Lady Gaga Gets David Bowie Tattoo Ahead of Grammys Tribute

In Defense of Lady Gaga's 'ARTPOP'
Two years later, we look back on Gaga's most difficult era.

She even shared the event on Snapchat.

Lady Gaga got David Bowie’s face tattooed on her rib cage ahead of her Grammy Awards tribute to the legendary musician. She shared a series of Snapchat videos on Saturday (Feb. 13, 2016), which showed tattooist Mark Mahoney add to her collection of tattoos. It seems as though Gaga found a very permanent way to pay tribute to Bowie, who passed away last month.

The image is from the cover of his Aladdin Sane album from 1973, on which he has a large lightening bolt painted across his face. In the videos, we also see the tattoo artist carefully stencilling the image, while the singer patiently waits for it to be tattooed on her side.

“This is the image that changed my life,” she captioned one of the snaps.
