25 Selena Tattoos That Will Make Your Heart Go Bidi Bidi Bom Bom

Selena will forever be in our hearts no matter what anyone says. She blessed the world and us with her amazing Tejano music and truly lived as la reina. She might have been killed in 1995, but her memory lives on in our heart. There are also a few people who keep Selena’s memory alive via tattoos. How she felt about tattoos? We might never know but these fans are putting her on their bodies for life and they seem totally fine with the idea. Here are 25 Selena tattoos celebrating la reina.

That iconic movie title font is instantly recognizable.

The addition of Selena standing on top of it in her purple jumper is nice touch to really drive it home. But is it so amazing that that font is directly tied to that movie and our reina.

This iconic photo will never be old.

That is one expensive way to pay tribute to Selena, for sure. Just a regular, little Chinese character will run you close to $50 so we can only imagine how musch this rendition of the photo cost.

Nothing like some simple song lyrics to keep the posers at bay.

True Selena fans will be able to spot this tattoo coming from a mile away and what it truly means. You are probably singing this song to yourself right now, aren’t you?

Give her that virgen glo-up.

That’s right. There is nothing wrong with paying her the ultimate tribute and canonizing her. Who can argue that she is not among the angels after her tragic death.

Why not get the most recognizable lyrics on your body?

This is so damn adorable. The use of the rose to let you know without a doubt that this is definitely about Selena Quintanilla-Perez.

Minimal line work can tell a very strong story.

To most people this will just look like a rose but to a true Selena fan, this is everything. She loved roses and a touching way to remember her is to get a simple (or large) rose in remembrance.

Can’t forget about those Dinos, yo.

Selena became a name in her own right but it was because of Los Dinos that she started that climb into stardom. You should never forget the people that got you to where you are.

Turn one of her photos into a glam shot.

There is nothing wrong with tweaking her photos just a bit. It is actually a way to flatter the original since it now has a new life.

You are never too old to dig some cartoons.

This is eeeeeverything. From the sparkles to the color purple to her super cool hair. How are more people not in love with this take on Selena and her final concert?

Just the first name is enough.

Very few people have been able to reach the status that they are only known by one name. Others include Cher and Madonna. Seems like Selena is in good company.

Make it a little artistic by interpreting a lyric.

If you don’t know, that comes from “Como La Flor” hence all of the flowers over the phrase. This is such a cool idea that I might have to go out and get the same tattoo.

Día de los Muertos realness for the late queen.

Anything for Selena indeed. Some might think this is offensive but those people don’t know Mexican culture. This is how you represent loved one’s lost in the land of the dead.

On the nose tattoos are not bad.

“Como La Flor” wrapped around a rose is super literal but super classic. Got to love this take because it is probably exactly what she’d like.

Make her more of a pop culture icon.

Lotería meets Selena. We all know that La Sirena is known for her beauty and singing. Seems like exactly what we remember Selena for so…

Did we already mention Día de los Muertos?

Doesn’t matter because it is that awesome. This is what you do when you want to remember Mexican and Mexican-American loved ones when they pass.

Song titles can make the best tattoos.

We all know the significance of Apt. 512. There is a chico in there and we need to learn everything we can about him because he is the chico.

Selena adjacent tattoos are just as awesome.

It doesn’t have to be an image of the actual singer to be a touching tribute. This little tattoo of the car that saved a stranded Selena is so awesome and super relevant to her memory.

Get a pin-up Selena because why not.

This is another iconic look from the incredible singer. Why not make it more modern by giving it a pin-up feel?

The Selena fan dog whistle for the ages.

She was the biggest fan of pizzas and Coca-Cola. She was even a spokesperson for Coca-Cola so it is really a good tribute to the late-singer.

Quote her dad if you want to make a real splash.

No one will ever forget this moment in the movie when her father is totally blindsided with the super forward and progressive outfit.

This is Selena if she was going to Coachella.

Would she really go to Coachella? Probably. Selena did like dancing and listening to live music. After all, she made her start singing at fairs and festivals.

Honor her long overdue makeup line.

It sold out so quickly you probably never got to get your hands on any of it. The fact that it sold out before you could buy it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t honor it.

Zombie Selena might be a bit much.

However, who are you to tell someone how they can honor someone? Maybe they love zombies and Selena so this is the perfect homage.

Make Selena’s wax statue a tattoo.

Talk about meta. Rather than getting a tattoo of a real photo of Selena, you choose to get a tattoo of a wax statue based on a photo of the singer you are so in love with.

Juggalo Selena it kind of out there.

Hard to get behind something that seems to be way too much for any Selena fan to fully support.

#IceBae Has Blown Up The Internet. Meet The Latina Border Patrol Agent Behind The Viral Hashtag That Has Latino Twitter Freaking Out

#IceBae Has Blown Up The Internet. Meet The Latina Border Patrol Agent Behind The Viral Hashtag That Has Latino Twitter Freaking Out

A Latina Border Patrol agent has gone viral as #IceBae and from the looks of her new account on Twitter she seems to be enjoying the new found fame.

