Vanessa Bryant has revealed she got two tattoos to honor her late husband, Kobe Bryant, and daughter, Gianna, who died in a helicopter crash earlier this year.

Vanessa took to Instagram to showcase her tattoos, which she actually had done in February.


Tattoo artist Nikko Hurtado re-shared videos of Vanessa (whose Instagram account is private) getting two tattoos – one running down her lower neck and shoulder in honor of Kobe and a smaller tattoo on her wrist in honor of daughter, Gianna.


“Truly honored by friend,” Nikko captioned the reshared video, marking it with the hashtag “#ripkobeandgianna.”

“I wanted my boo boo’s @kobebryant sweet message transferred on me,” Vanessa captioned the original video of Nikko tattooing sentimental wording on her neck and shoulder. “@nikkohurtado came through for me. Thank you! #inked #messagetransfer #BooBoo #throwback #tattooinmyhallway”


According to People, Vanessa isn’t the only one to get a tattoo in honor of Kobe. His fellow Los Angeles Lakers players, Anthony Davis and LeBron James, also received tattoos in remembrance of the NBA star.
