Prince Jackson gets a tattoo tribute to late father Michael Jackson

Michael Jackson’s 20-year-old son, Prince, has got a tattoo tribute to his late father.

Prince took to Instagram last night to share video footage of his new inking, which shows the iconic singer posing with his arms in the air as angel wings unfurl from his back.

Michael was just 13 when his father died.

Prince captioned the video with: “Thanks @dermagraphink for sittin 9hrs with me for such an incredible and beautiful tattoo. I will be posting more of this.”

The tattoo artist Justin Lewis, who works at Timeless Tattoo in Hollywood, shared the same video with a series of hashtags, alongside the caption: “I had so much fun @princejackson I am so pleased that I made your day braddah. [sic]”


The inking comes just days after Prince got a yin and yang symbol to match his 18-year-old sister, Paris, with Paris saying of the tattoos at the time: “Sometimes I feel like my big brother and I always think the same thoughts, he just doesn’t have a filter and always vocalizes them though total opposites.

“Like my gooko and I, the inseparable yin and yang work together, finding and causing balance within each other. Matchies with my bestie @princejackson! [sic]”

Paris also has multiple tribute tattoos to her late father, including ‘Queen of My Heart’ written in the King of Pop’s handwriting and the album cover of her dad’s hit record ‘Dangerous’.

Captioning the photo, Paris quoted the words her father wrote in his 1992 book of poems and reflections, entitled ‘Dancing the Dream’, sharing: “’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.’

Paris has more than 50 tattoos, nine that are specifically dedicated to Michael.

“Never forget your roots, and always be proud of where you came from.”

Paris and Prince were just 11 and 13 respectively when Michael died in 2009, with the pair also being older siblings to 15-year-old Blanket.
