Selena has given her fans a glimpse at her new tattoo for the first time.
On Saturday, the singer shared a series of behind-the-scenes photos from her music video shoot.
“So my rare video is out! So I’m posting a few pics from that day,” she captioned the images.
In one of the photos,
Gomez is pictured with her arms raised above her head. A date tattoo is clearly visible just above her right elbow, however only the first number, six, can be identified.The tattoo can also be spotted at the beginning of the music video for the new song, which is set in a whimsical garden.
While the tattoo isn’t fully clear, Gomez has previously confirmed that it features the date of her kidney transplant, which took place in 2017. The number six possibly indicates that the transplant occurred in June.
Gomez revealed the meaning behind her new arm tattoo.
“I actually got the date of when I got my kidney transplant,” she said, gesturing towards her right arm.
“And I did that with the girl that gave me her kidney.”
In September 2017, the "Good For You" singer revealed that she had received a kidney transplant from her friend Francia Raisa following organ damage caused by the autoimmune disease lupus, which she has battled for several years.
