Over the years, the 18-year-old has racked up over 10 pieces of permanent body art — and continues to expand his ever-growing collection.
On Monday, the “Baby” singer was snapped getting his 11th tattoo, a set of Roman numerals tatted on his right collarbone. Sporting only sunglasses and jeans, the Biebs was seen lying down as the number “1975″ was inked on his chest.
What does the new tat mean?
Many Beliebers deduced that the number may be a tribute to Bieber’s mother, Patricia Mallette, as she was born in 1975.
However, the Canadian crooner’s latest ink is only one of the many designs he has dedicated to family members.
In early January, Bieber got a black-and-gray version of the logo for the Stratford Cullitons — a junior ice hockey team based in Ontario, Canada — tattooed on his left shoulder blade.
“My grandfather always took me to the stratford culliton every friday night,” he wrote along with the snap of the body art, the work of Chente Rios, an L.A.-based tattoo artist who runs Under The Gun Tattoo Company. “This is for you Grampa (sic).”
