Selena Gomez isn’t letting anyone stand in her way of happiness.

The 21-year-old starlet got a new tattoo from artist-to-the-stars Bang Bang McCurdy while on her trip in New York City. The new ink, which is located on her upper back, reads “Love Yourself First” in Arabic.

“She loved it; she flipped out!” Bang Bang revealed to E! Online.

The NYC inker shared a photo on Instagram of her latest visit, captioned “Little gift for my friend @selenagomez.”

“Selena already had it written out how she wanted,” he said. “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.”

Selena definitely isn’t a stranger to the tattoo scene. According to Bang Bang, the “Come and Get It” singer “has about 5-6 tattoos now,” and she definitely isn’t stopping. He also revealed that Selena talked about getting another one.

Selena isn’t the only celeb Bang Bang has worked on. The celebrity artist has also inked famous faces such as Cara Delevingne, Rita Ora, Rihanna, and Justin Bieber.
