Selena Gomez debuted a new tattoo she shared post-American Music Awards performance.

The 27-year-old shared a photo of Polaroids on her Instagram of the new tattoo on her upper left thigh. The new ink is a black and white image of praying hands that are holding a rosary. The photos show Gomez getting ready for her debut "Lose You To Love Me" and "Look At Her Now" AMAs performance on Sunday (November 24).

The tattoo artist, Keith "Bang Bang" McCurdy, shared behind the scenes snapshots of him tattooing the singer which he has worked with for over six years. "For the wonderful @selenagomez thank you for the trust #housecall," he captioned the photo.

McCurdy confirmed to Refinery29 that he tattooed her after her AMAs rehearsal on Thursday (Nov. 21) night. The piece was tested on different areas of her leg before choosing the final spot which took about five hours to complete.

"I wanted to find a spot that it would land and would look really unique to her," he told the outlet. "So we played with a couple of areas on her leg, and that's where she loved it the most."

Earlier this month, Gomez got a wrist tattoo with her best friend and collaborator Julia Michaels after they gave the live debut performance of their collaboration, "Anxiety," at Michaels' concert.
