While her boyfriend Justin Bieber was bizzy puking his guts out ON STAGE during his concert kick-off performance this weekend, Selena Gomez was bizzy getting her latest tattoo. Selena decided to go with a neck tattoo this time around and instead of merely using a Sharpie marker she got the real deal inked onto her flesh. Click below to see the Roman numeral tattoo that Selena is now sporting on her neck.
When she got her first inking in February she claimed she was done thinking about adding more to her body for now. But some months down the line Selena Gomez has taken the plunge and gotten another permanent marking. The Disney starlet recently got a tattoo across the back of neck, which spells 76 in Roman numerals. The 20-year-old went to artist-to-the-stars Bang Bang for the new addition, visiting his New York City studio. He apparently only spent 20 minutes carving the five letters into her skin and she seemed pretty pleased with the artwork. On completion of the task Gomez posed in front of a mirror for her picture to be taken, her epidermis looking slightly sore and red from the experience. She wore her hair up in a scruffy bun on top of her head and accessorised with gold hoop earrings. Clearly grateful for her inking by the expert, she then posed for a snap with the man himself as he hugged and proudly pointed to his star guest. He revealed: ‘The tattoo was a tribute to a family member who she said means a lot to her. ‘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.’ Selena – whose boyfriend Justin Bieber is also a tattoo enthusiast – also had some touch-up work done to an existing etching on her wrist.
I actually like the Roman numerals on her neck. The placement works well so that she can hide it under her hair when she wants to and then can show it off when she wants to. I’m guessing the number 76 holds special significance to Selena, possibly a birth year of someone close to her. We know that her Bieber boyfriend LOVES getting new tattoos so it remains to be seen if Selena will follow his lead. She’s up to two tattoos now … and I suspect she will have at least one more in her future. What do you think of Selena’s new ink? Do you like?
