Young, teenaged pop stars grow up so fast. First they come out onto the scene preaching their virginity and singing about thirteen-year-old love, the next thing you know they're getting tatted up and snorting lines of cocaine in the bathroom stalls of Les Deux. Though I think that Justin Bieber's avoiding this path, it's still kinda precious that he's – gasp! – now with multiple tattoos.
The darling child was seen traipsing around the beach while on vacation in Hawaii with girlfriend Selena Gomez, sporting a second tattoo. The seventeen-year-old has had a bird tattoo on his left hip for a while now, but his new tattoo is more edgy and less nondenominational. It spells "Yeshua," which means Jesus in Hebrew.
The non-Jewish singer just seems to be following in the footsteps of early pop star, sometime hot messes Christina Aguilera and Britney Spears (who have a public intoxication arrest and a public meltdown between them). Both sport Hebrew tattoos. But, alas, maybe The Biebs is just doing his own thang and getting "Jesus" tattooed in English isn't edgy enough for the boy who looks like he's prepubescent with a perpetual halo of innocence surrounding him. Yep, that's it.
