Selena Gomez gets Roman numeral neck tattoo

The Juice

Selena Gomez is only 20 years old, but the number 76 will always hold a special place in her heart -- and now on her neck, too.

The "Spring Breakers" star got her second tattoo recently at the New York City parlour Bang Bang. The Roman numerals for 76, LXXVI, is now permanently etched into the back of Gomez's neck, apparently in honour of a member of her family.

Earlier this February, Gomez got her first tattoo, a tiny music note on her right wrist. At the time, she said, "I was really scared but I got a little one. I was a pansy, actually! So I'm good for now for a while." But apparently, it didn't take long for the former Disney pre-teen queen to choose another image to adorn her body forever.

That isn't too surprising, though, since she's surrounded by friends who have also gotten inked by the folks at Bang Bang recently. That's where her boyfriend Justin Bieber got the word "Believe" written on his left arm, "Spring Breakers" co-star Vanessa Hudgens got a butterfly on her neck, and fellow Disney star Ashley Tisdale got a foot tattoo. Bang Bang has also inked artwork for Rihanna, Chris Brown, Katy Perry, Russel Brand, Eve, and Swizz Beatz. Photos of all of them can be found on the studio's Facebook page.

Though it only took 20 minutes to complete the new tat, the U.K. Daily Mail reports, Gomez is still getting used to the whole process.

"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 Bang Bang artist said.
