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.”


Mexican-American tattoo artist Kat Von D's entire back is dedicated to celebrating her background.

She rocks "Mi Vida Loca" in big letters with an image of Carmen Miranda above it.


Becky G kept it plain and simple with "Familia" written on her wrist.

"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.


Singer Miguel took inspiration from Greek mythology, but with a Spanish-language twist.

He has “La excelencia no es un acto, sino un hábito" inked on his chest, which translates to “Excellence is not an act, but a habit."


Selena Quintanilla's brother A.B. went all out in honor of The Queen.

Aside from the head tattoo of her name, A.B. also got "Como La Flor" in big lettering on his arm.


She may not be Mexican, but Miley Cyrus has certainly taken an interest in the culture with her ink. First, with a sugar skull...

She and boyfriend Liam Hemsworth have matching Día de los Muertos sugar skull tattoos on their ankles.


... and next, with an avocado.
