Paris Jackson’s New Tattoos Honor Michael Jackson, Plus More Musical Icons
Paris Jackson has honored her father Michael Jackson with another tattoo, and it's even better than the last. What's more, it resides near additional tributes to Prince, David Bowie and the band Van Halen.
"Right hand finally finished!!" Jackson wrote in a Sunday night (July 10) Instagram post, in which she showed off her themed hand ink in a Boomerang mini-video. She also wrote "I f---cking love you" and mentioned L.A. tattoo artist Justin Lewis and the four artists she was honoring (well, their Instagram accounts; three out of the four are deceased while Eddie Van Halen is alive and well).
"BAD" is emblazoned on Jackson's hand just above her wrist, in the same red graffiti font that's on Michael Jackson's seventh studio album of the same name. Bowie's signature Aladdin Sane-era lightning bolt is on her pinkie, Van Halen's symbol is on her forefinger and Prince's "love symbol" sits forever on the edge of her hand.
It's isn't the first memorial tattoo on Jackson's body, nor the second: In May she got a piece that's MJ's Dangerous album cover, and back in April she had "Queen of My Heart" inked on her wrist.
"To everyone else he was the King of Pop. To me, well, he was the king of my heart,” she explained in an April 4 Instagram post. Michael Jackson died on June 25, 2009; Paris was 11 years old at the time.
