Paris Jackson was only 11 years old when her father passed away at the age of 50 in 2009. “To everyone else, he was the King of Pop. To me, well, he was the king of my heart,” Jackson wrote of the late Michael Jackson in an Instagram post from April 2016. Last night, she showed her love for her father with a new tattoo on her forearm.
The tat is a re-creation of Michael Jackson’s iconic album cover for Dangerous, which was released in 1991. “Black or White” was the album’s biggest single. Paris’s new tattoo depicts the part of the album cover with her father’s eyes peering through a filigree framework containing a monkey’s head, elephant, ram, and other assorted animals. The quote Paris chose to accompany the photograph of her new ink comes from her father’s 1992 book, Dancing the Dream. According to Paris’s tattoo artist, Justin Lewis, it’ll take one more session to complete the piece, during which he’ll add some shading.
Paris got her first tattoo in honor of her father in April of this year. It reads “Queen of my Heart,” in Michael Jackson’s handwriting.

As the daughter of a celebrity, it goes without saying that Paris Jackson’s Instagram is going to be pretty next level. Whether it’s posting a meme that perfectly displays her personality or chronicling her ever-changing, always awesome hair, she’s quickly rising in the ranks of “who to follow NOW.”
And over the weekend, she proved that photo inspiration can and does stay very much in the family when she posted a tribute to her father, Michael. She posed in front of a still of her father from the “Bad” music video, in a similar leather jacket to the King of Pop, and even mimicked his stance in the image, which she captioned “archangel.”
Paris has been open about the scrutiny she faces both online and in real life as the daughter of someone so exceedingly famous. She has even been known to defend herself from people who comment maliciously without knowing the first thing about her. So to see her in such a vulnerable and heartfelt moment is pretty poignant, and proof that she’s not letting the haters keep her from celebrating her roots.
