Justin Timberlake’s Tattoos

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.
