Justin Bieber's flying bird tattoo is for real!

bieber-bird-on-hip.jpg Justin Bieber really does have a tattoo! And at age 16, that's technically illegal in most states.

But hey, he's the Biebster. He's cool. He's already got a Range Rover. Why not a tattoo?

Here's a photo (first seen on bestweekever.com) to prove that Justin got his tiny tattoo at the Son of a Gun tattoo parlor in Toronto, Canada.

Fans first spotted the tatt when he was photographed playing shirtless football on a Sydney beach.

Now reports are that the tattoo is a bird in-flight. And apparently, he's not the only Bieber to have one. Some members of his family have bird tattoos on their wrists.
