This is unimaginably tragic.
The team did release a statement on the matter, though (below):
A rose by any other name would STILL FREAKING HURT!!
His main man at Big Bang Parlor in the Big Apple hooked him up with a blossoming rose tattoo, complete with some fluffy clouds
and rainbows and unicorns and everything else that bends gender roles.
Bieber stayed in the shop for about four hours, only breaking to eat pizza and maintain royalty status in the world of social media.
After the completion of his sleeve, Justin posed for some photos with fans who had been waiting for him outside in the rain (see above).
Now that his arm's done, we wonder if he'll be going back to ink even more body parts (click here to see more of his tats). Perhaps a banana? A mango? A coconutty pineapple??
