Tiling a shower ceiling

Hello,

I am looking for advice on the best way to adhere 6" x 6" x 3/8" ceramic tile to the ceiling of my shower. Currently I have tiled the floor, walls, and kneewall with ceramic tile. I have used 1/2" hardi cement board as the backer for walls and ceiling. Does anyone have any ideas other than using mastic or even buttering the tiles with thinset then putting a big dap of hot glue in the middle to hold the tile in place?

For 6x6 tiles you can use thinset as usual. They'll stick just fine.

My Master Shower Pics

Just some of the remodel Pictures... i had to take out all of the subfloor, gut it too the bones (floor joists) i even had to replace all the floor joists, bottom half of 80 percent of the studs, and took out two closets to get this.
