I believe it was William Shakespeare who once said, “There’s a million reasons why I should give you up, but the heart wants what it wants.” And in the case of Selena Gomez, the heart wanted a sh*t ton of tattoos. And she can’t get enough (sorry). Like, honestly, I can only assume that when she’s in NYC, celebrity tattoo artist Bang Bang is all, “WHEN YOU’RE READY, COME AND GET IT,” and Selena replies, “NA NA NA NA,” but then she changes her mind and is like, “Ugh, sure, fine, be there in five.”
All of which is to say, Selena has some cool tattoos, including giant prayer hands on her thigh, some music notes, an om sign, various numbers, an Arabic phrase, and a Bible verse. Anyway, all of Sel’s tattoos are super meaningful and we went ahead and rounded ’em up!
Her “g” Tattoo
Selena hasn’t revealed the meaning behind this one, but fans seem to think it’s a shout-out to her little sister Gracie. Lovely if true!
Her “Sunshine” Tattoo
Meanwhile, this little dude is believed to be in honor of Selena’s grandmother, who she once called “Sunshine” on Twitter.
The “LXXVI” on Her Neck
Kay, this is “1976” in Roman numerals, which *happens* to be the year Selena’s mom, Mandy Teefey, was born. Bang Bang, who designed the tattoo, told E! News that it “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.”
Her Music Note Wrist Tattoo
Apparently, fans thought this was a heart at first, but Selena set the record straight to Access Hollywood, saying, “It’s a music note. Everybody thought that it was a heart for some reason, but music is a big influence in my life. I was named after a singer, I’m a singer, and a lot of other personal reasons. So that’s what I got.”
“Love Yourself First” in Arabic
Yet another tat curtesy of Bang Bang in NYC, who told E! News, “Selena already had it written out how she wanted. The tattoo is about 4 inches and didn’t take too long, probably about 30 to 45 minutes. The longest part is laying it out. We played with it a bit, laying it out until we found the perfect spot.”
