Paris Jackson adds uplifting new tattoo during coronavirus pandemic
Paris Jackson‘s new ink comes with a hopeful message.
The 21-year-old daughter of late music legend Michael Jackson took to Instagram Thursday to show off her latest tattoo, an inscription on her neck written in the Elvish language from author J.R.R. Tolkien’s “Lord of the Rings” books.
The design, created by LA’s Tattoo Mania, includes an uplifting quote from Tolkien’s “The Fellowship of the Ring,” which Jackson translated for her fans: “a light from the shadows [shall spring].”
Considering the timing, it’s likely the musician was aiming to inspire optimism in the face the current coronavirus pandemic, during which people across the globe — famous and not — are staying home to slow the disease’s spread.
The Elvish artwork joins a host of other tattoos on Jackson’s body — over 50 in total — that include chakra symbols on her chest, a Mötley Crüe-inspired snake on her bicep and four designs that nod to Led Zeppelin on the back of her arm.
