Selena Gomez's New Tattoo Has a Very Meaningful Message


Selena Gomez, 21, is sporting some new ink.

Celebrity tattoo artist Bang Bang McCurdy posted a pic of Gomez showing off her new tattoo on the upper right side of her back on his Instagram Wednesday, which according to E! News is an Arabic translation of the phrase "Love Yourself First."

"She had been wanting this for a while," the tattoo parlor tells E! "Its meaning translates to 'Love Yourself.'"

This also isn't Selena's first body art. Bang Bang – who's inked Rihanna and Gomez's ex Justin Bieber -- says the Disney star surprisingly "has about 5-6 tattoos now."
