Justin Beiber Jesus Tattoo Split - H 2012

The 17-year-old pop phenom now has three religious tattoos, a dove, the name Jesus in Hebrew and now an image of Christ on the cross.

Justin Bieber showed off some brand new ink on Venice Beach, California this week. And a lot of it.

Shirtless and wearing a pair of black swim trunks that hung so hip-hop low that his underwear waistband showed, the teenage heartthrob revealed a honking tattoo of Jesus Christ, (aka the Son of God) his face uplifted to the heavens, wearing a crown of thorns, much like the image above.

The singer, 17, also has Jesus’ name tattooed in Hebrew on his rib cage an  an image of a dove on his left hip. BTW, his dad Jeremy Bieber, has a dove tattoo.

Bieber makes no secret of his deep faith. Never has. "I'm a Christian, I believe in God, I believe that Jesus died on a cross for my sins," he told The AP last year. "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. As soon as I start forgetting, I've got to click back and be like, you know, this is why I'm here."

Are the tattoos reminders of why he's here? Because three seems like a lot of reminders for a teenager. We know tattoos are considered fashion statements but most states don't let minors get ink without parental consent. So his parentals must be cool with it, right?
