Justin Timberlake has many tattoos – most of them are inspired by his religious belief. His family handed him down the passion for music and the faith in God. Two important aspects of his life, in which we can find the meaning of his tattoos.
Justin Randall Timberlake is a man of many talents: Pop singer, songwriter, extraordinary dancer, record producer, actor and much more.
He is not only good at making money and songs: former partner of Pop Star Britney Spears, he is now engaged with no less than super sexy Star Jessica Biel (not to mention the flirts with Cameron Diaz or Alyssa Milano).
He was born in Memphis, Tennessee in 1981. He had his TV debut within "The Mickey Mouse Club" show, which included other future Top tattooed Stars such as Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera and JC Chasez (future band-mate in the N Sync ).
As already mentioned, Justin Timberlake is a fervent believer. He was born in the so called Bible Belt, a big area of the United States stretching from Texas to Florida north to the State of Missouri. His grandfather was a Baptist minister and his father a choir director at a Baptist church.
That is why music and faith always had such important influence on Justin mind.
So, most of Justin Timberlake tattoos are inspired by his religious belief. Here is a list of his tattoos:
1 – a huge cross tattoo covers his left shoulder, symbolizing his faith in Christ;
2 – a second very large tattoo is placed on Justin Timberlake's back and presents a cherubic angel under the inscription "Guardian". This angel carries a banner with Justin's mother's initials but, as far as I could learn, the tattoo is dedicated to Timberlake's half-sister, Laura Katherine, who died shortly after her birth. She is also mentioned in his acknowledgments in the album NSYNC as "My Angel in Heaven".
3 – Justin's zodiac sign of "Aquarius" is tattooed around his calf.
4/5 – two NSync related tattoo: one is visible on his wrist and the other one is placed on his ankle.
6 – A Chinese character, which is supposed to mean "Music"
In 2004 big sensation was caused by some pictures about Justin Timberlake completely covered by tattoos. However, they were not real tattoos, just temporary ones, painted on Justin's body while starring in the movie "Top Dog".
