Justin Bieber may not be a newbie when it comes to tattoos, but that still doesn’t make his latest ink addition any less shocking.
It takes up a large portion of his thigh and says “Better at 70” in black. The singer went on to explain in his Instagram caption that this phrase means a lot to him (we hope so, because it looks permanent).
“I look back at a lot of things in my life, mistakes, insecurities, and although I have felt I’ve wasted a lot of time it also makes me want to be better faster and longer!” he wrote. “For me personally I want to work every day to be BETTER AT 70.”
It’s a good message that will probably resonate with his fans just as much as it does with him. A quick scroll through his Instagram comments shows almost nothing but heart eye emojis and words of support and encouragement.
