Selena Gomez looks thrilled to have some brand-new ink. On April 15, celebrity tattoo artist Keith Scott “Bang Bang” McCurdy posted a video to Instagram of the “Lose You to Love Me” singer’s latest tattoo.
In the short black-and-white clip captioned “We [heart] @selenagomez,” a beaming Gomez, 28, shows off a thin cross on her collarbone before pulling up her face mask and tilting her head back in what appears to be a laugh.
Gomez, who once called herself “addicted” to tattoos and reportedly has as many as 15, has gone to New York City-based Bang Bang in the past for many of her designs, including the roman numerals LXXVI, the word “Rare” (a reference to her latest album) and Arabic script for the phrase “love yourself first.”
Gomez began her tattoo collection over a decade ago with a musical note on her wrist since “music is a big influence” in her life, she has explained.
“I was named after a singer, I’m a singer and a lot of other personal reasons. So, that’s what I got,” she said.
Over the years, other A-list celebrities have sought out Bang Bang for his artistry — and in some very curious locales.
According to a bio on Bang Bang’s website, he’s “tattooed Rihanna in the tropics, Lebron James in his basement, Cara Delevingne on a roof, Katy Perry in Stockholm’s ABBA Museum, and Justin Bieber on a plane at 30,000 feet.”
