Selena Gomez Gets New Tattoo (PHOTO)

fresh ink!

Selena Gomez is following the footsteps of her heavily-inked beau Justin Bieber.

The Disney darling recently added to her body art during a visit tattoo artist to the stars, Bang Bang, in his Lower East Side storefront in NYC. Gomez got the Roman numeral LXXVI — which stands for 76 — inked on the nape of her neck.

What's the meaning behind the inscription?

"The tattoo was a tribute to a family member who she said means a lot to her," the tattoo artist told The Daily Mail. "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."

After sharing a snap of Gomez admiring her new tat in a mirror on his Facebook, Bang Bang tweeted, "I hope u love it girl! @selenagomez."

The A-list tattoo artist has inked the likes of Swizz Beatz, Chris Brown, Rihanna, Katy Perry and Gomez's Spring Breaker costar, Vanessa Hudgens. Bang Bang has even worked with Gomez's boyfriend, having drawn the word "Believe" on Bieber's inner elbow.

And this isn't the first tat for Gomez, 20. The singer-actress — whose animated film, Hotel Transylvania, debuted this weekend at No. 1 with $43 million — has small musical note on her wrist, which was inked by Louie Gomez (no relation) at Hollywood's Under the Gun tattoo parlor in February.

What do you think of Gomez's neck art? Weigh in below.

    "heavily tattooed boyfriend Justin Bieber" The kid has what, 4? I understand we live in a time where everyone under the age of 20 in Hollywood gets inked whenever they feel like it, and the whole meaning of getting something purposeful has been lost, look around and realize there are people with WAY more art on them (and I mean actual art). Then re-evaluate your choice of words when trying to pass the world's greatest douche as heavily inked.
