part of a couple’s tattoo with Hailey Baldwin. He wouldn’t say much about the ink, but said it was “little words” next to Justin’s eyebrow. Squint and you can see there’s something there in this picture from July—but if you can make out what it says, you should register with the government as a superhero because your vision is inhuman.
“They each got a tattoo,” McCurdy said of the ink. “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…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.”
