He's known for his impressive collection of tattoos but now Justin Bieber has added a nose piercing to his list of body modifications. The Canadian heart-throb showed off his new bling while on his Purpose world tour in two topless black-and-white photos on Friday.

The first photo showed the 22-year-old sat up in bed with messy hair and a clear shot of his nose stud. However, the original image was swiftly deleted for unknown reasons.

Later that day, the singer uploaded a second image of him lying in bed where his Beliebers could just make out the new accessory. The snap racked up more than 1.5 million likes and over 45,000 comments from his adoring fans.

The inked up star recently revealed the meanings behind his various pieces of artwork, as well as confessing he has tried to cover up the tattoo he famously got of Selena Gomez on his wrist when the pair were still dating.

The star has tried to cover a tattoo of Selena Gomez

"This is my ex-girlfriend," he explained in a video with GQ magazine, pointing to the tattoo which is located on his wrist, surrounded by a sleeve of designs. "So I tried to cover her face up with some shading, but people still know."

Justin confessed that he tried to keep his first few tattoos in areas where they weren't particularly noticeable, explaining it was "because the world didn't know I was getting tattoos."

The superstar went on to share a few more of his favourite tattoos including the sweet tributes to his mother – he has an inking of her eye on his arm as well as her birthday in roman numerals on his chest. "Seems like I have a lot of stuff to do with my mum," he quipped, before revealing he'd had another tattoo done on his side, this time with his dad.
