The touching way Kelly Osbourne and other celebs keep their loved ones with them always

Kelly Osbourne hasn't hidden the fact that the sudden death of her mentor, Joan Rivers, came as a crushing blow.

Osbourne posted touching words about Rivers on Facebook upon hearing of her death, saying, "Not only was she my boss, she was and always will be my teacher, therapist, closest friend, inspiration and the only grandmother I ever knew." Now, Osbourne has given herself a permanent reminder that Rivers will always be with her in the form of fresh ink. She posted two Instagram photos of herself getting a tattoo of a small bee on her shoulder, because a bee is a "creature that defied and beat the odds, a miracle."

1. Zelda Williams

Robin Williams' daughter grieved with the rest of the world after his tragic death. Earlier this week she marked herself with a hummingbird tattoo and her father's birthday on her wrist.

For poppo. Thank you to the incomparable @dr_woo_ssc for so beautifully bringing my reminders to life. I'll always put my hand out to shake with a smile. As for this Instagram, I don't know in what capacity I'll continue using it in the future, but I'm leaving it up regardless so that fake accounts hoping to use my name or misuse my family's photos will get no traction. To be clear, this is MY ONLY account. Publicly, I have Twitter, and this. If other people post quotes and photos claiming to be me or my family, please, do not send them personal information or click links, even for charity. They could be utilizing sympathy to scam you. For the record, no one has ever or will ever speak for me but me. Thank you.

2. Miley Cyrus

You can say a lot of things about Miley Cyrus, but you can't say she's not sentimental. Kat Von D designed a portrait tattoo of Cyrus' late grandmother last year and the songstress also got art to remember her beloved dog, Floyd, after she was crushed by his death this past spring.

3. Bobbi Kristina Brown

Whitney Houston's daughter and her then-fiancé, Nick Gordon, got matching tattoos to commemorate the legendary songstress after her death. Gordon later went on to finish his piece off with an intricate portrait of Houston.


4. Travis Barker

After the horrible plane crash in 2008 that killed his friend, Adam 'DJ AM' Goldstein, and left him too afraid to fly, Barker got a tattoo for him on his left thigh. Barker revealed the tattoo on Twitter in 2008.

5. Bam Margera and Wee Man

After Jackass's Ryan Dunn perished in a car crash in 2011, his comrades only felt it right to get (more) tattoos in honor of their friend. Wee Man got one his leg, while Margera opted for a portrait on his shoulder.
