Justin Drew Bieber (born March 1, 1994) is a Canadian pop/R&B singer. His performances on YouTube were seen by Scooter Braun, who later became his manager.

Justin got his first tattoo as a celebration of both his 16th birthday and family tradition. His dad and one of his uncles have the same tattoo. It's the outline of the seagull from the book Jonathan Livingston Seagull. His second tattoo (his dad also has this tattoo) are the characters that spell out "Yeshua," which is Hebrew for "Jesus." He now has a tattoo of Jesus as well as praying hands and three roseson the back of his left leg, a small Japanese Kanji for MUSIC on his right arm, a crown on his upper right chest, the word BELIEVE on his inside left forearm, an owl beside that and an indian chiefs head (the Stratford Cullitons hockey team logo) on his left shoulder blade, a tribute to his grandfather who took him to the games every Friday night. Justin keeps adding ink at an alarming rate!
