Singer Selena Gomez is sporting a new tattoo after having the phrase "love yourself first" in Arabic inked on her back.

The Come and Get It hitmaker showed off her latest piece of body art on Wednesday (16Jul14) in a photograph posted online.

Tattoo artist Bang Bang MCCurdy tells E! News he inked Gomez last month (Jun14), and that she had been "wanting this one for a while".

MCCurdy also serves as the go-to tattoo artist for Gomez's ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber, whom he famously inked while on a plane earlier this year (Mar14).
