Selena Gomez has gotten a hefty back tattoo, tattoo artist Bang Bang revealed on his Instagram this week, but close-up details of the design will have to wait. Bang Bang posted a photo of Gomez with her back and the ink showing, but it was so far away that it’s not entirely clear what Gomez chose to tattoo on her, just that it’s large. Commenters begged for a better look, but for now this teaser will have to suffice:
Gomez has not posted anything about the tattoo on her own Instagram. She did share details of a small matching tattoo she got in the past with her three best friends, Raquelle Stevens, Ashley Cook and Courtney Lopez.
“#4 because these women have stayed by my side for 7 years (@ashley_cook 12 years) 4, because you guys have been my 4 for the rest of my life,” Gomez wrote in August 2018. “I love you ladies. You all inspire me to be better, stronger, closer to God and we’ve been through the most INSANE story together. Can’t wait for 50 more!! Ps @raquellestevens had a real panic attack it’s a dot! ️”
Gomez recently spoke to ELLE.com and other reporters about how her beauty standard was distorted from being famous at such a young age. Embracing her own beauty was a process.
“I’ve been in makeup since I was seven years old. I feel like I’m so confused,” she began. ‘You’re still so young and then you’re working. I have professionals doing my makeup and suddenly I can look 25 when I was 16, and it was crazy. Then I was like, ‘oh, I always look too young. I should achieve that look more. I should give that a try.’ It just made me question my beauty for what it was.”
She created Rare Beauty, her makeup brand, for those who had similar doubts about their appearance. “I’ve fallen victim to wanting to change my face and do things because I see such intense trends,” she continued. “I think the most rewarding part of creating this line is that we’re creating a place for people who don’t necessarily want to do their job or change their face. They just want to embrace what they are and what they have.”
