Selena Gomez gets new tattoo with pop pal Julia Michaels
Selena Gomez doesn’t just show up to an event — she leaves her mark.
The pop diva, 27, made a surprise appearance at a Julia Michaels concert at the Fonda Theater in Los Angeles, California, on Monday night. After the frequent collaborators performed their duet “Anxiety” together and exchanged on-stage hugs and kisses, they headed backstage, changed into more comfortable clothes and cemented their friendship with matching tattoos from artists London Reese and Brad Reis.
Though it’s unclear what designs the two decided to get, it appears that they opted for small tattoos at the base of their thumbs, and held hands while Reese and Reis worked their magic.
Gomez already has plenty of dainty body art, including the letter “G” behind her ear (for her sister Gracie Teefey), the word “sunshine” on her foot, a semicolon on her wrist (for mental health awareness) and more. Michaels, meanwhile, is covered in colorful tattoos that range from snakes and hearts to diamonds, flowers and more.
The “Come and Get It” singer has made a habit of getting matching ink with her friends; earlier this year, she and three of her closest pals got coordinating “4” tattoos to represent their close-knit group, while two of her “13 Reasons Why” cast members got her same semicolon tat.
Michaels often writes and provides background vocals for Gomez’s songs, including “Bad Liar,” “Hands to Myself” and her most recent single, “Lose You to Love Me.” (Ironically, Michaels also penned Justin Bieber’s “Sorry,” about his breakup with Gomez in 2015.)
The duo’s surprise performance comes one day after Gomez attended Michaels’ ’90s prom-themed birthday party wearing a moody slip dress and with her hair piled high into a piece-y updo. In an Instagram caption of a photo from the party, Gomez called Michaels “my love, my heart and my soul.”
Monday marked the first time Michaels and Gomez have performed “Anxiety” together since the song was released in January. “I’m kind of convinced these last few days aren’t real,” Michaels captioned video from the event. “Thank you @selenagomez for the most epic headline show I’ve ever played. I love you beyond words and I’m so happy we finally got to sing our baby together.”
