Video: Justin Bieber Explains Meaning Behind His Tattoos

Justin Bieber is giving us the dirt on all of his tattoos. You know, the ones we see all the time since he doesn't own any shirts.
But hey, to be frank- I am not complaining. One bit. Yes, it does make me feel a little weird that it seems like yesterday that he was just a little boy with swoopy hair singing about middle school heartbreak, and now I want to bang him- but his hotness is kind of undeniable. Let's just be honest about that. Homeboy has got it going on.

That being said, Bieber has definitely had his dark times and not-so-flattering moments in the spotlight over the years. He transformed from an adorable, super talented little kid to a still talented, but notoriously snotty teenager- and it seemed like every other day he was getting in trouble for something new. He was very openly picked on and disliked by other celebrities and his reputation plummeted.
His very public decline must have hit him hard- because after laying somewhat low for a while- he is back with a vengeance. A well mannered, super likable vengeance. With an amazing new, mature album. His new, refined, adult persona and recent artistic rebirth has spawned a whole new wave of Beliebers. With the release of his new album and well- that face and those abs- his name has been in the forefront now more than ever- this time, for positive reasons. 
It's only natural that with this grown-up heartthrob status he would land a cover on the magazine every man dreams of gracing- GQ.

In Bieber's GQ feature, he's looking more dapper than ever and spilling tons of secrets. He talks new album, ex-girlfriends, and- what we care most about- his tattoos. At the ripe old age of 21, it seems like he got pretty covered pretty quick- which would usually warrant a big giant eye roll from me.. However, he reveals in this video (below) from his GQ shoot that he actually got his first tattoo when he was just 17. He's been consistently getting tattooed since. He shares a tattoo with his dad, and even has a portrait of his ex-girlfriend..  Where was JB when I wrote the article about NOT getting tattoos for your S. O.?! Ugh. Oh well.

Anyway, browse the photos from JB's shoot, and watch the video below to hear him talk about his tattoos. And I mean, even if you don't give a fuck about his tattoos- he's still shirtless. And it's nice to look at. Put that shit on mute, sit back, and enjoy. You're welcome.
