Justin Bieber and his new knight tattoo.

It’s getting to the point where it feels like Justin Bieber is getting a new tattoo every other week. That’s not true, of course; it’s more like every other month, but STILL, being major commitment-phobes, we’re surprised and excited every time Biebs turns up with yet another new piece of permanent ink. Looks like Justin’s continuing to fill up that left forearm (presumably working toward a full-blown sleeve) with his newest addition: a nearly full-body portrait of some sort of medieval knight character.
A change of pace from his other, more cartoonish ink jobs, this tattoo feels markedly more serious, from all that evident effort gone into illustrating and shading to the piece’s potential symbolism. Clad in head-to-toe armor, it kiiiinda sorta looks like the knight is holding on to a sword that’s only partially visible (else, that’s a really weirdly fat dagger and forget everything we said about serious illustrating). In all likelihood, the sword is stuck in a stone meaning this just might be a tattoo of King Arthur. What could it mean? We don’t know for sure, but it probably goes a little something like, “Boy wonder, boy king, something something destiny.”
What do you think of Justin Bieber’s new ink?
