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.

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.

CREDIT: slow_n_low_tattoo / Instagram

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.

CREDIT: valeriemunster / Instagram

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.

Missouri Woman Seen Holding Pelosi Sign Faces First Judge In Series Of Court Dates For Federal Charges

Update January 21, 2021

A Missouri woman named Emily Hernandez had a court hearing in St. Louis after her involvement in the Capitol riots. Hernandez, 21, is facing several federal charges after participating in the deadly Capitol riot.

Emily Hernandez is facing the music after storming the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6.

According to KSDK, Hernandez, who is from Sullivan, Missouri, has been released without bond after her first hearing in St. Louis. She has been ordered to stay in the Eastern District of Missouri until her next court date in Washington. Part of the terms of her release is that she is not allowed to travel to Washington other than for her court date.

During the hearing, she was recorded saying, “I’m sorry, I’m nervous.”

Hernandez is facing the following federal charges: knowingly entering or remaining in any restricted building or grounds, disorderly conduct which impedes the conduct of government business, steal, sell, convey or dispose of anything of value in the United States, disruptive conduct in the Capitol buildings, parading, demonstrating or picketing in the Capitol buildings.

Original: After a group of Trump supporters stormed the Capitol Jan. 6, people immediately started identifying the intruders. Videos have been circulating and people are steadily contacting the FBI to expose them. Instagram page @homegrownterrorists is one of the leading forces in identifying the rioters.

On Jan. 6, people stormed our Capitol building and the American people are demanding justice.

Images of people storming the Capitol building and looting the offices of members of Congress startled people around the world. One of the safest places in the world was overrun by far-right Trump supporters attacking the democratic process. Americans are demanding justice and working together to identify and report as many people to the FBI that were at the Capitol.

The Instagram page is unapologetically encouraging followers to identify people at the Capitol.

Five people died as a result of the riot, two of them were police officers. The Instagram page, run anonymously, is encouraging people to share the photos to their stories to increase the reach. The account might not have any legal power, but it is having some success. There has been more than one person identified through the IG page that has led to people losing jobs and being arrested by the FBI.

The account has disappeared multiple times but always comes back.

The mystery person running the account has expressed concern over their safety. The account has been suspended by Instagram after being reported by multiple people. There has even been some talk about them receiving threats of violence via DMs.

The person who runs the account has mentioned it randomly on their stories but with no real detail. According to recent stories, the person behind the account doesn’t want to antagonize the people sending threats.

The owner of the account did say that they have been contacted by Instagram about the account.

A tweet from HomeGrownTerrorists caught Instagram’s attention and the account was reinstated. However, there was a backup account to keep functioning in case the original got deleted. IG and the account owner reached an agreement where they get to keep the main account and the backup account was permanently banned. No questions asked.

If you want to help or be connected to the cause, you can follow this page on Instagram.

There are a lot of people left to identify and the nation’s law enforcement is bracing for more violence. Capitols in all 50 states are on alert for possible attacks and the National Guard is being mobilized in big numbers for the inauguration. We are not out of the woods when it comes to the threats that have been made.

UPS Delivery Man Is Fired After Video Surfaces of His Anti-Latino Racist Rant

UPS Delivery Man Is Fired After Video Surfaces of His Anti-Latino Racist Rant

An unnamed UPS delivery driver has been fired after being caught using racist language when delivering a package to a Latino household. The incident occurred on December 17th.

The video, which was caught on a doorbell camera’s security footage, shows a white UPS driver appearing to be angry when delivering a package.

“Now you don’t get f—–g nothing…You can’t read and write and speak the f—–g English language,” he says while writing a “failed to deliver” notice and pasting it on the house’s front door.

The Aviles family says that the footage shows that the UPS worker never even attempted to deliver the package in the first place. He never rang the doorbell or knocked on the door. Based on that, the family has come to the conclusion that the driver intentionally withheld the package from the family out of prejudice and spite

They believe that the only way the driver could’ve known that the family was Latino was by making assumptions based off the name on the package.

“The only information this driver had that could serve as a trigger for this deep-seated hate was the name on the package,” said Forward Latino President Darryl Morin at a press conference addressing the incident.

“So what we have here is a very intentional act to ruin Christmas for somebody, for someone to spew this hateful rhetoric, and quite honestly to deceive their employer,” Morin continued.

Per UPS, the employee has now been fired. “There is no place in any community for racism, bigotry or hate. This is very serious and we promptly took action, terminating the driver’s employment. UPS is wholeheartedly committed to diversity, equity and inclusion,” UPS said in a statement. They also said they contacted the family to apologize.

But the Aviles family is still rattled that such bigoted people are out and about, letting their petty prejudices effect other people’s lives.

“The package was a Christmas gift that we eventually received after Christmas Day, but what if it happened to have time-sensitive content like an epipen or a book I needed to take a final,” said Shirley Aviles, the mother of the man who lives at the address, told NBC News. “I don’t get it. It’s just sad.”

Aviles seemed disturbed about what this incident says about human nature. “This is about the things people do when they think no one is watching them. That’s important because that’s when you see people’s true colors and that’s what’s scary,”
