Ink-redible: Gomez gets 'Love Yourself' tatt

SELENA Gomez has got a new tattoo.

The 21-year-old singer, who recently split from Justin Bieber again shortly after vowing to take her "power back," has got an Arabic inking on the upper right side of her back, which translates into 'Love Yourself.'

Celebrity tattoo artist Bang Bang McCurdy, who created the brunette beauty's latest piece of body art, told E! News that Selena "had been wanting this one for a while" and finally got it done "about a month ago," during a visit to his studio in New York City "with a couple of friends."

He said: "Its meaning translates to 'Love Yourself.' Selena already had it written out how she wanted. 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."

He added: "She loved it; she flipped out. When we did that one, she was talking about another one. But we haven't talked plans just yet. There are always plans to do another one."

The 'Spring Breakers' star "has about five or six tattoos now," according to Bang Bang, who has also tattooed Justin in the past.
