Justin Bieber Tattoos: Star Tweets Photo Of Crown On His Chest (PHOTOS)

Justin Bieber is quickly catching up to boy band rival Harry Styles when it comes to body art: Yesterday, the "Believe" singer tweeted a black-and-white Instagram photo of the crown tattoo on his chest, one piece in his collection of eight tattoos and counting. Scroll down to view the full image below.

Beliebers clearly approve: The Biebs' tweet was RT'd over 40,000 times, and the photo has received nearly 300,000 likes on Instagram. With another Jelena breakup reported this week -- and this time seemingly for good -- could JB's tweet mean that the star is ready for a new leading lady?

The new ink joins JB's growing collection, which includes an owl, a large visage of Jesus on his calf, a bird on his hip, and the Hebrew word for Jesus, among others.

Bieber has been acquiring a number of tattoos in the past year, but he still has a ways to go before matching Harry Styles' body art count. The One Direction singer reportedly has at least 24 tattoos in total, and was spotted yesterday at a tattoo parlor in LA with Taylor Swift, getting a large tattoo of a ship on his bicep.
