Justin Bieber

Tatted Up

at 40,000 Feet

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.

It's funny to see how life works...

First, everyone is suckered in to Bieber's nice kid from down the block attitude and millions flock to buy his album making him a millionaire. Then, as history repeats time and again, the proverbial nice kid then sticks his middle finger up to the people who made him rich in the first place and now everyone is bitching about it. How many times does this scenario have to play out before people get it???

..And people wonder why the gap between the richest 1% like Bieber and the poor 99% like us is widening....

Has anyone heard of Bittorrent???

I have seen more of Justin Bieber's underwear in the few short years he's been in the press than I ever did when I had two sons living at home. (Notice I did not say since Bieber's been singing.) And frankly I'm sick and tired of it.
Electronically enhanced recordings are just that. Nothing to do with a great voice.
