Selena Gomez recently added a small tattoo to her ink collection: a small cross on her collarbone. Here, you can see the tattoo.
The very personal and spiritual tiny tattoo is the work of tattoo artist Keith Scott McCurdy, who is part of the famous Bang Bang Tattoo tattoo studio in New York.
In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, the tattoo artist revealed that he felt very nervous while tattooing Selena’s skin, especially since the small cross is located in a very visible part of the body:
“She liked it there. No pressure, right?” joked with the tabloid. “It’s right on his collarbone where everyone will see him. They’re a couple of straight lines and it looks easy. But I was sweating cold.”
McCurdy added that he knew how important this tattoo was to Selena, noting that any religious ink usually has a profound meaning:
“Tattoos are a really deeply emotional thing,” she told ET. “When someone wants a tattoo that is somehow religious, I don’t even need to ask. I know this tattoo gives him power and I like to be a part of it.”
Selena’s recent visit to New York’s famous tattoo and the piercing shop was not her first foray into the world of tattoos, quite the contrary. The singer-songwriter and actress have many other tattoos, including one on her neck inspired by her album “Rare”, an ink coordinated with best friend Julia Michaels, and a special tattoo she shares with the cast of 13 Reasons Why.
The most personal tattoos are certainly the date inked on her arm commemorating her kidney transplant surgery of 2017 and the two hands in prayer holding a rosary that was tattooed on her thigh in November 2019.
