The night after flashing his chest for screaming fans at Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve, Justin Bieber was shirtless once again -- but this time, it wasn't for the ladies.

On Wednesday, the 18-year-old Canuck dropped his top to get the symbol for his hometown hockey team, the Stratford Cullitons, tattooed on his left shoulder blade.

"My grandfather always took me to the stratford culliton every friday night this is for u Grampa," Bieber wrote on Instagram on Sunday, adding, "My man @chenterios hooked it up."

Chente is the owner and operator of Under The Gun Tattoo Company in Los Angeles, and he took to his Instagram Thursday to post a photo of a shirtless Bieber, stating he had tattooed the "Boyfriend" singer the evening before.

Bieber got his new ink the same day he sent his "thoughts and prayers" to the family of a paparazzo who died on Tuesday trying to get a picture of the Ontario native's white Ferrari. That was the same day that Bieber was infamously photographed holding what appeared to be a joint while partying in a Newport Beach hotel.

"Trying to be better. U get knocked down, u get up," Bieber tweeted on Saturday, the day after the photos were released on TMZ, adding, "I never want to let any of you down. I love u."

But it seems Bieber's fans aren't holding this alleged transgression against him -- at least his Vancouver fans aren't. A self-styled Belieber who goes by the Twitter handle @kidrauhlswag6 posted a petition to get the Canadian pop star to come back to Vancouver (where he played in October) for the second leg of his "Believe" tour. The post appeared last week under the title "#BieberToVanCity," and it has 52 signatures so far with the Twitter hashtag trending in Canada on Monday.

"Us Beliebers of Vancouver and the rest of the North-West North America (Seattle, Portland, Edmonton, Calgary) didnt get another Believe Date for the second leg of the tour and we are honestly really upset!" the petition reads. "So many true beliebers didnt get to see the Believe tour and we've tried trending #BieberToVancity SO many times and once it was top trending in Canada and high up in the world but of course Justin wasnt online and neither was any of the crew:( Please release a second date for Vancouver, BC for the second leg of the Believe tour!!! thank you!"
