Paris Jackson has got a tattoo in memory of her father Michael Jackson.

The aspiring singer - who turned 18 on Sunday - is thrilled with her permanent tribute to the late King of Pop, after having the words 'Queen of My Heart', in her father's handwriting, etched onto her left wrist by Justin Lewis at Timeless Tattoo 738 in Los Angeles.

Alongside a photograph of her new ink, she wrote on Instagram: "Queen of My Heart" in his handwriting. To everyone else he was the King of Pop. To me, well, he was the king of my heart. Thank you @dermagrapink, you're a legend [@austinbrown] (sic)"

The tattoo artist was pleased to welcome Paris, who was accompanied by her cousin Austin Brown, into his studio for the "sweet" piece of work.


Alongside a picture of himself, Paris and Austin, he captioned a photo on Instagram: "Paris Michael Jackson got her tattoo today, letters from her father, so sweet. #parisjackson and Austin Brown her cousin. (sic)"

Paris - who is the daughter of Debbie Rowe - had long spoken of her desire to have a tattoo tribute to her father, who was born on August 29, 1958.
