Yesterday, the 21-year-old pop star and designer took to her Instagram to debut her new tattoo, and it’s really cute! The ink art was done by New York City-based celebrity tattoo artist Bang Bang McCurdy! (sn: McCurdy also does Justin Bieber’s tattoos, and Selena was the one to introduce them…! Aside from Bieber, McCurdy’s also tattooed Cara Delevingne, Rita Ora, and Rihanna.) Selena got her new tat on the upper right region of her back, one that she’s been wanting for a while.
The tat is in Arabic script, translating to “Love Yourself” or “Love Yourself First.” Such a great, inspiring meaning! Bang Bang dished a little bit about his session with Selena. He shared that she arrived with a few friends (handholders, we’re sure lol) and was ready to get right to it. The tattoo is about four inches long and took about 30-45 minutes to complete. Selena loved her tattoo; Bang Bang added that she flipped out when she saw it! This isn’t Selena’s first stroll in the ink park, however, as she already has like five or six! Bang Bang has done three of them already.
And get this! As Selena was in the chair getting this one done, she was talking about another tattoo idea! I guess that getting tats are addictive; you can’t just have one! Actual plans aren’t in the works just yet for Selena’s next tattoo, but we’re looking forward to seeing what it looks like!
