Michael Jackson's son has honoured his late father with a new tattoo in his likeness.

Sharing a video of the finished ink to his Instagram account, Prince Jackson showed off the tattoo that features the King of Pop in one of his best-known poses, wearing that famous black and red fedora hat. The tattoo also shows Jackson with wings as he raises his arms.

"Thanks @dermagraphink for sitting 9hrs with me for such an incredible and beautiful tattoo. I will be posting more of this," Prince captioned the picture.

He's not the first in the family to honour his father with some body art. Younger sister Paris Jackson also paid tribute to Jackson when she turned 18 last year. Paris's tattoo reads 'Queen of My Heart' in Jackson's handwriting.

Hollywood-based tattoo artist Justin Lewis completed both of the siblings' tattoos.

Prince and Paris have both denied any suggestion that Jackson was not their biological father, despite long-standing rumours to the contrary.

"He is my father," Paris told Rolling Stone last year. "He will always be my father. He never wasn't, and he never will not be. People that knew him really well say they see him in me, that it's almost scary."

"Every time someone asks me that, I ask, 'what's the point?" Prince added. "What difference does it make? Specifically to someone who's not involved in my life. How does that affect your life? It doesn't change mine."
