In keeping with his religious tattoo theme, Justin Bieber got a new tattoo of a pair of praying hands inked on his leg, which he revealed on March 11, 2012. Pictures of Justin Bieber’s new tattoo cropped up earlier this month while the pop star was on a fishing trip in Florida with girlfriend Selena Gomez and some family members, including his grandparents. Justin Bieber’s praying hands tattoo is inked in black and white on his left calf, just below the Jesus tattoo Justin Bieber recently got, which was designed after the image of Jesus called Ecce Homo that dates back to 1610. With his new tattoo Justin Bieber now has five tattoos, three of which symbolize Justin Bieber’s Christian faith.
Justin Bieber’s New Tattoos in 2012
2012 has just gotten started, but Justin Bieber has already grabbed headlines twice for adding new ink to his growing tattoo collection. In January 2012, Justin Bieber sported a new tattoo featuring an image of Jesus wearing a crown of thorns. This month, March 2012, Justin Bieber has once again drawn attention to himself with a permanent marker of his Christian beliefs. At this rate, we could see another Justin Bieber tattoo before the year is up, maybe more!
Praying Hands Tattoo Meaning
The teen superstar is a vocal follower of Christianity and once said, “I’m a Christian, I believe in God, I believe that Jesus died on the cross for my sins.” Beiber continued, “I believe that I have a relationship and I’m able to talk to him and really, he’s the reason I’m here, so I definitely have to remember that.” Praying hands tattoo designs like the new ink Justin Bieber got on his leg are said to be chosen by people who firmly believe in the power of God and prayer.
Justin’s Other Religious Tattoos
Last May, Justin Bieber and his already inked-up dad hit the tattoo shop and got matching Hebrew tattoos inked on their ribcages. Justin Bieber’s Hebrew tattooreads “Yeshua,” which means Jesus, and was only the first of Justin Bieber’s religious tattoos. Since then, Justin Bieber has gotten two additional tattoos representing his faith, including his Jesus image tattoo, which Bieber revealed on January 4, 2012, and his new praying hands tat. Justin Bieber’s new tattoo is barely visible in pictures of the pop star, since he is wearing high socks that cover almost all of the tattoo, but it’s obvious Justin Bieber has some new ink, and he’s not afraid to show it off. Justin Bieber is only eighteen, but the Canadian-born pop star is already well on his way to sporting a tattoo collection of his rocker dad’s caliber. We’ll keep you updated!
Update: Bieber Adds Roses to Praying Hands Tat
On December 30, 2012, Justin Bieber posted a picture on Instagram of a new addition to his praying hands tattoo – an impressive arrangement of black and white roses. While the pop star and his girlfriend, Selena Gomez, were soaking up the sun, post-Christmas, in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, the Biebs once again shared a new tattoo with fans via social media, first flaunting his abs in a pic and then showing off the ornate roses on his leg. Although many people thought it was a strange choice for the pop star to place his praying hands tattoo right next to the Jesus portrait he got a few months prior, the new roses really tie the two religious tattoos together nicely. Wondering about Bieber’s reasoning for adding the roses? In response to a fan who asked “why, why, why,” the singer responded “because, because, because.” There you have it!
I think he is going to end up like lil wayne. with a sleeve and a vest of tattoos. All he needa are a few more like the jesus things on his legs and there you go. Its a shame. Next thing you know all the ‘beliebers’ are going to be getting sleeves of tattoos just to be like him. Tut tut
Shut up hater!
Imma ninja u suck so shut up hater
i am not a hater of him but i totally agree with you…..for me when all your body covered with tattoo, it will look scary and digusting
I look beautiful covered with tattoos. I was friendly, intelligent and approachable when I didn’t have tattoos, now that i am covered in art I will continue to be those things.
It’s a shame you have to say such nasty things about people just because they chose to get ink on their skin. I would never call someone scary or disgusting. Please be a little more accepting.
Get yourself some modesty.
shut up, even if he dose have tatoos! that dosent matter!!!!!!! go on with yur life and stay out of his!
You can’t tell people what to do…so just don’t be rude
Justin Bieber, I love all of ur tattoos. There so creative and inspiring. I’m so happy that you are dating Selena u guys ar ea good couple. I can’t believe people are hating on u guys, It must be stressful! 🙂 – Kiley
COMPLETELY AGREE!!! You said everthing that i wanted to say and what i say everday to haters.
Dear Justin Bieber I Am Addicted To You.I Love All Of Your Tattoos.And To Me It Really Dosent Madder If You End Up Like Lil Wayne.Cuzz I Will Still Have An Addiction!!!!
I love u Justin Bieber!!!
I love you sooooo much Jusin Bieber
your a queer.
