Selena Gomez Has A New Cross Tattoo On Her Collarbone

“I’m very, very spiritual”

Selena Gomez is flaunting some new ink with her cross tattoo.

Selena’s new cross tattoo is created by celebrity tattoo artist Keith Scott “Bang Bang” McCurdy. The artist posted a video of Gomez with her dainty ink on Instagram, writing, “We [heart] @selenagomez.”

In the black and white clip, the 28-year-old singer could be seen smiling and later pulling her mask back up. She is draped in a smock with the camera zoomed in on the little cross.

The cross tattoo is not a first for the singer. Several other inkings on her skin are from the artist including her previous one,  the word “Rare” – a reference to her album’s name which debuted the same month Selena got her tattoo.

In 2014, the New York based tattoo studio inscribed the Arabic words that translate to “love yourself first” on her back below her right shoulder. Band Bang also etched the roman numerals LXXVI on the back of her neck.

Interestingly, he has also done ink for Selena’s ex-boyfriend, Justin Beiber. In 2013, the singer got a rose tattoo on his forearm.

How many Tattoos does Selena have?

Selena Gomez has a total of 15 tattoos, including the new cross, according to Page Six. Many of them represent important moments in her life, including the date of her kidney transplant.

Her first inking was a small music note on her wrist. In 2012, she revealed to Access Hollywood that she got the tattoo because “music is a big influence in my life.”

The new tattoo holds a lot of significance for the “Lose You To Love Me” songstress. Speaking to Vogue in March 2021, Selena shared that she is in a very “spiritual” place in this new chapter of her life.

“I’m very, very spiritual,” she stated. “I believe in God, but I’m not religious. I’ve been a Christian for a while now. I don’t talk about it too much—I want to, but it’s gotten a bad rep. I just want to make it clear that I love being able to have my faith, and believe in what I believe in, and that truly is what gets me through.”
