You will never guess what Justin Bieber did in his private plane

2014-03-24 22:00
Los Angeles - Justin Bieber got tattooed during a plane journey.

The 20-year-old singer has joined the mile high club - by getting two religious symbols inked at 40 000 feet above the ground on a private flight from Panama to Canada last month.

The new tattoos were etched by famed artist Bang Bang, the man behind Rihanna and Katy Perry's body art, just days after Justin was arrested for allegedly driving under the influence (DUI) and drag racing in Miami.

He told the New York Daily News: "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. I've gotta admit that my adrenaline was through the roof. I didn't anticipate it would be so difficult.

"This was the most difficult tattoo I've ever done for sure.

"It was extremely bumpy and the pilot would call back to us and say 'Hey we've got a little bit of turbulence coming up.' We were trying to find the pockets when the plane was smooth."

The As Long As You Love Me singer opted for a giant cross on his chest and the word "Forgive" on the right hand side of his stomach as a tribute to his belief in Jesus Christ and his ability to forgive people for their sins.

The session took an hour and a half and Bang Bang is hopeful the stunt might get the pair into the Guinness Book of World Records.

He added: "I'm trying to see if we broke a record because we filmed it and documented it, it would be a cool record to have broken, the highest altitude tattoo."

Justin is currently awaiting trial following his arrest on 28 January and has pleaded not guilty to driving under the influence, resisting arrest and driving without a valid licence.
