Fatone says his former NSYNC group members knew he was behind the costume, but he never came out and confirmed that it was him under the mask.

The former NSYNC group member, Joey Fatone, came in second place on “Dancing with the Stars” in 2007. Now he is celebrating his time on “The Masked Singer,” with a tattoo.

Fatone shared a photo of his latest piece on Instagram, showing the large rabbit tattooed on his calf. The color realism ink has the masks’ red eyes and wardrobe, on a pink and blue background.

Zoey Taylor, tattoo artist and owner of The Warren Tattoo on the Sunset Strip, created Fatone’s piece, writing on Instagram, “Got to do a fun tattoo for @realjoeyfatone of his Rabbit character from his show @maskedsingerfox.”

The Inquisitr had previously reported that Joey Fatone was the rabbit on “The Masked Singer” during the show’s semi-finals.

Joey said that his former ‘NSYNC group member, Lance Bass, and his friend Nick Lachey, both immediately knew he was behind the costume, but that he never came out and confirmed that it was him under the mask.

The judges: Nicole Scherzinger, Ken Jeong, Jenny McCarthy, and Robin Thicke, were all happy to see Fatone behind the mask.

After being eliminated from the show he said, “I didn’t tell Nick specifically I was on it. He kind of asked me and I brushed him off until now. Lance [Bass] talked about it and I just kind of kept it quiet a little bit. But the minute the second episode aired he goes, ‘Dude, I know it’s you.’ They know exactly my voice, my tone and everything.”

Fatone continued, “So then last night Lance texts me like, ‘Yay! I can finally tell people now. I don’t have to shut my mouth anymore.’”
