Selena Gomez's tattoo artist is sharing more details about the singer's newest ink that sent fans into a frenzy earlier this month.

Gomez's go-to celebrity tattoo artist Keith Scott "Bang Bang" McCurdy — who has also worked on body art for Rihanna and Lebron James — posted a close-up shot on Tuesday of the 29-year-old star's large back tattoo of a rose with a black stem that appears to be dripping down her spine.

"Watercolor on @selenagomez," he captioned the photo on Instagram. "Thank you for always being wonderful🖤."

Fans gushed over the reveal in the comment section, with one fan writing, "Love it and love her!! She's stunning🔥." Another commented, "❤️🙌😍 I LOVE IT SO MUCH❤️🙌😍."

Gomez has yet to comment about the new ink herself, but the Only Murders in the Building actress is no stranger to tattoos — she reportedly has at least 16 total, including the new back ink, according to Page Six. Many of them represent important moments in her life, including the date of her kidney transplant.

Her first tattoo was a small music note on her wrist. In a 2012 interview with Access Hollywood, she said she got the tattoo because "music is a big influence in my life."

She added, "I was named after a singer, I'm a singer and a lot of other personal reasons. So, that's what I got."

She last visited Bang Bang in April to get a dainty cross tattooed across her collarbone. The artist posted a video of Gomez with the fresh ink on Instagram at the time, writing: "We 🤍 @selenagomez."

Several of the Disney Channel alum's other pieces are also from the artist, including one of her latest: the word "Rare," a nod to her 2020 album and cosmetics line Rare Beauty.

In 2014, Bang Bang inscribed the Arabic words that translate to "love yourself first" on her back below her right shoulder. He's also etched the roman numerals LXXVI, representing the number 76, on the back of her neck.

Bang Bang told the Daily Mail at the time that the ink "was a tribute to a family member who she said means a lot to her."
