What Do Justin Bieber’s New Tattoos Mean? Let’s Investigate!

A compass and a jester tattoo, Justin? What does it all mean?!

While we may not always know why Justin Bieber does what he does (see: Segways), Beliebers can always rest assured that there’s a method to his madness. Can the same be said about Justin’s two newest tattoos of a compass and a court jester? We think so.

Look, we’re not expert ink-interpreters. (Is anyone? Bueller? Bueller?) But we’ve kept a needlessly detailed dream journal for the past seven years and we spent most of the mid-nineties wearing out our “Adventures Of Mary-Kate & Ashley” videos. That’s worth something, right?

OK then, we’re on the case! Here are five highly probable theories that might reveal the meanings behind JB’s new tats.

I. Compass = direction? Maybe the “Hold Tight” crooner’s telling us that amidst these retirement rumors, he hasn’t lost his way? And, uh, jesters.

II. No, wait! Maybe the Biebs is saying that his retirement’s a JOKE (jesters!) because… Compasses?

III. Or, what if Justin’s a closet Juggalo, and the compass points toward the Insane Clown Posse’s annual Juggalo Gathering?

IV. Um… Or… We… Uh…

V. Maybe Justin just likes tattoos. IDEK, I’m out.
