Selena Gomez has joined the ink club by getting a set of Roman numerals tattooed on the back of her neck, reports E! Online.

The numerals, which Gomez was proud to present in a picture, are in honour of someone. "The tattoo was a tribute to a family member who she said means a lot to her," her tattoo artist said. "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." The Selena Gomez twitter page also got an update, but it was far more cryptic, as she posted: "You will never know how much you all mean to me." It must have meant something to some people, as it received nearly 15,000 retweets. Selena got her first tattoo, a small heart on her right wrist back in February after visiting Hollywood's Under the Gun tattoo shop. Many thought the new wrist ink was a heart signifying her love for Justin Bieber. However, she insisted it was a musical note to mark her career.

The Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber stories still won't subside either, as the Disney star was pictured with some notably adult reading material a few weeks ago. She was seen clutching The 5 Languages of Love: The Secret to Love That Lasts as she left a salon in West Hollywood in mid September, fuelling rumours that her and fellow teen-icon Bieber are facing relationship troubles.
