Another tattoo for Justin Bieber? Never say never!

It's no secret that the "Baby" singer has a wide collection of tattoos spread throughout his body. But while stepping out in Los Angeles this week, the artist got fans talking with a brand-new ink job.

In pictures obtained by E! News, the pop star showed off a laurel wreath tattoo on his collarbone when arriving to the Dog Pound gym.

Fans also got another view of the new ink job on Instagram when he posted a selfie. "MY STASH MY LIFE DEAL WITH IT HAHA," he shared online.

So what could the tattoo possibly mean? In all fairness, Justin hasn't addressed the specific meaning. The laurel wreath, however, has been a symbol of triumph and mobility tracing back to Greek mythology. There also could be a religious meaning with many viewing the wreath as a symbol of God's victory and power.

It's about to be a big year for the Biebs who just celebrated the premiere of his docu-series Justin Bieber: Seasons on YouTube.

In addition to performing at the 2020 iHeartRadio Music Awards, Justin will hit the road on a massive stadium tour. He also has a brand-new album coming out, which will feature his latest hit "Yummy."

"As humans, we are imperfect," Justin shared while announcing the big news. "My past, my mistakes, all the things that I've been through. I believe that I'm right where I'm supposed to be, and God has me right where he wants me."

Before the tour begins and more new music is released, take a look at more of Justin's tattoos in our gallery below.

Justin debuted the Roman numerals in January 2013, but fans are unsure of what they represent. "I, IX, VII and V" would translate to "1, 9, 7 and 5" — 1975 in Roman numerals is MCMLXXV.
