Justin Bieber gets Banksy's Balloon Girl tattoo

JUSTIN Bieber has added a new tattoo, which appears to be a copy of Banksy's Balloon Girl, to his collection of over 20 designs.

The 20-year-old star has amassed a collection over 20 designs since he was first tattooed at the age of 16, and he's now added a new inking to his lower arm, which appears to be very similar to the street artist's iconic Balloon Girl piece.

The 'Boyfriend' hitmaker posted a picture of the tattoo to his Instagram account but later decided to take it down, although a Facebook account - which appears to belong to Banksy himself - had reposted the image with the caption "controversial" beforehand.

The head and arm of the Girl with a Balloon design is also visible in a photo posted by Glen Hartless - the tattoo artist who inked Justin's latest body art - which was accompanied by a caption thanking the heartthrob for the project last week.

He wrote: "Another late night working. Thanks for having me at your studio @justinbieber (sic)."

Justin's previous tattoos include an illustration of a compass on his tricep and a treble clef behind his left ear, both of which were unveiled in January, as well as a portrait of Jesus on his left calf and the world 'Believe' in a graffiti style design on his left forearm.
