Justin Bieber is no stranger to tattoos, but on Saturday, May 7, he debuted some new ink in a pretty bold place ... his face!

The "Sorry" singer showed off his new religious marking, a tiny cross by his eye, on Instagram, while talking about an upcoming show on his Purpose tour.

"Resting up for the show in Philly," he wrote. "It's gonna be a good one mark my words."

JB's tattoo artist Jonathan "JonBoy" Valena, of West 4 Tattoo in New York, spoke to E! News about the inking and the meaning behind it.

"Yes, I did tattoo a small cross near the corner of Justin's eye," he confirmed. "It was a representation of his faith in Jesus and his journey with finding purpose in God."

Just a few days earlier, Justin posted a spiritual message on Instagram: "I am so lucky to share these moments with you, I am so glad God is able to move even when people are blind to it.. I am the one on that stage but I am nothing without a light shining through. I'm such an average, ordinary person that doesn't deserve the praise. I believe it belongs to my God! Thank you God for showing up when we need you the most!"

It's nice to see this softer side to the pop star, right?
