Since turning 18, Paris Jackson has been making some pretty permanent changes to her appearance with her collection of tattoos — and her latest is a beautiful tribute to her late father, Michael Jackson.
Taking to Instagram on Monday, Jackson uploaded a photo of her new ink, inspired by Michael Jackson’s 1989 smash-hit album Dangerous. The image features Michael’s eyes framed by a detailed border, which includes several animals including an elephant, a rhino, a buffalo and a monkey.
Jackson captioned the tattoo with a very meaningful message. She wrote, “‘The meaning of life is contained in every single expression of life. It is present in the infinity of forms and phenomena that exist in all of creation.’ Never forget your roots, and always be proud of where you came from.”
This tattoo is clearly something that means a lot to her, and she is proud to share it with the world (it’s not the first time she’s paid tribute to her father with a tattoo), but, unfortunately, not everyone is happy about her decision.
While the majority of fans do think that Jackson’s tattoo is “beautiful,” “amazing” and “awesome,” and feel that her dad would be “so proud of you,” others are questioning whether Paris should be getting these tributes inked onto her body.
“One question is paris jackson going to have tattoos of her father all over her body I understand if it was some fan as u can see they all excited about the tattoo ok it her life and business…” one commenter questioned.
“Great! Now don’t get anymore,” captjackie68 wrote.
“Amazing art for sure!” savvyheir shared, before going on to question what Jackson intends to do with her life. “Are you going to school? Still want to become an actress? What are your ambition and goals, Hun? Where does your passion lie? You are such a beautiful soul, I hope your life path doesn’t lie within the ink on your body.”
And if you were wondering if Jackson’s image of her brand-new ink is the end result, well, it’s not. According to Timeless Tattoo artist Justin’s Dermagraphink there’s still one more session to go.
