On Monday, Lady Gaga shared an Instagram photo of her new tattoo: her late aunt's signature on the inside of her arm. She also wrote that her father got a matching one, "with an angel on his shoulder."

Got Joanne tattooed on my arm in her actual signature. My dad got one too. With an angel on his shoulder.

Gaga's latest album, Joanne, is also dedicated to her late aunt, a poet and painter who's obviously had a massive influence on the pop star.

This isn't the first or even second time Gaga's honored her aunt. According to Billboard, one of Joanne's poems appeared on her first album. She's also said that her career is partly an attempt to "finish [Joanne's] business" as an artist.

Sadly, Gaga never met her inspiration. Joanne passed away 12 years before she was born.

But as far as completing her work as an artist, no one can deny Gaga's had incredible success. And this is months before she outdoes herself at this year's Superbowl.
