Justin Bieber's father didn't just say "OK" to his 17-year-old son getting a tattoo.

Jeremy Bieber went along and got inked with him.

Not long before the Biebs joined Selena Gomez in Hawaii n May, he and Jeremy went under the needle in Israel and emerged with "Yeshua," the Hebrew word for "Jesus," tattooed vertically on their left torsos.

Dad, who's got ink all over the place, held his son's hand and everything, aw.

Bieber's manager, Scoot Braun, has said that Justin, whose Christian faith remains a prominent part of his persona, says prayers in English and Hebrew before going onstage.

"Justin heard me pray, he gets why I do it and now he does the same," said Braun, who is Jewish.

This tat joined an outline of a seagull on Justin's left hip, a souvenir from turning 16, but came before the outline of a large star appeared on his left elbow in late May.

While Justin was raised primarily by his mom, Pattie Mallette, he and Jeremy remained close over the years.

"I have a great relationship with my dad," he told Seventeen last year."When I was younger, he taught me how to play some songs on the guitar, like 'Knockin' on Heaven's Door' by Bob Dylan."

"He taught me how to drive, too," Justin said of his father. "He's cool."
