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.

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.

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.
