London: Pop star Lady Gaga honoured her late aunt Joanne along with her father by getting matching tattoos of her name.
The “Poker Face” singer named her most recent album Joanne after her late aunt, who died of lupus aged 19 before Gaga was born.
The 30-year-old already bears her aunt’s moniker as a middle name, has the date of her death tattooed on her upper arm, and her father Joe named his Italian restaurant in New York Joanne Trattoria after her, but they have now gone one step further in honouring their relative by both getting Joanne’s signature permanently etched on themselves.
Gaga posted a picture on Instagram showing her posing for the camera in jeans, a cropped white T-shirt and the pink hat used on her new album cover.
Her new tattoo on her on the inside of her left forearm can clearly be seen with her other body art.
“Got Joanne tattooed on my arm in her actual signature,” Gaga wrote in the caption.
“My dad got one too. With an angel on his shoulder.
