Celebrities looooove adding to their extensive tattoo collections, and thanks to social media we get to see all the intricate, sometimes pretty, and often weird creations up-close. Whether they’re minimalist line drawings by Toronto-based artist-to-the-stars Curt Montgomery, or finely scrawled mantras by L.A.’s favourite, Jonathan Valena, the celeb tattoo train is an endless sources of inspo.

Just days after debuting several hand tattoos, Hailey Bieber is inked once again. On September 4, celebrity tattoo artist Dr. Woo (a.k.a Brian Woo) shared a photo of Bieber to Instagram showing off the model's latest ink—the word "lover" tattooed in script on her neck. Does the font look kind of familiar? It should. Not only does Bieber's new ink seemingly refer to Taylor Swift's new hit album of the same name, but it's written in almost the exact same font.
This tidbit is *especially intriguing* considering that Swift has a long and not-so-chummy history with Bieber's hubby, Justin. The two singers were recently in a very public confrontation about the role Justin played in his manager Scott Braun's alleged bullying of Swift. (Braun recently acquired Swift's music catalogue to which she responded how "sad and grossed out" she was about the deal.) Oh, and Hailey Bieber has publicly supported her husband in the Braun/Swift/Bieber feud.
So there's *a lot* going on and we're not really sure what to make of it yet.
