Justin Bieber's tattoo artist has explained the meaning behind his latest inking. The 22-year-old singer was pictured visiting a New York tattoo parlour on Friday and getting a small cross etched just under the corner of his eye. 'It represents his journey in finding purpose with God.' Tattoo artist Jonathan 'Jonboy' Valena told Us Weekly. The Sorry hitmaker - who is currently in the middle of his Purpose World Tour - reportedly now has 52 tattoos.
Bieber's close pal, Joe Termini got a matching cross during the visit to West 4th Tattoo Parlour. Bieber arrived with his entourage and security guards and shut down the place for their own personal use, making sure no one else entered the shop.
The pair stayed in the venue for almost two hours as Justin got his work done and he made sure to snap a cheeky selfie with JonBoy before he left.
