Another one! Justin Bieber added to his body art with a new face tattoo when he stopped by West 4th Tattoo Parlor in NYC on Friday, May 6.
A source tells Us that the “Company” singer, 22, and close pal Joe Termini got matching cross tattoos just below their left eyes before heading over to Manhattan hot spot Up & Down, where Bieber surprised the crowd with an impromptu performance of recent hits “Sorry” and “What Do You Mean?”
The entertainer’s dedicated fan base — collectively known as the Beliebers — weren’t too happy with the new ink.
“Justin Bieber got a face tattoo, does he think he’s Lil Wayne or something?!” one user wrote on Twitter, while another joked, “If Justin Bieber really got a face tattoo I’m demanding a refund on the last 8 years.”
Earlier this year, Bieber told GQ magazine that he’d consider getting a face tattoo — but not for a few decades.
“Maybe when I’m really old, not super old, but maybe, like, 40s or 50s or something,” he explained. “One above my eyebrow or something small.”
The songwriter added, “I think if they’re done right, they could be cool, but nothing super crazy all over the face.”

Bieber, who performed at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center earlier in the week, has more than 50 tattoos, including one that reads “Purpose” (his latest album’s title), a giant cross, a pair of wings and Jesus Christ.
He showed off his new ink on Saturday, May 7, posting a pic on Instagram.
