American actress Selena Gomez has revealed the meaning behind her matching tattoo with British model Cara Delevingne.
While appearing in a virtual interview on Live with Kelly and Ryan, the 29-year-old singer said she got a matching tattoo with Delevingne because of the impact she had on her life:
"It means a couple of different things, Me and Cara, one of my best friends that I’ve known for — I was maybe 16 when I met her — she calls me Rosebud."
Gomez revealed that it was a nickname and she has always wanted to get a rose tattoo. She went on to explain how she has also has matching tattoos with her mother, Julia Michaels, and her other best friends as well.
"I have, actually, multiple tattoos with people who have honestly left a significant mark on my life.''
Gomez made headlines for her freshly-inked back tattoo in December 2021, when the tattooist posted a monochrome picture of the singer facing backwards. However, her tattoo was not clearly visible.
News of Delevingne and Gomez getting matching tattoos comes to light after the Paper Towns actress was featured in a short clip on Bang Bang Tattoo's Instagram page. The 11-second video was posted hours after the tattooist uploaded a close-up of Gomez's back.
