Jeff Mazzeo

Justin Bieber is not an animal, but he has a lot of them tattooed on his body. His latest addition comes in the form of a giant bird tattooed on the left side of his neck.

The Biebs shared a photo to his Instagram on Thursday that showed off his new ink. The tat featured a bird that looks similar to a swallow and the word, "Forever" underneath it. The "Never Say Never" star made sure to wear a pink button-up shirt and a matching hat to model Drew House, the clothing line that he owns.

The 25-year-old is no stranger to ink but even heavily tattooed people know that getting work done on one's head, neck or face is a big deal. Justin acknowledged the commitment he made in the caption of his post.

"Forever thanks @dr_woo," Bieber wrote to show appreciation for the tattoo artist.

Bieber did not face neck the pain alone, he had the support of his beautiful wife, Hailey Rhode Bieber. She sat by his side when he got the art put on his sensitive skin. She shared a short video to her Instagram story that revealed that the whole ordeal was being filmed and showed Justin gritting his teeth from the pain.

Justin's Neck Tat + Hailey's Neck Tat = 'Lover Forever'

Justin trusted celebrity tattoo artist Dr. Woo with the difficult ink job. Woo has placed his work on several celebrities like Miley Cyrus but most importantly, he tattooed the word, "lover" on Hailey's neck. Some keen-eyed fans made the connection and one said, "I loved it, and its tattoo along with Hailey's neck tattoo also forms the phrase "lover forever", so cute!"

Many fans agreed that the new art looked cool and sounded off in the comments.

"It’s a beautiful tattoo 😍❤️♾," an impressed follower commented while another wrote, "Love the ink 👌🏻👌🏻👌🏻👌🏻."

His millions of followers were split on whether it was a good decision and they did not keep their opinions to themselves.

"you ruined your beautiful neck," an angry fan said while others commented, "Idk y this just ain’t it 😂" and "U are a clown."

As always, fans on Instagram are always looking for the deeper meaning and asked,"whats the meaning of ur new tattoo Justin?"

No word yet about what it means or why he got it but, if it is a swallow, the tattoo has special meaning. It symbolizes the completion of a long journey and sailors often got the ink to show that they are experienced and have been through a lot. Bieber might not be a sailor but he has definitely been through a lot while growing up in the public eye.

Bieber Apologizes For His Past

Justin recently took a public stand and admitted to making mistakes in the past when it came to his language.

He shared an image of the words, "STAND AGAINST RACISM," and poured his heart out in the caption.

"When I was young I was uneducated and found myself saying really hurtful things not knowing the power of my words. Racism Is still very prevalent and I want to use my voice to remind we are all human being and all of EQUAL VALUE BEFORE GOD!"

Perhaps after he made amends for his past, he was able to get the tattoo to symbolized that he has changed and learned.
