Let's be honest, the idea that the Never Say Never boy would some day be sporting long summer locks and a body full of tattoos has never occurred to anyone. But here we are. And here he is.
I'm sure die-hard Justin Bieber fans have already come to terms with his new look, though. After all, Justin loves everything art-related: singing, songwriting, playing drums and guitar, acting and dancing. He has also repeatedly shared his love for body art on Instagram, and is known to ink symbols of the people he loves onto his body. He still had a tattoo of Selena Gomez in July, even though he was already engaged to Hailey Baldwin. Because just like feelings, tattoos are difficult to let go of.
Now, apparently, Justin and Hailey are tied together not only by marriage, but matching tattoos as well. These tattoos were inked in November and kept secret ever since. Until now.
The new tattoo is finally revealed.
Justin has done a really good job keeping it secret.He's known for always wearing some kind of hat or beanie over his hair, with bangs sticking out from under it.
Plus, the new tattoo is tiny.
He also never talked about the tattoo himself.Never has he shared a close-up of the tattoo on Instagram or mentioned it on social media. Not even by accident.
There are two possible meanings behind his new tattoo.nine.
But it's just as likely to be a tribute to his new wife Hailey Baldwin.According to Mirror, Justin, 24, and Hailey, 21, got married in September and, two months later, got matching couples' tattoos to celebrate it. If you're wondering what "grace" has to do with Hailey, Unilad has a great explanation for you: "She’ll likely be the only one ever close enough to actually read it!"
But Hailey is a devoted Christian too.Style Caster says they even belong to the same Hillsong Church in Los Angeles. Hailey has "pray" tattooed on her hands and a cross on her neck. Justin has several tattoos dedicated to his faith, but the most impressive one has to be the giant cross right in the middle of his chest.
It's not yet known, though, what Hailey's matching tattoo is.Neither the design nor the place of the tattoo has been revealed. However, a recent post on JonBoy's Instagram account has featured Justin, Hailey, and the caption "Style&Grace."
This might mean that Hailey's secret tattoo is "style".
There's also confusion about who gave the two their first matching tattoos.It was JonBoy who posted the photo of Justin on Instagram on the New Year's Day, ending 2018 with a personal note: "2018 was a lot of work for me. Both in tattooing and inner work I thought I would never have to face. So many times wanting to give up asking God to take me home."
He then turned to his clients and friends.“But then I'm reminded what my purpose in this world is through people like you who get tattooed by me and share your life of struggles, anxieties, lost love ones, memories and victories through these little tattoos that have some of the biggest meaning behind them."
He finished off with a sincere thank you."Thank you. Thank you to my clients who have become some of my best friends. I love you all! God’s grace is sufficient in our weakness and it is by Gods love we here for 2019!"
However, it was another celebrity tattoo artist who was the first one to talk about Justin and Hailey's matching tattoos.Page Six back in November: "They each got a tattoo. Justin's tattoo is on his face, and I haven't seen any photos of it -- so he's doing a good job of laying low." "It's really thin and delicate. And [it's] also not a traditional couples' tattoo . . . I don't want to give away what it is until press gets a hold of it."
JonBoy and Bang Bang are two of Justin's favorite tattoo artists, who helped cover his upper body and parts of his legs with art.
In April, 2018, he posted on Instagram a photo of his torso, completely covered in ink, top to bottom.nine.
He said on Instagram that, together, all of his tattoos took 100 hours to complete.
"Grace" is actually not his first face tattoo.E!, back in 2016, that he had tattooed a tiny little cross in the corner of Justin's eye earlier that year. "It was a representation of his faith in Jesus and his journey with finding purpose in God."
Even though most of his tattoos are there to honor God, he has plenty of other impressive ones with non-religious messages.
The crown (top left side of his chest).Capital FM.
The American eagle.
The lion (left side of his chest).
The two angels fighting evil (on each side of the torso).Capital FM has reported, "Bang Bang [...] revealed the meaning behind the two celestial figures, "We added two angels, one on each side. Below each one, they're dominating the evil. Whenever I do an epic piece, there needs to be the positive and negative. There needs to be a balance [...] Below each of the angels, there is a demon that needs to be defeated. The skeleton on one side and the serpent on the other." "It's symbolic of Gothic art and the struggle between the light and dark, the good and the evil, Yin and Yang."
The treble clef (behind the left ear).
The chi (left arm).Capital FM speculates, another expression of Justin's religious side. However, it could also be the Chinese symbol, a popular tattoo choice, meaning that there's energy flowing throughout everything within and outside of us.
Finally, the compass (back of the left arm).
Hailey is not far behind Justin with her body art, though.With over 19 tattoos already, she says she's "running out of spots to put little ones," reports nine. "Eventually, when I have kids one day, I want to get my kids' names."
But what do the fans think of Justin's new tattoo?
