Did you believe us when we said there would be more Justin Bieber tattoos in the near future? Well, you should have! Justin Bieber got a new tattoo on his arm, which he recently debuted for fans on live TV, before a brief scuffle in which David Letterman tried to rub the tat off. Justin Bieber’s new tattoo was revealed on June 20, 2012 during an appearance on the David Letterman Show, and it says “Believe” in big black capital letters. The new Justin Bieber tattoo is inked on the inside of his left arm, near his elbow, and features funky, playful font that definitely seems like Justin Bieber’s style. David Letterman was disapproving of Justin Biebers new tattoo though, warning the young pop star not to go crazy and end up with “murals” all over his body. Don’t listen to him, JB, we love your new tattoo!
Justin Bieber’s Arm Tattoo Meaning
Justin Bieber’s Believe tattoo is a tribute to his new album, “Believe,” which was released on Wednesday of this week. According to Bieber, the release of his new album was an important day for him, and he decided to immortalize the occasion in a permanent arm tattoo. Justin Bieber isn’t the first singer to get an album title inked on his body though. In 2010, Lady Gaga got a large blue and white unicorn inked on the outside of her left thigh that reads “Born this Way,” which represented the name of her new album at the time.
“Believe” is Justin Bieber’s third studio album, featuring the hit single “Boyfriend,” which has topped the HOT100 Billboard charts since its official release earlier this year. As Justin Bieber makes the transition from a novice singer to a teen heartthrob and pop sensation, the important moments and inspirations in his life have been marked with Justin Bieber tattoos. Although most of Justin Biebers tattoos have been a representation of the singer’s religious beliefs, this new Believe tat introduces a new kind of inspiration for Justin Bieber.
More Tattoos for Justin Bieber?
Justin Bieber has six tattoos and counting, three of which were debuted in 2012 alone. So far, the Justin Bieber tattoos include a small bird inked on his left hip, a Hebrew “Jesus” tattoo inked on his left ribcage, a large star tattooed on his left elbow, a Jesus image inked on his left leg, and and a pair of praying hands tattooed on his left calf. Notice how all Justin Biebers tattoos are inked on the left side of his body, including his new Believe tattoo on his arm? This is another similarity to Lady Gaga, as all nine Lady Gaga tattoos are also inked on the left side of her body, leaving her right side “normal,” as she says.
We don’t blame the Biebs for getting a little inspiration from Lady Gaga, although at the rate he’s going, he might end up with more tats than the 26-year-old pop queen. This Justin Bieber Believe tattoo is the Canadian pop star’s sixth tattoo, and he is only 18! We’re feeling lots of Justin Bieber tattoos in the future. But as Justin Bieber said during his interview on the David Letterman Show, “I’m not going for the Sixteenth Chapel.” Or Sistine Chapel to those of us who didn’t get our education in Canadian schools.
