Selena Gomez is no stranger to two things: tattoos and music. So when the two recently collided in celebration of her third studio album, fans everywhere rejoiced in the new ink. However, it wasn't in any of the places we'd expect from Gomez. Not her arm, not her back, not her legs, and not even hands. Instead, it's on her neck, and everyone is talking about it. 

So ahead, check out the latest addition to her already extensive ink collection.

Last week, Selena Gomez finally released her third studio album, Rare.

Fans had been waiting on the drop and almost immediately everyone was streaming it. "HERE IT IS!!! My album is officially out in the universe," she said on Instagram to her fans. "Thank you for the souls that worked on this with me. Now it’s yours. Hope you like it." 


And the album has proven to be near and dear to heart. 

So much so, that she took to her Instagram live to ask fans to help her make it number one. "I just found out that my album is neck-to-neck with another incredible artist," she said. "I told people before that, you know, it's not about numbers for me, but I would love for the most important album I've ever released to become number one. So if you don't mind streaming it or listening to it on all the platforms, it would mean the absolute world to me. This is, again, something I've dreamed about for so long. But, regardless, I just hope that you guys are enjoying it and that it's something that you all can just enjoy and have. So no worries. Either way, I'm happy."

And while it debuting at number one is still up in the air, she's decided to get some more ink to celebrate the release. "Did it again @bangbangnyc, rare," she captioned a photo of a small neck tattoo reading the name of the album. 

The added ink is being described as a "power move."

And we'd have to agree. It's not everyday that music's sweetheart inks up her neck. "Selena Gomez getting a neck tattoo was exactly what I needed to see and I didn’t know it until this moment right now but wow. power move of the year," someone tweeted stanning the look. 

And as expected, she's inspiring the masses. 

"@selenagomez got a tiny neck tattoo and now all of a sudden I want a tiny neck tattoo. Weird," someone jokes expressing their new-found desire to ink their own body. And while many probably never considered a tattoo in such a spot, the dainty inspo is surely proving to be changing minds. 

The tattoo comes just after another tattoo dedicated to her kidney transplant was revealed. 

In late 2019, Gomez implied that she had gotten a tattoo to commemorate the life-changing experience, and it looks like she's gotten the date of her kidney transplant tattooed on the back of her arm. 

All this mini ink has us obsessed.
