Selena Gomez’s New Tattoo: A Message Related to Justin Bieber?

Selena's Message
Selena Gomez sends out a cryptic message about love.
Selena Gomez took a break from posting cryptic messages on Instagram to have one tattooed on her body… And now, of course, we’re wondering if it has anything to do with her on-again, off-again relationship with Justin Bieber.

The 21-year-old singer looked to celebrity tattoo artist Bang Bang McCurdy--who she and Bieber have both visited several times–for the new ink, which is located on the mid right side of her back, across her ribs.

The script is in Arabic and translates to, “Love Yourself First,” which she may have decided upon after spending so many years trying (and failing) to be with Bieber.

Not to mention, according to Bang Bang, she got her new ink “about a month ago,” right around the time Bieber re-entered then swiftly exited her life.

The artist also added, “She had been wanting this one for a while.”

As for the procedure, Bang Bang told E! News, “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.”

And it seems like SelGo agrees it turned out just right as Bang Bang reveals, “She loved it! She flipped out!”

The new tat marks the “Come and Get It” singer’s fifth or sixth, according to her artist who has tattooed her three times now.

Most recently, tabloids have been going crazy wondering whether or not Selena got a boob job, following rumors that Bieber had allegedly told her he wished she had bigger breasts.  Perhaps the message “love yourself” is also a reflection of not changing for someone else… (?)
