Justin Bieber shows off his happy trail…er…new tattoos

Ink: it’s not just something for squids to squirt when they’re startled.

Ink is everywhere these days, from Wallgreens receipts to Motel 6 bibles to your fingers after you read the Sunday Times. But nowhere is the substance more prevalent than the torso of Justin Bieber.

The 24-year-old performer has been slowly covering all his prime real estate with tattoos for years, and nobody is happier with the progress than he is.

In an Instagram post showing off all his hard work, he wrote this bit of poetry:

If tattooed [sic] didn’t hurt everyone would have them. Well maybe not very one [sic]!!Over a hundred hours of hart [sic] work on my body and I wouldn’t take back a single one.. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE ART AND IVE MAde my body a canvas and it’s SO MUCH FUN

Deep stuff.

What will art historians say about this in 50 years?
