Selena Gomez’s first tattoo was a tiny music note on the side of her right wrist. “I was named after a singer [Tejano singer Selena Quintanilla-Pérez] and music obviously is a big influence for me,” Selena told E! Online. “And there’s music stuff with my mom that means a lot to me, too.”
Selena got the tattoo at Under The Gun in Hollywood, CA by artist Louie Gomez on February 22, 2012. The tattoo came shortly after Selena announced that she would be taking a break from music to spend most of 2012 focusing on her acting career. Perhaps she wanted the tattoo to remind herself that music is a part of her even when she’s not performing?
