Selena Gomez got a MYSTERIOUS back tattoo

Selena Gomez's new and mysterious tattoo surprised everyone

ID news: 1184

Selena Gomez was born on July 22, 1992. Selena Gomez is an American actress and singer. Selena Gomez was born in the Texas Grand Prix. Selena Gomez's mother, Amanda Down Mandy Tiffany (who also has an acting background) gave birth her at the age of 16.

While Selena Gomez might be one of the most-followed people on Instagram, at this point we all know (and love) that she’s a step back from sharing too much online for the sake of her mental health. In fact, she’s personally been off social media for a few years. This means that updates about the star often come from other accounts—including the first picture of her latest back tattoo that was posted by Bang Bang Tattoo. The Brooklyn, New York tattoo studio is a celebrity favorite spot, with the owner Keith “Bang Bang” McCurdy having inked the likes of Rihanna, Justin Bieber and Cara Delevingne.

Adding to the mystery surrounding Selena's new tat, Bang Bang captioned the post,"@selenagomez ." The picture of Sel's new ink was shot at an angle that made it difficult for viewers to see exactly what it was. Her fans quickly flooded Bang Bang's IG post with theories on what the tattoo could be.

In true understated Selena fashion, the post is vague and mysterious—in black and white featuring her standing (jacket on backward) facing the corner. Naturally, as it’s hard to make out what the tattoo is from the far vantage point, fans have been requesting a closer look. “Darklena is coming,” commented one. “We need a close-up!! I need to see the artwork in detail,” wrote another. Honestly, same.

Gomez has not posted about the tattoo on her own Instagram but she has previously shared previous tattoo details (including a small matching tattoo of the number four that she got with her three closest friends), so there’s still hope of getting a better view in the upcoming weeks. Some fans are also suggesting it might be tied to a new album (wishful thinking). All we know so far is that it’s Selena’s biggest ink job to date and positioned centered in between her shoulder blades.

Selena Gomez has a new tattoo. The only problem is no one knows exactly what it is. Sel's go-to tattoo artist Bang Bang revealed the tattoo on her upper back in a black and white pic he posted to Instagram on Wednesday, December 15.

While some fans have guessed the new tattoo is a dream catcher or a bleeding heart, we can only take a stab in the dark by saying it’s meaningful. In the past, Selena’s tattoos have always been very tied to her own personal experiences and relationships—including a matching tat with her good friend Francia Raisa (who served as her kidney transplant donor), a thigh tattoo that depicts two hands pressed together in prayer, and a rosary (inked by Bang Bang), and the word “rare” on her neck (also by Bang Bang, with obvious meaning).

"We need a close up!! I need to see the artwork in detail," one fan wrote. Another added, "Looks like a beautiful dream catcher from this distance." Someone else had another theory. "I think it looks like the sacred heart," the fan wrote. "I guess it's a bloody rose," another fan chimed in.

While questions about what the tattoo could be sent social media into a frenzy, there's another theory that emerged because of Sel's new ink and the aesthetic of the photo Bang Bang used to announce it. "Darklena is coming," one fan wrote.

With Sel working on new music and debuting a new brunette bob, this theory could be on to something.

We definitely support Selena’s effort to be less online but kindly request a better look at her new ink. Until the big reveal, we’ll leave the guesses to her hundreds of awaiting fans in the comments.


Selena Gomez On Her Decision To Delete Instagram: ‘I Just Snapped’


Selena Gomez

Three years ago, Selena Gomez made a decision few celebrities, let alone people, make: She deleted all her social media apps for the sake of her own mental health. While Gomez remains one of the most-followed women on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and TikTok, her assistant posts the photos and captions Gomez sends on her behalf.

Gomez reflected on the moment she “snapped” and made the choice to quit social media to WWD’s Beauty Inc. Not looking at the platforms has in fact made her life better, she explained: “I say that because that’s a huge, significant part of why I feel like I’ve been as healthy as I have been. I’m completely unaware of actually what’s going on in pop culture, and that makes me really happy. And maybe that doesn’t make everybody else happy, but for me, it’s really saved my life.”

She added: “To be honest, I was just, like, ‘This is too much information.’ This is too much of my personal life spread out everywhere, and it just felt uncontrollable. I felt like my thoughts and everything I was consuming revolved around a million different other people in the world saying good things and bad things. And I just thought, ‘Why would I—I don’t get anything from it. Nothing is giving me life.’ And I just snapped, and I was over it. I wanted to delete it altogether, but my team was smart enough to convince me not to. But I’m happy I didn’t, because it is such a wonderful way to stay connected, and when I do go on, it makes me happy to know that I’m just being completely honest and being true to who I am.”
