Some friendships are fleeting, while others stand the test of time, and though many people come and go from our lives, there are generally tell-tale signs a friendship will last for the long haul.
For Selena Gomez and Julia Michaels, the signs are pointing that way. Not only do the two ladies adore each other, but judging from their latest adventure, they’re linked for life. Gomez took the decision a day before her friend Michaels’ birthday on Wednesday. Here’s everything you have to know about what went down.
Major friendship goals
It all went down at The Black Lantern tattoo studio in Orange County following Michaels’ Nov. 11 performance at the Los Angeles Fonda Theater.
After Gomez made a surprise appearance at the show, the two ladies waltzed into the shop and sealed their friendship in ink literally. Their tat of choice? The singers got black arrows on their thumbs that point to one another when they hold hands.
An homage to friendship
“It’s tatted.. my arrow points to you forever,” the 27-year-old singer wrote on her Instagram stories, alongside a candid picture of her and her close friend sharing a special moment at the tattoo parlor.
The singer also shared multiple pictures from behind-the-scenes of her and Julia getting inked–they both got arrow-shaped designs on their lower thumbs. Moreover, the two superstars got their fresh ink done at The Black Lantern studio, according to artist London Reese, as was reported.
Wave of excitement
On Monday night, Selena made hearts explode when she surprised fans at the Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles.
During Julia’s concert, Gomez unexpectedly showed up on stage to perform the second-to-last song of the night, according to an eyewitness. Michaels also reportedly told the crowd, “Let’s see what Selena thinks about it,” before bringing her out.
