Selena Gomez Debuts a Meaningful New Neck Tattoo in Honor of Her Album Rare
Selena Gomez is commemorating the release of her new album in a not-so-rare way!
The singer, 27, shared a photo and video on Instagram showing off a brand new addition to her tattoo collection — a tiny neck tattoo featuring the title of her third solo album, Rare, written in cursive script.
“Every song on the record has some sort of emotion or conflict or there’s something going on,” she told PEOPLE exclusively before the album dropped. “I related to everything on this record very, very clearly.”
On Friday, Gomez also dropped the music video for her album title track. In the lush, nature-themed clip, she debuted another meaningful tattoo while dancing through a whimsical garden filled with butterflies and colorful plants.
Near the beginning of the video, Gomez raises her arms above her head, showing off the new tattoo on the back of her right arm. Though the tattoo isn’t fully visible, Gomez has previously said that it features the date of her 2017 kidney transplant.
The singer gave another look at the tattoo in an Instagram post of photos from the “Rare” music video shoot. A number “6” is visible on her arm in one of the photos, possibly indicating that the transplant occurred in June 2017, though the star has never confirmed the exact date.
