“2018 was a lot of work for me. Both in tattooing and inner work I thought I would never have to face. Thank you to my clients who have become some of my best friends. I love you all! God’s grace is sufficient in our weakness and it is by God’s love we [are] here for 2019!”
Prior to this reveal, celebrity tattoo artist Bang Bang had laid claim to the tattoo. Bang Bang — otherwise known as Keith McCurdy — revealed his claim to Page Six TV. Then, it was stated by Bang Bang that the tattoo was a couple’s tattoo, inked for Justin in honor of his new wife, 22-year-old Hailey Baldwin.
The reveal from Jonboy did confirm McCurdy’s earlier claim that the tattoo was a “little word” in “delicate” scroll. Now, it seems that there is conflicting information floating around about exactly who is responsible for Justin Bieber’s newest tattoo. Was the artist Bang Bang or Jonboy? However, according to Yahoo Entertainment, Jonboy was simply admiring the tattoo.
Justin Bieber is covered in tattoos by this point, most of which are on his torso and his arms. His new wife, Hailey Baldwin, also received a tattoo by Bang Bang — but this ink has yet to have been made public knowledge.
