Chloe Says: Justin Bieber & Miley Cyrus Need To Cool It On The Tattoos!

I totally understand that young stars feel the need to mark big occasions in their lives, but why do it with permanent ink?

I firmly believe that Justin Bieber, 17, and Miley Cyrus, 18, are going to regret getting tatted up. These Hollywood teens have proudly displayed their new ink in recent days. Now that Miley revealed her sixth tattoo on May 17 and Justin showed off his second on May 22 — it’s time for me to tell them that this must stop!

Justin hit the beach in Hawaii with his girlfriend Selena Gomez with a brand new addition to his torso … a giant tattoo in Hebrew letters that reportedly means “Jesus.” I think it’s great that Justin is proud of his faith, but he doesn’t need to deface his body.

Tattoos are HUGE in the music industry … almost every single one of my favorite artists have tattoos somewhere on their bodies. I’m not against tattoos. Believe it or not, I have one! My issue is this: Justin and Selena are just kids. Justin isn’t even 18 and he already has two.

Miley and her mom took a trip to Brazil last week and you could clearly see her mom Tish‘s full back tattoo of angel wings. Miley then decided that it would be a great idea to get her sixth tattoo! A well known Brazilian tattoo artist came to her hotel room and inked her with an anchor, which was supposed to symbolize a “safe place.”

I get that these young stars are money makers for their parents and are growing up quickly in a fast paced industry. However, Justin’s mom Pattie and Miley’s mom Tish need to step in and tell them “NO!” (Although, since Miley is 18, she doesn’t need her mom’s permission.)

Being so young and getting something so permanent should require more thought. Even if the meaning behind all of the tattoos is special, these guys shouldn’t need a tattoo to show off their passions.

Justin and Miley should be more like Taylor Swift and Ke$ha who opt to write in permanent marker instead of getting permanent ink! I’m not trying to preach, I just think these guys need to be a few years older before they start treating their bodies like an easel.
