Justin Bieber and his dad have had matching tattoos
The 17-year-old singer - who already has two other inkings, a star on his elbow and a seagull to his hip - visited a tattooist in Israel with father Jeremy Bieber in May, where they both had `Yeshua`, the Hebrew word for Jesus, etched onto the left side of their torsos.
Photographs posted on fan website TheJustinBieberShrine.com show the `Baby` hitmaker looking nervous as he sits in the tattooist`s chair before his dad takes his hand while the inking takes place.
The pair then posed together, revealing their inflamed new artwork.
Justin - who is dating Selena Gomez - was raised primarily by his mother Patti Mallette but has previously spoken of his closeness to Jeremy.
He said: "I have a great relationship with my dad. When I was younger, he taught me how to play some songs on the guitar, like `Knockin` on Heaven`s Door` by Bob Dylan.
"He taught me how to drive, too. He`s cool."
While Justin and his father have not explained the significance of their matching artwork, the teenage singing sensation`s manager Scooter Braun has previously revealed the star prays in both English and Hebrew before each performances.
Scooter - who is Jewish - said: "Justin heard me pray, he gets why I do it and now he does the same."
