Selena Gomez has a new tattoo! The Disney actress added a tattoo – the Roman numeral LXXVI (the number 76) – on the nape of her neck. Selena had the work done by Bang Bang, a tattoo artist to the stars, in his Lower East Side studio in NYC.
What’s the meaning behind the inscription?
“The tattoo was a tribute to a family member who she said means a lot to her,” the tattoo artist told The Daily Mail. “Selena was nervous it might have been painful, so she held her best friend’s hand the whole time. But she did a great job.”
After sharing a snap of Gomez admiring her new tat in a mirror on his Facebook, Bang Bang tweeted, “I hope u love it girl! @selenagomez.”
The A-list tattoo artist has inked the likes of Swizz Beatz, Chris Brown, Rihanna, Katy Perry and Gomez’sSpring Breaker costar, Vanessa Hudgens. Bang Bang has even worked with Gomez’s boyfriend, having drawn the word “Believe” on Bieber’s inner elbow.
And this isn’t the first tat for Gomez, 20. The singer-actress — whose animated film, Hotel Transylvania, debuted this weekend at No. 1 with $43 million — has small musical note on her wrist, which was inked by Louie Gomez (no relation) at Hollywood’s Under the Gun tattoo parlor in February.
What do you think of her new ink?