Are we really still in the age where people got ridiculed for tattoos?? Its his body he can get as many tattoos as he wants! Every tattoo he has has a meaning to him. He can do what he wants. We love you Justin dont let these haters get you down!
oh so your saying that jesus is redicoulus???? DONT YOU DARE SAY THAT AGAIN! OR ELSE! >:@
1) That’s not what Janie is saying- she is saying ridiculed, not ridiculous. So what she is really saying is that people should not be making fun of Bieber’s tattoos. Definitely NOT making fun of God.
2) Our Christian faith calls us to love our neighbors and enemies and show them the light of Jesus. We are not supposed to accept those who speak ill of the Lord, but we are to love them as Jesus loved his aggressors. So please try to refrain from threats because we are here to love.
3) I have to admit that I think the tattoos are lame. A tat of Jesus’ face or praying hands does not make one any more holy and I don’t particularly like the design, but if Justin is able to help some people find God through his expression of his faith, more power to him. I guess I just think he is hurting his message a little when he covers his body in ink.
Or else what
i love you so much and i really addicted to you and can’t stop thinking of you…your JESUS tatto is very nice and showing your religous personality but i really don’t like your other tattos,and my suggestion is better to stop it…
i cant believe he would get a face tatoo but i think its a surprising thing to put jesus i havent read of someone doing that since most just put a cross. I DONT LIKE HIM, but i think its really inspiring for someone to do that, EVERYONE should do that! IM WEIRD….
Like super wierd, but still i dont like bieber but at the same time its INSPIRING OF WHAT HE DOES, THOUGH HIS SONGS SUCKS!!
Dont you dare say his songs suck you hater. dont post negative things on this at all!
It’s his body he can do whatever he wants to it and get as many tattoos as he pleases. IF his fans want to get as many tattoos as he has that’t not his doing. He doesn’t tell them to be like him and get tattoos like he does. People make their own decisions nobody makes it for them. So stop hating on him and let him be!!!!
Not reAlly a fan of his tatoos because..well in the bible it says jehova is god and jesus is his son(psalms 83:18) sooo..i wouldent get a tatoo of jesus or god cause also in the bible god says dnt make an image of me and also god says dnt contanimate youre body and it dosent say dnt get tatoos but still its contanimating youre body so yea thats my opinion but u know plp have a right to choose so if he wants to get tatoos well thats him.
Actually me dear it Does mention tatoo’s in the Bible…
Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead,
nor PRINT any MARKS upon you: I am the Lord.
Althought it is none of our business, and he is free to do as he pleases..
it’s still a shame.

Yo dawg. I’m not queer and my tattoos aren’t bullshit. My music just sucks and this is the way I cope with it, I get lots of tattoos and date a whore.
Hey it’s his body…he can do what he wants, so who are we to say…
but to get all those religious tatoo’s and clearly not know the word
of God which states in LEVITICUS 19:28 Ye shall not make any
cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor print any marks upon you.
I am the Lord.
It’s great for all the you young people to have someone to look up
to, but Please don’t mark your bodies for anybody. Justin Bieber
doesn’t know what he has done to himself..and if he DOES realize
it, it’s too bad.
Jesus does not approve.
Be smart kids.
ok first of all whoever keeps posting with the name justin bieber get a life your stupid for posting comments like that and … now everyone is entitled to their own opinion if you hate thats hes getting soo much tatts so be it go head hate him but its his body and obviously he likes it now Immm a HUGE BELIEBER AND I LOVE JUSTIN HES JUST SO SWEET AND HE HELPS THE NEEDED i personally like that tatts and i think its sexy but people if your a belieber even if you dont like tatts its understandable support him and what he likes on his body ok ? but me personally i just think as a belieber like the tatts or not we should support our idol!!
I love you justin! Your songs rock and your really cute…:) in one of your biggest fans… Don’t let anyone negitive get you down your a star and will always be to me! 🙂
Imma_Ninja: Shut up! You don’t know him or his Beliebers!
first of all , idont know why thaa fuck ya are all on him , like he was perfectly fine with no tattoes , now he looks like everybody else , and nobody is hating , so shut the fuck up. He was an adorable boy , now he looks like a thug , but support him. idgaf. Like who cares ?
I still can’t quite figure out why everyone is even fighting over a guy that 1. Probably will never even see these comments. 2. You will never get to meet or actually have a relationship with and 3. Who could care less whether ppl like his ink or not. Hence why he got in done. Jeez man, seriously be a fan but don’t bother wasting your time arguing about something completely irrelevant to your lives.
Justin’s tattoos have nothing to do with his music. I think that if he wants tattoos he should be able to have them without being judged… Like I’ve seen on a few other comments- it only matters that they mean something to him And that he likes them. I also like how he is representing and isn’t afraid to show his religion/ faith. I support him and always will.. Tattoos or not- he’s the sand person
