Justin Bieber Shows Off Tattoo Artist Skills, Inks Mouse and ‘Swaggy’ on Pro (PHOTOS)


By Daniel Gates


Justin Bieber turned tattoo artist — for a day.

Photos of the pop star inking famed tattoo professional Bang Bang last June have surfaced, with Bieber drawing a muscle-bound mouse and the word “SWAGGY” on the artist’s leg.


Bang Bang (real name: Keith McCurdy) is responsible for the “Believe” tattooed on The Biebs’ arm.

However, the tattoo exchange could be problematic, as Bieber does not have a New York state tattoo artist license.

According to reports, the Health Department fine for “operating with an unlicensed tattoo artist on site” can be as high as $2,000.
