  • Selena Gomez has 16 known tattoos so far.
  • Most of her body art is tiny, but she does have two bigger designs, including a larger rose neck tattoo.
  • From her semicolon ink to her “Rare” tattoo, each one has a special meaning.

Selena Gomez has been slowly growing her tattoo collection for years. The “Rare” singer has gotten three new pieces of ink in the last four months alone for a grand total of 16 known tattoos to date. From a delicate number “4” on the inside of her arm to represent her best friends to the large praying-hands mural on her upper thigh and the rose neck tattoo on her upper back, each one of Gomez’s tattoos has a special meaning.

Most of her symbolic tattoos are by Keith “Bang Bang” McCurdy from Bang Bang Tattoo in New York City. That includes her three most recent pieces of ink: the “Rare” tattoo behind her ear, the cross along her collarbone, and her latest, a large design on her upper back. Considering Gomez is a master at containing her tiny (and that one not-so-tiny) ink, it’s also possible she has more ink skillfully hidden and will be adding onto the collection again soon.
