Gomez got her new tattoo from New York tattoo artist Bang Bang McCurdy who told "E! News" he tattooed Gomez about a month ago with an Arabic phrase which translates to "Love Yourself First" on her back. Gomez has been very much into self-improvement ever since her relationship with Justin Bieber ran into some problems. Sources have said Gomez also has some other tattoos. Apparently the biblical verse "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me" is tattooed on her right hip.

In between a series of cryptic posts online Gomez found time for her latest tattoo reports "E! Online." McCurdy says Gomez has wanted this new body art for awhile. Gomez first wrote out what she wanted. The tattoo is about 4 inches and took McCurdy about about 30-45 minutes. It took a little while to find a good spot for the tattoo which turned out to be the upper right side of Gomez's back.

McCurdy says Gomez is really pleased with her brand new body art. He said she absolutely loves it and flipped out with joy. It's rumored Gomez is already considering another tattoo. McCurdy has also tattooed Cara Delevingne, Rita Ora, Rihanna, and Justin Bieber. It looks like Gomez has found the most talented body artist around to help her live out her present desire to express herself this way.