The agent, who identified herself as Kiara Cervantes, was photographed providing security for Mike Pence during his visit to a migrant detention center in Texas. From that photograph came #IceBae with thirsty fans calling her out for her beauty. But it also attracted many people who were appalled that a Latina would participate in the mass imprisonment of largely Latino men, women, and children.

All this started when a Latina Border Patrol guard was photographed providing security for Mike Pence at a migrant detention center.

So, who is the Latina officer in the photograph? The female officer has since been identified as Kiara Cervantes.  Many of the original comments were focused on her good looks, which kicked off the pretty bizarre hashtag #IceBae

Since the photo went viral, Kiara has started up her own Twitter account and has already racked up nearly 37.5k followers in less than 2 days.

It looks like Cervantes enjoyed the new found attention and decided to create a Twitter account to capitalize on all the fame. She posted a video (which has since been deleted) introducing herself as the #IceBae.

Apprently, Ice Bae has all sorts of ‘supporters’ that she had to thank on Twitter.

Credit: @kiarace24 / Twitter

Because of the response to the original photo and that #IceBae was trending on Twitter with thousands of thirsty comments, Cervantes decided to create a Twitter account. One of her first tweets was to thank everyone for all the ‘support’ and to tell her ‘supporters’ how much she loves them.

She’s also taken to Twitter to share some selfies of her in uniform with her new found supporters.

Because when you work at a detention center that houses migrants in overcrowded cages and is at the center of an international scandal, of course selfies should be on your list of to-dos.

At least a few people on Twitter tried to help her out with some caption ideas for her new photo…

I mean that is pretty clever if it wasn’t so depressing.

And this person who kept her caption suggestion poignant yet simple.

What would you caption her photo with?

Seriously, the people are not here for it.

Apart from all of #IceBae’s supporters, her detractors are definitely speaking out on social media. Many pointed out how by sexualizing Cervantes they were also sexualizing the dehumanization of the very people being held in the detention centers.

Rapper Fat Nick, called her out as ‘literal scum’, that her family would be ashamed of.

Cervantes fired back Sunday at rapper Fat Nick who tweeted that her family will disown her and “shame on any Hispanic working for ice of anything of that nature.”

“I think that’s really rude and naive of you to say,” she tweeted. “You have no idea who my parents are and no idea what goes into my job on a daily basis… before speaking on something you know nothing about…. DONT. Regardless I’m blessed and thankful for the career I have.”

Another Twitter user pointed out what pretty much most of the Latino community is thinking.

One Twitter user, among thousands of others, called #IceBae what many are thinking: a guard at a concentration camp. For people to be idolizing a person who is supporting a system of injustice, racism, and bigotry, has many people across social media very upset, particularly those in the Latino community who feel #IceBae has turned her back on them.

J Balvin Gets In The Business Of Japanese Hip Hop As He Announces New Project For Anime Film

J Balvin is totally on a roll right now. He’s just released a surprise album, Oasis, with Bad Bunny which has rocketed to the top of the charts and now the Colombian singer has announced a new project that will take him in an entirely different direction.

J Balvin is working with a Japanese hip hop group in an upcoming anime film.

Reggaetonero and Latin music superstar J Balvin has teamed up with Japan-based hip-hop trio m-flo on the theme song for a new animated movie, called HUMAN LOST, to be released in theaters worldwide this fall.

The popularity of Japan’s anime culture is increasing around the world, so it makes perfect sense for the “Mi Gente” singer to do such an incredible collaboration.

The anime film he’s working on is based on a sci-fi novel from 1948.

The original novel, called No Longer Human, is rated as the second best selling novel in all of Japan. I’m pretty sure it’s safe to assume, that with the backing of J Balvin and m-flo, the new adaptation will do even better.

No Longer Human is told in the form of notebooks left by one Ōba Yōzō, a troubled man incapable of revealing his true self to others, and who is instead forced to uphold a facade of hollow humor.

The film, along with the new track, will hit theatres in the US this fall.

While the animated movie is set to hit the theaters in the U.S. in fall this year, it had its world premiere last Friday at the Anime Expo 2019 in Los Angeles.

M-Flo made a surprise appearance at the event to announce their involvement in the movie’s main theme, which features Balvin.

Turns out, M-Flo and Balvin also performed together at last year’s Summer Sonic Festival in Japan – Balvin’s first time performing in the country.

The “Safari” singer performed in Japan for the first time last summer at the annual Summer Sonic music festival, where m-flo’s VERBAL suggested they work on the theme song together.

A known fan of Japanese popular culture, Balvin readily accepted the offer and the collaboration took off from there.

Quite a few J Balvin fans were surprised by the annoucement but most were super excited for the project.

It’s definitely a big departure for the reggaeton singer but with the global popularity of Latino singers right now, it’s seems like a perfect match to us.

Some people on Twitter admitted they were just here for the new J Balvin track…not the anime.

Even if that’s true for some people, anime has exploded into a giant industry worth more than $18 billion globally, so I’d say Balvin is making the right decision.
