Paris Jackson honours father with tattoo

Michael Jackson's daughter Paris honoured her late father by turning one of his touching notes into a tattoo.

The 18-year-old, who lost her pop icon father in 2009, headed to the Timeless Tattoo parlour in Hollywood to get the permanent tribute, the words "Queen of my Heart", which was written in Michael's handwriting, etched on the outer side of her lower left arm.


Paris, who is sporting a new cropped peroxide blonde hairstyle, shared a black-and-white photo on Instagram of her checking out her new body art.


"'Queen of My Heart' in his handwriting," she wrote in the caption. "To everyone else he was the King of Pop. To me, well, he was the king of my heart. Thank you @dermagraphink, you're a legend."


Tattoo artist Justin Lewis also added a picture to Instagram of Paris proudly displaying her new ink and explained, "Paris Michael Jackson got her tattoo today, letters from her father, so sweet."


It is thought Paris got the tattoo to mark her 18th birthday, which was on Sunday (03Apr16). She celebrated the occasion on social media by posting an image of herself locking lips with rocker boyfriend Michael Snoddy and taking a trip to Disneyland in California.


She wrote to fans, "Thank you everybody for the birthday wishes! you all mean the world to me."


Paris is Michael's second child from his marriage to Debbie Rowe. She has an older brother, Michael Joseph Jackson, Jr., 19. Michael 's third child Prince Michael Jackson II is 14.


Michael was 50 when he died in June, 2009 from an overdose of prescription drugs.
