But now Justin Bieber has proclaimed his faith in indelible ink after having an image of Jesus tattooed on to his left calf. The singer was spotted with the new inking on the beach in Los Angeles yesterday.
The 17-year-old singer - who is dating Selena Gomez - was joined by his father Jeremy - a fellow tattoo enthusiast. Justin and his dad went shirtless as they lapped up the sunshine, played sports and exercised.

The Mistletoe singer had the company of a friend too and the trio set about working up a sweat with some press ups in the sand.
It wasn't long before Justin attracted a gaggle of girls, who came flocking with the pop star obligingly posing for photographs with them.
Bieber's latest inking is based on the image of Jesus called Ecce Homo dating back to 1610 by artist Rubens.
The design was first spotted back in December, although it could only be partially seen.
It's not his first tattoo either. Back in May the Canadian star and his father got matching Jesus tattoos written Hebrew, inked on the side of their rib cages.
He also has a bird tattoo on his lower torso.
And judging his father's many tats, it wouldn't be surprising if Justin is already planning to expand his body art again some time soon.
