Los Angeles: Selena Gomez has got a new tattoo in Arabic, which means `love yourself first`. The 21-year-old singer-actress is sporting the new inking on the upper right side of her back, courtesy to celebrity tattoo artist Bang Bang McCurdy, reportedly.

"Selena had been wanting this one for a while and finally got it done about a month ago during a visit to my studio in New York City with a couple of friends," McCurdy said.

"Its meaning translates to `Love Yourself.` Selena already had it written out how she wanted. The tattoo is about four 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," McCurdy added.

This is not the `Spring Breakers` star`s first tattoo. According to Bang Bang, Gomez "has about 5-6 tattoos now" adding that he has tattooed the hitmaker about three times.
