Selena Gomez throws big tattoo on upper back
“Back to you,” Indeed.
Famous tattoo artist Keith “Bang Bang” McCurdy on Wednesday posted a photo of Selena Gomez with what appeared to be a significant new tattoo on her back.
The Rare Beauty founder, 29, faced a graffiti-filled wall for the black-and-white snap, sporting an upside-down coat that exposed the apparent ink.
Bang Bang – who has given Gomez several tattoos in the past – simply captioned the snap, “@selenagomez ✍️.”
While it’s not clear what the drawing represents, it appears to start at the base of her neck and run down between her shoulder blades.
Fans went crazy for the cryptic message, guessing that the design could be a ‘dream catcher’ or a ‘rose’. One wrote, “Can’t wait to get a better view of it,” while another asked, “Is this for her next project or album?” Is it permanent? “
It wouldn’t be the first time Gomez has hinted at a new project with ink. In 2020, she brought in Bang Bang to tattoo the word ‘Rare’ on her neck after releasing a single of the same name.
Her extensive body art collection also includes a cross on her collarbone, several friendship tattoos, and one of her favorite Bible verses.
In addition to her many delicate designs, she has at least one larger: a tattoo on her thigh of praying hands and a rosary that she debuted at the 2019 American Music Awards.
While Gomez herself is yet to post or comment, her new ink – believed to be her 16th and largest known tattoo – comes months after making her debut with a propeller piercing after a night out with friends.
