Justin Bieber’s tattoo obsession continues, his latest addition being a photo-realistic tat of his mother’s eye on the inside of his elbow, according to E! News. And to hear his favorite tattoo artist tell it, getting the work done took some scheduling. “Justin called me around 10:30 pm last night and asked if I could open up the shop. We are both so busy, and our schedules are pretty hectic, so I opened up the shop, and he came in around 4:00 a.m.,” New York City-based artist Keith Bang Bang McCurdy says. “Justin chose a female eye that best represented what he was looking for. I did the tattoo in black and white, because it complimented his other tattoos. I wanted it to compliment him, and not be a distraction from him.” If what he’s added to his body this year is any indication, Bieber isn’t done yet. “I’m not sure what his next tattoo will be, but we both joked about how we are addicted to tattoos,” McCurdy says. “He joked, saying he’s only 19, and he already has this many tattoos. The tattoo took about 30 minutes, and we left when the sun came up, which was pretty cool.”

Bieber revealed the artwork on Instagram on Wednesday, writing, “@bangbangnyc did this art ., Moms always watching ;)”
