Another star of "boy band" fame gone solo, Justin Timberlake has continued to follow the trend of celebrity ink -- and continues to make tattoos popular.
Justin Timberlake has 6 tattoos, here are the pictures:
Coming from a Christian background, Justin Timberlake has some tattoos of a religious or spiritual nature.
The most prominent and proudly displayed one is of a large cross tattoo on his upper left shoulder. The tattoo design is of a realistic nature, with patterns subtly delineating light and shadow in ink that draw the eye in to its bevels.
Like thousands of others in the Bible belt (he is from Memphis), Justin Timberlake uses his cross tattoo to openly symbolize his faith in Jesus Christ.
The most unusual and outlandish tattoo on Justin Timberlake's body - is a very large image of a cherubic angel on his back, stretching from the nape of his neck, between his shoulders. It is in fact the largest piece applied on his body, larger even than some of the temporary tattoos he wore for the role in the 2004 film Alpha Dog.
Justin Timberlake's angel tattoo is depicted on a celestial (solar) background, with broad, intricately-inked feathery wings. It carries a banner bearing his mother's initials, and is surrounded by elegant cursive script that reads "Guardian Angel". The tattoo is dedicated to Timberlake's twin sister who died at birth.
Like many celebrities, Justin Timberlake is no stranger to celebrating successful album releases with ink. He has two tattoos from his *NSync days.
The first is a band of flames underscored by a red rope on his wrist. The flames were *NSync's logo at the time. Justin added in the red rope as an ode to the fame and resulting celebrity lifestyle the album brought.
The second *NSync tattoo depicts a marionette - also wreathed in flame, and wrapped up in the red ropes, as a motif. *NSyncs No Strings Attached album also has a puppet theme.
Finally, last but not least, is the Chinese character for "Music" or "Song".
Justin Timberlake played the role of a drug gang member in the movie called Alpha Dog.
He wears several fake tattoos (Tinsley Transfers), such as the year 1976 on his chest, the Virgin Mary and several Chinese characters.
Funny thing is that one of the Chinese character tattoos translates in "ice skating", not the usual sport for a gang member.
- Justin Timberlake's last tattoo is going to be the name of the woman he marries.
