Justin Bieber’s New Face Tattoo: Got Jesus, Or Just Another Case Of Hip Hop Appropriation?


We hate to say it, but seeing as hip hop stars Wiz Khalifa, Soulja Boy, Rick Ross, The Game, Lil Wayne and retired professional boxer Mike Tyson have been sporting face tattoos with maximum emphasis on style and minimum emphasis on drama for awhile, is it yet another case of famous white boy did it second?

Well if it is, don’t go telling that to pop star Justin Bieber’s people because this morning it has been trending like new money on social media that the star of “What Do You Mean?” fame has gotten himself a tiny tattoo of a cross on his face right next to his right eye.

While Bieber himself is staying mum about it, JonBoy, the tattoo artist who did the honors on May 6th at a tattoo parlor in NYC, wasn’t shy at all when he spoke to Us Weekly about exactly what this new bit of face art does mean to the star  – and it would seem to center on religious fervour versus traditional Bieber Fever.

“Justin came in last night and decided on a small cross near the corner of his eye,” JonBoy stated on the subject, adding: “it represents his journey in finding purpose with God.”

Well that’s not what we were expecting… to be sure.
