Selena Gomez Gets a New Tattoo With an Important Meaning [PHOTO]

Selena Gomez visited the Big Apple recently, and on her trip took time to meet with famed tattoo artist Bang Bang, who inked the star’s most prominent tattoo yet: an important message in Arabic, just below her shoulder.

“Selena already had it written out how she wanted,” Bang Bang told E! News, revealing that the ‘Come and Get It’ singer came in with “a couple of friends.”

“The tattoo is about 4 inches, and didn’t take too long, probably about 30-45 minutes,” he continued about the session. “The longest part is laying it out. We played with it a bit laying it out, until we found the perfect spot.” You can check out Gomez’s tat in the picture above.

But the ink isn’t just in the perfect spot. It also carries a significant message.

“Its meaning translates to ‘Love Yourself,’” Bang Bang told about the Arabic phrase, which is a translation of the expression “Love Yourself First.”

“She loved it; she flipped out!” the celebrity tattoo artist said of Gomez’s reaction to the final work, adding that she has “about 5 or 6 tattoos now,” including a small heart on the inside of her wrist and a neck tattoo that was also done by Bang Bang.

While Bang Bang posted the above shot of Gomez on his Instagram, Gomez later shared the same image on her own, captioning the pic: “Art by @bangbangnyc – from my first to my last. It’s always this fool.”

And speaking of her latest tattoo, there is most likely some more skin in the singer/actress’ future.

“When we did that one, she was talking about another one,” he revealed. “But we haven’t talked plans just yet. There are always plans to do another one.”
