In 2002, he released his debut solo album, Justified, which sold more than 7 million copies worldwide. Timberlake's second solo release, FutureSex/LoveSounds, was released in 2006 with the U.S. number-one hit singles "SexyBack", "My Love", and "What Goes Around.../...Comes Around". The album also spawned three additional U.S. top twenty hits ("Summer Love", "LoveStoned", and "Until the End of Time").

This talented singer, actor started his career as a Mouseketeer with a couple of other singers you may know - named Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera.

Coming from a Christian background, Justin Timberlake has some tattoos of a religious or spiritual nature.

The most prominent and proudly displayed one is of a large cross tattoo on his upper left shoulder. The tattoo design is of a realistic nature, with patterns subtly delineating light and shadow in ink that draw the eye in to its bevels. Like thousands of others in the Bible belt (he is from Memphis), Justin Timberlake uses his cross tattoo to openly symbolize his faith in Jesus Christ.

Justin Timberlake guardian angel tattoo the most unusual and outlandish tattoo on Justin Timberlake's body - is a very large image of a cherubic angel on his back, stretching from the nape of his neck, between his shoulders. It is in fact the largest piece applied on his body, larger even than some of the temporary tattoos he wore for the role in the 2004 film Alpha Dog. Justin Timberlake's angel tattoo is depicted on a celestial (solar) background, with broad, intricately-inked feathery wings. It carries a banner bearing his mother's initials, and is surrounded by elegant cursive script that reads "Guardian Angel". The tattoo is dedicated to Timberlake's twin sister who died at birth.

Like many celebrities, Justin Timberlake is no stranger to celebrating successful album releases with ink. He has two tattoos from his *NSync days. The first is a band of flames underscored by a red rope on his wrist. The flames were NSync's logo at the time. Justin added in the red rope as an ode to the fame and resulting celebrity lifestyle the album brought. The second *NSync tattoo depicts a marionette - also wreathed in flame, and wrapped up in the red ropes, as a motif. *NSyncs No Strings Attached album also has a puppet theme. The third one is an astral band wraps its way around Justin Timberlake's calf. Very simple, designed like a chain, it has the symbol of Aquarius on its largest link - his zodiac sign. Finally, last but not least, is the Chinese character for "Music" or "Song".
