Selena Gomez is having fun with her new ink.

The 27-year-old singer has debuted a neck tattoo, in honor of her just-released album, Rare. Gomez showed off her new ink overnight on Instagram, posting a video and a photo of her "Rare" tat, done by famed tattoo artist Bang Bang.

"Did it again @bangbangnyc [butterfly emoji] rare," Gomez captioned the Instagram post.

As for why the Disney alum chose the neck area for her new ink, Bang Bang tells E! News, "I think she always had her neck in mind so we tried a few different spots but then decided on her neck right under her jaw. After we placed it there she instantly said  she 'loved it.'"

The tattoo artist adds, "She felt it would be an easy thing to cover if she ever did an acting job, it would only need a little spot of makeup to cover and that was her only concern with putting it in a prominent place."

Bang Bang, who calls Gomez "wonderful," also tells E! News that the songstress was in an "amazing" mood while getting her tattoo.

"She was excited. When I did her tattoo of the prayer hands about a month ago we were listening to her album," Bang Bang shares. "And it's nerve-wracking trying to critique your own work before the world sees it, and this time I could tell she was just really happy with it. She said it was her best album yet."

Over the years, Gomez has debuted a number of new tattoos, each with special meanings. Let's take a look at the messages behind Gomez's ink!
