Regardless of where you stand on Justin Bieber, I think we can all agree that a giant chest tattoo is ill-advised in most cases — So, naturally, that meant Bieber had to go and get one for himself.
During a recent concert in Bologna, Italy, Bieber saw fit to tease his fans by lifting up his shirt and showing off his new ink: a giant chest tattoo which reads, “Son Of God.”
Seriously. Justin Bieber has labeled himself as the offspring of God, in giant, Gothic lettering, smattered across his ribs.
I’m not sure how to interpret this one, but here are some possible explanations that I’ve come up with:
- It’s an actual ode to Jesus Christ (which, considering his other religious tattoos, might be fairly on-brand).
- Justin is pretty sure that he’s the actual spawn of an omnipotent God (skeptical, but hey, you might convince me).
- The tattoo actually says “DOGFONOS,” but none of us can tell because we aren’t looking at it in a mirror (the more you think about this explanation, the more it makes total and perfect sense).
This chest tattoo is simply the most recent addition in the ink-inclined pop-star’s collection of permanent body art. In fact, Bieber has roughly 57 tattoos, which include, but are not limited to: a rose, a crown, a seagull, some wings, a full sleeve, and a tiny cross beneath his left eye.
And honestly, if he was willing to tattoo his actual face, then it’s really not surprising that he would get a giant chest tattoo labeling himself a demigod. Perhaps he should join forces with self-proclaimed “god,” Kanye West, and they can form their own highly-privileged religion?
In other sad news, this now means that the wax Bieber statue at Madame Tussaud’s in London is now woefully inaccurate, and will probably have to be melted down and used as candles.
