Triple Putz?

Seems that hometown hottie Justin Timberlake might be the victim of a plague inking its way across the nation — bad tattoos.

Timberlake sports one of the seemingly ubiquitous Chinese lettering tattoos in the upcoming flick Alpha Dog, in which he plays one Frankie Ballenbacher. The character is based on legendary badass Jesse James Hollywood, a drug dealer who became one of the youngest men ever to be on the FBI's most wanted list.

Needless to say, a tough guy drug dealer needs an equally tough guy tattoo, no? According to the site www.hanzismatter.com, which specializes in translating Chinese letter tattoos, the letters "tattooed" on Timberlake for the role spell out… ICE SKATING.

Now we at the Flyer don’t have a translator on staff, but judging from this Chinese guy's site, he knows a little more about the subject than some Hollywood makeup artist. It could be worse, though JT. One girl who sent in a photo of her tattoo for translation was crushed to find out it meant CRAZY DIARRHEA. Skate on!
