Selena Gomez has a new tattoo. The 27-year-old pop star just got a matching tattoo with her longtime best friend and colleague Julia Michaels. The singers inked arrows that point to one another when they hold hands.
“It’s tatted… my arrow points to you forever,” Gomez wrote on her Instagram story, where she put a picture of the two looking down at their tattoos.
Singer and actress Selena Gomez is the most followed celebrity on Instagram, who always has millions of likes on posts. She has numerous tattoos, but not all of them were shown through her Instagram profile.
Let’s check all 10 of them.
1. Music Note
Gomez did her first tattoo in 2012 on her right wrist. It is a tiny musical note, a sign of love for what she does. “I was named after a singer and music obviously is a big influence for me, and there’s music stuff with my mom that means a lot to me, too,” Selena told at the time.
The second one is inked in the most hidden place. Specifically, she tattooed on her neck, the Roman numeral LXXVI, which means 76. This was made by Keith “Bang Bang” McCurdy, a famous celebrity tattoo artist. This tattoo was a tribute to her mom Amanda who was born in 1976.
The work on the tattoo, she reveals, lasted only 20 minutes, and Selena came a little scared because she was afraid she would not be able to endure the pain. That’s why she held her best friend’s hand all the time.
3. God who strengthens me
In 2013, Selena Gomez showed off her new tattoo, a biblical verse “God who strengthens me” written on her right hip. Selena told Ryan Seacrest on his show ‘On Air with Ryan Seacrest’ the tattoo is from The Philippians 4:13 verse of the Bible, Selena’s favorite passage: “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”
4. Love yourself first
Written in Arabic, “Love yourself first” tattoo, Gomez made in 2014. Tattoo from artist Bang Bang McCurdy is located on the right side of her back. Bang Bang explained to E! News that Selena’s tattoo is about 4 inches, and didn’t take too long to make about 30-45 minutes.
5. Om symbol
Om Symbol that is sacred in Hinduism, which is located on Selena’s hip, was first seen in 2015.
6. G tattoo
Letter G, an initial that stands for her little half-sister Gracie, is located behind her left ear. Little Gracie was born in 2013, two years after Selena’s mother had a miscarriage with another baby girl.
The Sunshine tattoo, which was first seen in April 2016, is just the word sunshine written on her right foot. This tattoo is dedicated to her grandmother, and the song she used to sing to her ‘you are my sunshine, my only sunshine.’
A week after ’13 Reasons Why’ series was released, Selena Gomez went to the tattoo studio with the cast. Selena, Alisha Boe, and Tommy Dorfman tattooed the semicolon, followed by a strong message about mental health and how important it is.
The semicolon symbolizes hope for those struggling with depression, addiction, self-harm, and suicidal thoughts.
The semicolon project was launched in 2013 by activist Amy Bleuel, who lost her father after killing himself. It is tragic that Bleuel, who has been suffering from depression for 20 years, also committed suicide at the age of 31.
