In between cryptic social media posts, the "Slow Down" singer found time to pick out a permanent inspirational message.
"Little gift for my friend @selenagomez," tattoo artist Bang Bang McCurdy shared on Instagram along with the above photo on Wednesday.
Bang Bang spoke to E! News about the tat, which Gomez got on the upper right side of her back.
"Its meaning translates to 'love yourself,'" Bang Bang explained about the script, which appears to be an Arabic translation of the phrase "love yourself first."
"Selena already had it written out how she wanted," he continued. "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… She loved it; she flipped out!"
This 21-year-old Spring Breakers actress has about "5-6 tattoos" already.
Ironically, Bang Bang is also responsible for inking her on-again, off-again boyfriend Justin Bieber, whom Gomez has been in anInstagram-off with lately. At the moment, the hot-and-cold couple are not dating.
Gomez and her new tattoo popped up in Italy at the Ischia Global Film & Music Festival, while the Biebs has been partying it up with Chris Brown in L.A.
Somehow we doubt Selena and Justin will be "off" for long.
