Los Angeles: Singer Selena Gomez got herself a new tattoo on her neck from famous New York artist Bang Bang.

Gomez decided to get the roman numerals for the number 76.

"The tattoo was a tribute to a family member who she said means a lot to her. 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," quoted Bang Bang as saying.

The 20-year-old singer also tweeted: "You will never know how much you all mean to me."

Gomeaz, who is dating teen sensation Justin Bieber, got her first tattoo, a small heart on her right wrist, February this year, after visiting Hollywood`s Under the Gun tattoo shop.
