Whether you're looking to get inked for the first time or just trying to add a little more to your collection, the perfect tattoo can be a hard thing to come by. If you're not on board with a taco tattoo or a Spanish quote, these celebrities have some top-notch Mexican-inspired ink you'll definitely envy.

Badass Mexican actor Danny Trejo has a Mexican cowgirl taking up a big part of his chest.

Trejo reportedly got this ink while in prison, but that's not the most important point. The girl in the tattoo is wearing a big sombrero with a bright red heart to signify "forever" with his wife, Debbie.

Selena Gomez has a few tiny tats, but the one of a music note stands out more than the rest because of its connection to her Mexican heritage.

“I was named after a singer [Tejano singer Selena Quintanilla-Pérez] and music obviously is a big influence for me,” Gomez said a while back. “And there’s music stuff with my mom that means a lot to me, too.”

"My family's history and the fact that all the traditions and morals passed down have shaped me to be who I am today is what it means to be a second-generation-born Mexican-American for me," she said about her Mexican pride.
