Selena Gomez is learning to love herself first.

The pop star just got inked with a new tattoo, which she showed off on Instagram this week.

Gomez had the words “Love Yourself First” inscribed in Arabic on her right shoulder, “Billboard” reports. In the post, the “Come & Get It” singer gave a shout-out to her tattoo artist, Bang Bang McCurdy.

“Art by @bangbangnyc – from first to last. It’s always this fool,” she captioned the image.

Gomez has been promoting high self-esteem to her fans for some time now.

During a speech she gave at a We Day event in California in March, she explained the pressure she faces from the people around her about how to act and dress and speak.

“Until recently, I had given into that pressure. I lost sight of who I was, I listened to opinions of people, and I tried to change who I am,” she told the crowd. “And I realized I don’t know how to be anything but myself.”

Gomez also slammed a bullying fan last December, writing online, “[M]y fans don’t do this to others. That’s not what I stand for so you can gladly stop being a fan of me. I only encourage love, confidence, kindness.”
