Justin Bieber Skateboards Shirtless In Sydney, Ripped And Tattooed [Video]

Justin Bieber gave his freshly inked ‘Eagle’ tattoo an airing when he and his friends swung by the Waterloo Skate Park in Sydney for a spot of shirtless skateboarding on Sunday.

The 19-year-old singer cut a fit figure as he displayed ripped abs and an almost full sleeve of tattoos while going through his paces around the grounds.

Justin wore loose fitting blue pants, a blue cap, and maroon canvas flats for the outing. Naturally, his white underwear peeked above his low-slung slacks.

Pictures of the “Heartbreaker” singer show him deep in concentration as he executes jumps on his skateboard.

But Bieber did make time to mix it up with a small group of kids who gathered around the superstar in their midst.

Australia’s Nine News tweeted the heartthrob a photo of his encounter with the children earlier on Sunday. To which Justin replied,” it was fun (sic).”

It’s possible the Canadian was keen to skate off some of the drama of his Australia trip, which has included a strip club visit and issues regarding his bodyguards’ interactions with photographers.

Now coming to the end of his Believe world tour Down Under, Bieber also came under fire this past week from government officials in Queensland after he spray-painted graffiti at a hotel he stayed at.

The pop star tagged a tableau of colorful cartoon characters and other images after he was given permission by the QT Gold Coast Hotel in Surfers Paradise on Wednesday morning after a sold-out show in Brisbane.

Following public criticism by the Gold Coast City Mayor Tom Tate — who hand-delivered a “graffiti removal kit” to the hotel, tweeted the singer to clean up his “mess,” and has since given Bieber an ultimatum to erase the graffiti or perform at a Christmas Carol concert on December 7 — the hotel posted several statements on its Facebook page confirming their permission while describing their famous guest as “a lovely young guy.”

“It was a coup for the hotel to have Justin want to paint a piece of art in appreciation of his stay,” the hotel said in e-mailed statement on Friday.

“This piece of art is now available to be viewed by fans of the artist and we believe that it is a wonderful addition to the colorful Gold Coast arts scene.”

Despite the QT’s assertion that Bieber’s artwork is on their private property, Gold Coast City Council has ordered the hotel to remove or paint over the images on the wall.

For their part, the hotel has since launched an online search to find local graffiti artists to promote the area and the art form with an offer to spray-paint a wall at their complex.

Meanwhile, Bieber’s concerts so far in Australia have delighted fans, while reviewers noted his 30 minute delay at his first Sydney’s Allphones Arena show on Friday.

Despite that brief delay audiences reportedly screamed up a storm as the idol tore through favorites such as “Boyfriend,” “Somebody To Love,” “Baby,” and “One Less Lonely Girl.”

Justin also debuted “Hold Tight” live at his second Sydney show. The song is a cut from his “Music Mondays” series, and footage linked below reveals how far the singer’s new music has traveled as the crowd sang along.

Bieber is set to play Melbourne on Monday and Tuesday followed by a concert in Adelaide.

The Believe world tour wraps in Perth on December 8.
