Justin Bieber may have left Israel with more than some sand in his suitcase.

The teenage pop star, who delighted fans with a concert in Tel Aviv last month, was recently spotted sporting a new tattoo.

The tattoo, on his left ribcage, is of the Hebrew word Yeshua, translated into English as Jesus.

Justin is a devout Christian, but his manager Scooter Braun is Jewish. Mr Braun revealed last year that Justin reads the Shema before he goes on stage for luck.

"First he says a Christian prayer, then he says the Shema," he said. "Justin heard me pray, he gets why I do it and now he does the same."
