Selena Gomez got fresh ink from celebrity tattoo artist Bang Bang McCurdy, who inscribed the Arabic words that translate to “love yourself first” on her back below her right shoulder.
McCurdy posted a photo of Gomez on Instagram Wednesday after he’d completed his artwork.
“Little gift for my friend @Selena Gomez,” he wrote, showing Gomez looking flirty with flowing long locks and her shoulder exposed.
He added, “The tattoo is about 4 inches, and didn’t take too long, probably about 30-45 minutes. The longest part is laying it out. We played with it a bit laying it out, until we found the perfect spot.”
Gomez also acknowledged her loyalty to McCurdy and his handicraft on her own Instagram feed.
“Art by @bangbangnyc – from my first to my last. It’s always this fool.”
