Earlier this week we got a good look (and a hearty chuckle) at Justin Bieber‘s new Sharpie marker arm “tattoo” but today we learn that the rascally little popstar went and got a real arm tattoo to replace his fake one. The Biebs got the word BELiEVE tattooed on his left arm, undoubtedly in honor of the release this week of his new album titled Believe.

Now, I try not to make a practice of criticizing any person’s decision to get tattoos or (generally) to criticize their tattoo design choices … but … I can’t say I’m a fan of this new tattoo. While I can appreciate that JB wants to commemorate the release of his new album, I cannot, in good conscious, endorse his font choice. The word Believe is a strong word, the font he chose to represent the word on his body — forever — just looks silly, childish.
While I try not to criticize other people’s tattoo decisions, I must admit that Bieber‘s youthful and immature decisions may be a source of regret later in life. He may love this tattoo for all time. My guess is that he will not. Still, he is old enough to make his own decisions … so, I hope he is happy with his choices. What do you think of JB‘s tattoo? Are you a fan? Can you believe that he would permanently ink this on his body?
