Paris Jackson has some new ink and its story will make your heart explode.
Paris turned 18 just three days ago. Yesterday, she posted on Instagram about getting a new tattoo along the side of her left wrist. The tat reads “Queen of My Heart” and it’s in father Michael’s handwriting, according to Paris’ post. The teen also shared a little tidbit about the meaning behind the ink. Have tissues near.
“’Queen of My Heart’ in his handwriting,” she wrote. “To everyone else he was the King of Pop. To me, well, he was the king of my heart.”
Poignant, loving and beautiful. Paris’ stunning new ink is a wonderful tribute to her father that celebrates him in an intimate way. View the post here.
Did you break into that box of tissues? (We did.)
Well done, Paris. Well done.
UPDATE: 4/11/2016 4:30 P.M.
A week after getting both a tattoo honoring her father and one honoring her grandmother, Paris has gotten even more ink. She had the word Motley tatted on the inside of her bottom lip as a tribute to her favorite band, Mötley Crüe.
Drummer Tommy Lee of Mötley Crüe posted a picture of Paris’ ink to Twitter, calling her a “beautiful creature.”

Paris also reportedly had the phrase “faith, trust and pixie dust” tatted on her shoulder.
