The boy wonder is adding new ink to his teenage body.
Justin Bieber has tweeted a photo of himself lying shirtless on a bed. But his lack of clothing is not the topic of interest in this tweet… It’s his brand new tattoo: A small crowd emblem just under his right shoulder blade.
The “As Long As You Love Me” singer addressed the new tattoo in the twitpic’s caption, saying, “new tattoo its a crown if you couldn't tell.”

In the shot, Bieber gives a weird sneer at the camera as he lounges on a fury, striped bedspread. His legs disappear behind his torso that fills the foreground of the frame.
The tattoo is a simple black-ink itched picture of a crown fit for the royal dome of a ruler in a faraway and potentially fictitious land.
Bieber’s addiction to the tattoo needle last came to light when he made an appearance on “The Late Show With David Letterman” when the host begged the singer not to get any more work done.
Sorry, Dave… Looks like your “grandpa” advice went in one ear and out the other…
The last tattoo was a simple black text lettering of Justin’s recent favorite phrase “Believe.” The body art was the work of NYC celebrity tattoo artist Bang Bang. No word yet on whether this new ink is Bang Bang’s work as well…
Justin is up for a slew of Moonmen trophies at this week’s VMA’s, including “Best Male Video” and “Best Pop Video.” He will also vie for the brand new honor of “Most Share-Worthy Video” for his groundbreaking single “Boyfriend.”
