While celeb body art choices are sometimes questionable (Ariana Grande’s nine Pete Davidson-related tats seem a bit much in retrospect), they’re definitely always interesting. And the A-list certainly knows where to go for the best work; their in-demand tattoo artists, like Toronto’s Curt Montgomery and L.A.-fave Doctor Woo, can have wait lists as long as two years.
So when they make their big reveal, we’re always ready to see their new ink. This year, we’re tracking all the new celebrity tattoos—from the matching ink Selena Gomez got with her BFFs to Halsey’s newest tat (which she had inked “seconds” before performing on SNL!), and more. Whether you need a little inspo for your own tattoo, or you just want to gawk at those what-were-they-thinking pics, we’ve rounded up the latest and greatest for your perusal.

Libra season may be *officially* over, but there’s nothing like a lifelong tat to remember it by. "Bad at Love" singer Halsey debuted some new ink on the ’gram on November 10, revealing that the new addition was designed by rapper Lil Wayne, and was permanently inked “seconds” before she performed with the rapper on that night's episode of Saturday Night Live.
“On my Libra scale I’m weighin sins and forgiveness“ Got this yatted by @jonboytattoo seconds before walking onstage. thanks for writing this one out for me,” the singer captioned a photo on Instagram. The tattoo references a lyric from the rapper’s song “She Will,” off of Wayne’s 2011 album Tha Carter IV. Talk about #badass.
