A photo of Paris Jackson’s new tattoo made its debut on Instagram on Tuesday and was a way to pay tribute to her late father, pop icon, Michael Jackson. The tattoo reads, “Queen of My Heart,” written in Michael’s handwriting. Jackson captioned the black-and-white photo with “To everyone else he was the King of Pop. To me, well he was the king of my heart.[sic]” followed by “Thank you @dermagraphink you’re a legend.” Check out Paris Jackson’s new tattoo photo below!
In the photo, Jackson is seen sitting in a chair across from her tattoo artist, smiling while looking at her arm where the tattoo is placed.
According to E!, Jackson took to Instagram and responded to comments relating to how she was living her life. “It’s so selfish that I am literally attacked on every f–king thing I post just because people that I DON’T EVEN KNOW aren’t getting what they want…I appreciate the love and support, but the expectations are f–king ridiculous [sic],” she responded to a critic on the picture-sharing platform. “The expectations for my DAD were f–king ridiculous. He didn’t owe you anything, yet he was ripped to shreds DAILY. I will not let that happen to me. [sic]” You tell ‘em, Paris!
Jackson had always looked up to her father, so it came to no surprise to anyone that she would defend Michael especially after witnessing all the hard times he had with the press.
When Michael died in 2009, Jackson and her brothers, Prince and Michael Jr,, were raised by other family members and spent the majority of their time with their grandmother, Katherine Jackson. E! also reported that Jackson attended a boarding school in Utah where she suffered from depression and a suicide attempt. The 18-year-old has since then been doing better and living a happier life. Jackson clearly just wants to pay tribute to her father and a life that feels right to her—and that’s okay!
