Justin Bieber tattooed at 40,000 feet
Justin Bieber (we’re sorry) has joined a very exclusive mile-high club.
The Biebs was tattooed at 40,000 feet by New York artist Bang Bang, because turbulence? Who cares!
Yes, the Biebs was inked on a flight to Canada just five days after his Miami Beach arrest, according to the New York Daily News. Bang Bang says he hopes they hold the record for the highest-altitude tattoo sesh.
“It was really difficult. The plane was shaking, so it’s like trying to do a tattoo while you’re driving over rocks … and so I have to compensate and be so, so accurate,” said Bang Bang, whose clients include Rihanna, Adele and Katy Perry. “… I didn’t anticipate it would be so difficult. This was the most difficult tattoo I’ve ever done for sure.”
And since you’re absolutely dying to know, Bieber got a black and grey cross tattooed on his chest and, get this, the word “Forgive” on his lower abdomen.
Band Bang’s going to contact Guinness World Records to see if the pair’s risky stunt — which went down on Bieber’s private jet — means they’ve won at stupidity.
“I’m trying to see if we broke a record because we filmed it and documented it,” Bang Band said.
