  • Justin Bieber got a giant new tattoo on his neck.
  • It’s a laurel wreath that has a special meaning.

Ah, I think I see what Justin Bieber did here. He just announced that his new album, Changes, comes out on Valentine’s Day and he just went through a drastic change (!) and got a gigantic collarbone tattoo. Yikes, that had to be painful.

Just a few hours ago, Justin took to Instagram to post a close-up selfie and give a little preview of his newest tattoo, which looks to be a laurel wreath. And if you hop over to his Instagram Story, he showed off the full version and a Drew bathmat because why not?

Justin didn’t reveal what the tattoo means to him or when or where he got it, but the Google gods provided some insight as to what it might symbolise. (Also, there’s definitely a neck tattoo trend going on because Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato each just got one.)

According to an article from Old Dominion University describing the symbolism of laurel wreaths, they’re one of the few plants mentioned in the New Testament, so this is likely a tattoo that will remind Justin of his faith. The article went on to say that the laurel wreath, or ‘victor’s crown,’ is ‘for those who persevere.’

TBH, it makes sense that Justin would get this tat! He has been through a lot and is still going after what he wants! In fact, when he recently announced his new music and tour, he shared, ‘As humans, we are imperfect. My past, my mistakes, all the things that I’ve been through. I believe that I’m right where I’m supposed to be, and God has me right where he wants me.’

Anyway, that’s the latest on the Biebs!
