Just when you thought fifty inks of varying quality were quite enough for any self-respecting 22-year-old to show off how badass they are, Justin Bieber has pushed things over the edge by getting his face tattooed.
Naturally, the Biebs realizes that his face is just as much of a money maker as his music so he has barely made a scratch in his youthful skin, but it was certainly enough to push the Beliebers into civil war. Check out his new look in the image below:
If you look really closely, you can see a simple black cross nestling next to Bieber's eye, but apparently this one wasn't drawn on with sharpie.
But, What Does It Mean?
The dude who etched the magnifying glass-worthy cross on Bieber's angelic facade spoke out to US Magazine, and as anyone who has even a rudimentary knowledge of Christianity and Justin's newly rediscovered love of the Lord could tell you, it is all about God.
Tattoo artist Jonboy explained to the gossip mag, that the seemingly insignificant marking had colossal meaning when he said:
"Justin came in last night and decided on a small cross near the corner of his eye. It represents his journey in finding purpose with God."
The Betrayal Of It All
Perhaps one of the reasons why a lot of Bielibers have turned totally feral over the tiny tatt is the betrayal of it all. You see, earlier this year Justin did an interview with GQ Magazine where he said he would only have his famous features inked when he was old and crinkly. When asked if he would ever get one, he replied:
"Maybe when I'm really old, not super old, but maybe like fourties or fifties or something. One above my eyebrow or something. Small."
Who would have thought that it would be something as insignificant as a 2mm cross that finally pushed the Beliebers into civil war. Instead of blindly following their great leader like dickmatized disciples, a lot of #TeamBiebz have broken off into rebel faction who are throwing some serious shade (and death threats?!) about the itsy bitsy ink.
Some Beliebers either love body art, or are firmly planted in the "Stand By Your Man" camp.
And some want him to drown in the Bermuda Triangle, apparently.
