Once you're ubiquitous, is it possible to get more ubiquitous? In any case, Justin Bieber is more ever-present than ever now that his likeness has a home at Madame Tussauds Wax Museum in London, and the locations in Amsterdam and New York.

Fans with the Justin Bieber wax figure in New York"TWINS! lol," the pop star tweeted with a picture of himself and the wax model in central London on Tuesday. Joined by his mother Pattie Lynn Mallette, he added "knew @studiomama had more kids! me and my mom and lil bro"

Fans -- and the Biebs himself -- hugged and snapped photos with the replica, which was revealed to a small crowd in the museum and to thousands of fans during a live Web stream. Faux Bieber debuted a few days after crowds of girls caused a Beatles-worthy ruckus in Liverpool, the Fab Four's hometown, and had to be broken up by police at the Hard Days Night hotel where the Grammy-nominated singer was staying.

Bieberwax_crop"thanks to the fans and @TussaudsLondon for today. from staring thru the glass to being made in wax inside... #neversaynever," he tweeted again.

The to-scale model, though a touch shorter than the 17-year-old, bears his wispy signature bangs pre-big-bucks-producing haircut.

"It's pretty incredible to see. I'm taller but this was a point in time," he said. "It looks awesome, thanks very much."

No word on whether he'll ever be united with the replica of his girlfriend Selena Gomez in Hollywood.
