Yep: The dream boy of every tween has gone and gotten himself inked. According to reports, Bieber, 16, got the tattoo because of his love of Richard Bach's famous book, "Jonathan Livingston Seagull." This teen-idol tat is bad news for parents dealing with their kids' unabated Bieber-mania. The Bieb's latest move could start a new trend of underage tattooing ... or a rush on "Jonathan Livingston Seagull" books.
Even though he had his dad's consent, isn't baby Bieber a little young to get a real (not rub-on!) tat? What do you think? »
Earlier in the week, some news and images surfaced that told us that Justin Bieber had gotten a tattoo. As a part of his 16th birthday celebration at the beginning of March, Bieber went to Son of a Gun Tattoo and Barbershop in Toronto with his dad in tow to get an impression of Jonathan Livingston Seagull (a tattoo also possessed by Bieber's dad and his uncle) on his hip. On Tuesday (May 18), MTV News caught up with Son of a Gun co-owner Brian Byrne, who laid out the narrative of the event. It's a great story that inspired us to graft other celebrity tattoos on him.

Recent photos surfaced on the internet of Bieber receiving a tattoo according to MTV news – and it’s on his hip (of all the crazy sensitive places to get one. Oi vey)
All of this makes Hollywood News wonder whether Bieber flexes his tattoo as part of his mating call to the ladies, i.e. Kendall Kardashian.
MTV got down and dirty and literally got Brian Byrne, co-owner of Son of a Gun Tattoo and Barbershop in Toronto where Bieber was bronzed, on »
Following a newly-leaked photo showing Justin Bieber got his hip inked with a small bird, Brian Byrne, co-owner of Son of a Gun Tattoo and Barbershop in Toronto, where Bieber got his new tattoo, addressed the story to MTV News via phone on Tuesday, May 18. "It was back in March, March 4th or 5th," Byrne revealed.
"The guy who tattooed him, Charlie, is a lifelong friend of Jeremy's, Justin's dad - they're all from Stratford," the Gun Tattoo and Barbershop's co-owner added. "When it came up, he called Charlie and asked if he could do it and keep it quiet. We made sure the shop was empty and there was nobody around."
On reports mentioning Beiber got the tattoo shortly after his 16th birthday in March, Byrne later confirmed, "It was a 16th birthday tattoo. I guess his dad has it, and one of his uncles. It's the outline of »
