Justin Bieber’s mom on his latest tattoo: ‘don’t you have enough yet?’

Justin Bieber has a new album out called Justice. The album dropped to some mixed reactions for using quotes from Martin Luther King, Jr., but Justin ultimately earned The King’s Center stamp of approval. Which is more than Justin got from his own mom on his latest art. On Sunday, Justin posted the IG above to his Instagram, of him receiving his latest tattoo, a peach, on his neck. He gave credit to his tattoo artist Dr. Woo in the caption. The peach is in honor of his single, Peaches, from the album. Most of those commenting left enthusiastic emojis or some form of congratulatory “woo-hooing.” Except for Pattie Mallette, otherwise known as Justin’s mom, who commented, “Don’t you have enough yet?”

Justin Bieber’s mom has some thoughts about the “Peaches” singer’s latest addition to his tattoo collection.

On Saturday, Bieber shared an Instagram photo of himself getting a peach tattoo on his neck. His latest tattoo is seemingly an ode to his hit single “Peaches” off his latest album, “Justice.”

Bieber captioned the photo with a peach and pencil emoji, tagging his tattoo artist Doctor Woo.

While most Instagram commenters praised the 27-year-old for the new ink – his mom, Pattie Mallette, wasn’t as congratulatory. “Don’t you have enough yet?” she wrote in a comment, adding a weary emoji.

During an interview on Sirius XM Hits 1, the “Lonely” singer teased that he would get the body art, “like a small peach on my body somewhere.”

“I promised myself I didn’t want to get tattoos on my hands,” Bieber added. “Something about just being able to wear a suit and not having tattoos on my hands, I don’t know.”

You can almost hear Justin groaning, “Moo-oom, c’mon!” It’s funny that Justin is dedicated not to mark up his hands. I think if I were committed to not marking an area, it would be the neck. However, I suppose if I wanted to completely cover all artwork, I’d wear a turtleneck before I’d wear gloves indoors. I’m surprised this is the tatt that pushed Pattie over the edge. Since Justin has over 60 already, one more isn’t going to make a difference. Not that I think there is a correct number of tattoos to have, but I could see a mom/grandmother rolling their eyes at the first two and putting their foot down on the third. Like, three is the threshold for them. But when someone gets to Justin’s numbers you almost start seeing the blank spots, “oh, you missed a spot – above your navel. Maybe a beach ball?”

It was the “weary emoji” after Pattie’s comment that caught my attention. Pattie doesn’t seem to have tattoos judging by photos of her, so maybe she’s not a fan in general, in which case every new bit on Justin would probably get an eye roll. Or maybe she just was having a go at Justin. If my kids were famous rock stars with a social media presence, this is the kind of thing I would do – just to remind them I could still tease them. In which case, mad props to Momma Pattie. I have to think that Hailey agrees with her too.

    Tattoos are very addictive. I know few people who get just one.

    I do feel proud of how much growing up he’s done and how he’s working on himself. I can see a difference.

      I stopped at one. The first I got as a result of being rather tiddly following some exams; I hated it and had it covered with a bigger tat that reminds me of my favourite place in the world. But that is enough for me.

  2. Léna says:

    Ah! Sounds like my mom. I “only” have 4. One more planned in two weeks, one (huge) planned during the summer. I never tell my parents before getting them because they always try to make me feel bad about it.

  3. Lady Luna says:

    I want to get another one, but still not sure which.

  4. Jocelyn Cox says:

    My son is almost 21 and living away from home for the first time. About 6 months in, he surprised us with his first 2 tattoos.

    I don’t have a problem with tattoos that are well done and thought out. I was “supportive” of these, knowing him they could have been ssoooo much worse.

    I know he is planning more and I just want to say to him “jesus, dude, save some skin for later. You dont need to get them all right now. Develop your personality, get some life experience behind you before you get any more.” But would not go over too well. I have to remember it’s his body but man alive it’s hard to keep my mouth shut.

    I cringe to think if I had inked my body with the shit I thought was so deep and important to me when I was 20.

    She should drop the mom act she doesn’t care, she literally gave him drugs when he was a minor.

    There is nothing enduring about her anti semitic ass.

    Yeah, I remember what you wrote about Scooter. He is not my favorite person by a long shot but you can sit your ass down somewhere, Eva Braun wannabe.

    • Angel says:

      Wait she wrote anti semitic stuff about scooter braun ? damn

      • Dini says:

        @ Angel I’m paraphrasing here but it was something along the lines of when they met Scooter she prayed they’d be sent a Christian label and manager and not Jewish like 🛴
