“Welcome to Justin Bieber’s body, Banksy balloon girl. Being a tattoo on Justin is a huge bummer, so just remember that if you need anything, whether it be counselling, emotional support, or just a shoulder to cry on, we’re all here for you.” – Embarrassed Jesus
Because Justin Bieber is dead set on turning his body in a Lisa Frank sticker book, he’s added yet another tattoo to his diverse collection. On Wednesday, Justin forged a note from his mom and chose his best fake I.D. (Rad Brandon from Manitoba) and got street artist Banksy’s Balloon Girl tattooed on his right forearm. Yes it looks like it was copied from a picture taken on a Motorola Razr. Yes it looks like it was done with Blo-Pens. Yes Justin’s joker tattoo just popped a bottle of Champale in celebration of no longer being the shittiest tattoo.
Shortly after Justin posted the picture of his tattoo to his Shots account, the “artist” responsible for this mess (if I could have thrown more quotes around the word artist, I would have) felt compelled to explain why Justin’s tattoo looks less like Balloon Girl and more like Ballewn Gurl, her Dollar Tree equivalent. Glen Hartless explained on his Instagram that the tattoo was “more subtle imagery” and that “we weren’t after a carbon copy rip off”. Uh huh. I’m sure that’s what the artist of this tattoo said too. “Of course it looks nothing like her, I was going for more subtle imagery!”
Now start placing your bets for what his next awful tattoo will be! A stick-poke of a yin-yang? A tribal tramp stamp? No Ragrets? The sky’s the limit!
