Justin Bieber's New Jesus Tattoo & 5 Possible Reasons Behind It

Getting a new tattoo is a big decision, right? You don't want to get permanently inked with something really stupid that you'll regret for the rest of your life, like a picture of the Grim Reaper holding your ex-boyfriend's head. Pffft. Who would do such a thing?

Anyway, that must be why Justin Bieber chose Jesus for his latest tat. I mean, can't go wrong with the Son of God, right? Plus, the Biebs already has the word "Jesus" tattooed on his chest. Why not get the face of Jesus on his ... um, calf?

Well, I can think of a few reasons why not, actually, but it's more fun to think about the possible reasons why. You know, besides the obvious (Biebs hearts Jesus).


1. Justin Bieber is giving up show biz to become a preacher. Tell me that's not a logical progression for the guy! He's wholesome (at least we're pretty sure he is) and god-fearin' and all that stuff, is great in front of crowds, and would do an excellent job of leading a gospel chorus. Hmm, I guess that's not really leaving show biz ...

2. Justin Bieber lost a bet to Selena Gomez. I can totally hear the conversation now:

"Justin, I'm telling you, if you do this creepy Christmas video with Mariah Carey, people are going to hate it."

"No they won't, Selena, it's gonna be awesome! Trust me, babe."

"You're so stubborn! Fine, let's make a bet ... if people hate it you have to ... get a big Jesus face tattooed on your leg!"


3. Justin Bieber went out for boys' night with a bunch of priests. Everything would have been fine if Bieber didn't accept Father O'Riley's whiskey challenge. Next thing he remembers is waking up with that tattoo on his leg ... and a headache the size of the Sistine Chapel.

4. Justin Bieber is sick of Tim Tebow getting all the Jesus points. Hey, I don't blame the guy. Bieber's been working the god angle for a long time! All of a sudden this football player comes along acting like he's the Messiah's long-lost BFF ... take that, Tebow! Praise the lord -- on my leg!

5. Justin Bieber made a promise to The Man Upstairs. Not to bring up a sensitive topic (paternity suit scandal), but perhaps at some point during a recent crisis, Bieber dropped to his knees and prayed: Oh dear Jesus, If you will make this all go away I'll do anything. Anything! I'll get another tattoo for you, a better one -- I'll get your face tattooed on my leg! Just please make that girl leave me alone. Amen.

Why do you think Justin Bieber got a Jesus tattoo on his leg?
