Selena Gomez Pays Tribute to Family Member with Roman Numerals Tattoo

By  | 

Rihanna‘s not the only celebrity with new meaningful inkSelena Gomez just showed off her fresh addition. Over the weekend, Selena paid a visit to New York City tattoo artist Bang Bang (who’s etched everyone from Vanessa Hudgens to Sel’s boyfriend, Justin Bieber) in order to stamp Roman numerals LXXVI (76) on the back of her neck. Although the significance of the numbers has yet to be revealed, Bang Bang told The Daily Mail, “The tattoo was a tribute to a family member who she said means a lot to her.”

Bang Bang continued to mention that “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.”

This is Selena’s second tattoo, after inking herself up back in February with a tiny music note on her right wrist. However, it may not be the first time she thought about getting another permanent marking in the interim. This past June, Hollyscoop learned that Sel and Justin were tossing around the idea of getting matching tattoos, and taking secret trips to the parlor together. No such ink has been revealed, though, since the announcement.

Speaking of JB, he recently showed off his latest addition (while shirtless!), a crown, less than a month ago via Twitter. Although he didn’t give an exact reasoning, we came up with a few ideas as to the meaning — like King of Pop, King of Celeb Couples, King of basically everything — but word’s still out on that one…
