As of 2016, Bieber's tattoo count was at about 56, but his latest ink just might be among his most elaborate yet.
Justin Bieber surprised fans with some dramatic new body art over the weekend.
Justin has added lots of tatts to his collection over the years, but this seems to be his most extensive addition at once!
The gothic cross on the centre of his chest remains. One follower asked, "Justin your body is covered with tattoos right now and it's not as good as it used to be you're so obsessed with tattoos why ruin your body with them they're not worth it" while another wrote, "Justin u loooked sooooooooooooooooo gooooooood in 2015 why did u do all of this?"More news: The Regeneron Pharmaceuticals Inc.

In tribute to his mother, Pattie Mallette, Justin has the year of her birth, 1975, inscribed under his collarbone in Roman numerals.
Celebrity tattoo artist Bang Bang, who actually put the ink on Bieber, took to his own Instagram to explain what went into the process.
Fans had mixed reactions when it came to the huge tattoo, with one commenting: "Looks nice but missing your lovely chest".

"Justin will be back and I know he looks forward to performing for you and with you all again".
