Justin Bieber

Tatted Up

at 40,000 Feet

3/23/2014 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0321_justin_bieber_tattoo_launch_v2Justin Bieber has joined a very exclusive mile-high club that does not involving banging ... but it does involve body parts and a little prick.

It's true ... TMZ has learned Bieber got fresh ink on a flight to Canada just five days after his infamous Miami Beach arrest. The new tat was done by New York City tattoo artist Bang Bang, who has tatted up the likes of Rihanna, Selena Gomez, Katy Perry and many other big celebs.

Bang Bang tells TMZ the work was done at 40,000 feet (which he thinks might be a record for highest altitude tattoo) and during terrible turbulence. He called it "the most difficult tattoo I’ve ever done for sure."

In case you're wondering ... a rep for the FAA tells TMZ there is nothing illegal about getting a tattoo aboard a plane, as long as it doesn't interfere with the safety of passengers and crew.

As for the significance of the tattoos ... Bang Bang says Bieber sent him a text afterward, explaining, "Forgiveness is powerful, forgive as Jesus died on the cross to forgive our sins."

Or strike a plea bargain. Whichever works best.

So now Bieber is evangelizing and showing the world his underwear at the same time. To which Jesus says, "Please don't help."

Man, that's a pretty bad @ss body of god, no homo. Before spittin' out hate, take a look at your own body. Justin worked for a body like this. You can say this and that about him, but he earned his body through self-control and dedication. Props to him.

A few thoughts: Why is Bang Bang letting people know he is responsible for that mess? Did TMZ actually pay for that video? What the hell is wrong with this kid tatting up his body to look like a men's room wall in the basement of a church? I used to be neutral on a Bieber, but he is just a big hot mess and getting worse. I sure hope his millions are safely invested. I also hope he has a will.
