Selena Gomez has debuted a new mysterious tattoo that many believe is the start of a new era. A photo of the unique inking was shared by Bang Bang Tattoos on Instagram.

The singer was seen dressed in baggy black apparel. She stood far off in a corner donning black pants with a jacket that was worn backward. Her hair was worn in a sleek back updo and parted to reveal a new inking.

The mysterious tattoo featured a circular shape and extensions, but its actual design wasn't clear as the photo was taken from quite a distance. Selena hasn't posted the image on her page or publicly addressed it, but fans are going berzerk over the new inking.
