Justin Bieber’s NYC Adventures: Tattoo Sleeves, iPhones, Fan Frolics [Video]

Justin Bieber is now the proud owner of a full tattoo sleeve, give or take a few inches.

The 19-year-old, who has at least 19 other inkings on his body, unveiled the spanking new rose design via his Instagram account on August 2.

The teen star uploaded two close-ups of a blush pink rose positioned above his existing owl tattoo on his left arm.

One of the pictures posted was simply captioned: “Art.”

Justin and his crew were spotted arriving at celebrity tattooist Keith “Bang Bang” McCurdy’s tattoo parlor on the Lower East Side in New York City, late on Thursday evening.

The group reportedly stayed for four hours while Bang Bang completed the singer’s sleeve, and a pizza order was seen being delivered to the salon during their visit.

For fans who had tracked Justin down and waited outside for him to come out, there was a reward.

Snapped as he left the parlor, the singer delighted fans by showing off his new ink and posing for pictures with them.

Bieber’s new rose tat comes hot on the heels of the “eye” design he also had inked by Bang Bang last month, which is thought to be inspired by his mother Pattie Mallette.

Bieber is in New York for three Believe tour dates.

After playing two shows at Newark, N.J’s Prudential Center on Tuesday and Wednesday, he spent part of his Thursday off completing his tattoo sleeve and topping up his tan at one of Portofino Sun Tanning’s five Manhattan studios.

Despite some reports of disruption at the swanky Langham Place on Fifth Avenue — the hotel where the Biebs is staying at while in the Big Apple — the army of singing, screaming, young girls camped outside at all hours appear to have no complaints.

E! News reports Justin had pizza sent out to fans waiting in the rain outside his hotel earlier this week, came out to hug and kiss fans and pose for snaps from time to time, and even played some of his new music to them on Thursday night.

Some fans tweeted that Bieber yelled at paparazzi who pushed them out of the way in their frantic attempts to snap the singer at the hotel.

Despite reportedly being denied entrance to the Griffin nightclub in the Meatpacking District in New York on Monday, Meatpacking District on Monday night, Bieber was apparently spotted at Chelsea nightclub 1Oak on Tuesday.

There have also been reports of girls being invited to hotspots the pop star visited — including the tattoo parlor — but these may or may not have taken place.

Bieber also hit the headlines this week after footage surfaced of him shoving an iPhone down his drop-crotch pants when it was thrown onstage at his Newark show on Tuesday. Fans in the crowd can be heard screamed delightedly at the stunt.

From the ridiculous to the sublime, on Wednesday Justin made history when his 2010 signature single “Baby” was certified Diamond. He was later spotted wearing a Guy Fawkes mask from the movie V for Vendetta as he made his way back to his hotel from his Wednesday N.J. concert.

The pop prince’s East Coast adventures look set to end soon however, as he only has one more show tonight at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center. So for those who can’t get enough of the singer, he’ll be all over MTV this weekend when time as we know it becomes Bieber O’Clock.
