Lady Gaga is into tattoos—we already know this.
She once got inked live at a perfume launch. Then there was the time back in 2010 when she commemorated the release of Born This Way with a unicorn tattoo. After that, came the artpop tattoo.
So the news that she’s got another piece of ink comes as no surprise, but the fact that it’s a delightful homage to her fans the Little Monsters is a new twist. It’s basically a claw—but on Gaga it looks elegant:
Just in time for the creepy vibes of Halloween, she got a red-tinged claw right along the side of her back. It’s a graceful—if chilling—new addition to her already ample collection of ink.
She shared the tattoo on Instagram and gave it the fitting caption: “#Monster4Life.”
Before sharing the finished piece, she also posted some pictures of the tattooing process:
And of the artist, Eric Gonzalez, drawing the piece:
Gonzalez also posted a photo of his pre-sketched tattoo before it became a reality:
Oh and while it may not be permanent, Gaga’s inky eyeliner game in this pic is also a work of art.
Never change Gaga.
