Lady Gaga has paid tribute to the late David Bowie with an awesome new tattoo, but tattoos and Bowie aren't her only passion.

It's almost common knowledge by now that Lady Gaga paid an 8-minute long tribute to the late David Bowie at the Grammy Awards this year, but the singer did more than that. The result was an awesome tribute tattoo. Believed to be her 18th tattoo the design is that of the iconic album cover from Aladdin Sane.

Gaga revealed the tattoo as it was in progress on her Snapchat.

The tattoo was done by legendary tattoo artist Mark Mahoney at his tattoo shop Shamrock Social Club in West Hollywood, a hotspot for celebrities looking to get some ink. Well accustomed to a tattoo machine Gaga looked relaxed in the video as the portrait took shape on her left side.
