Lady Gaga gets David Bowie tattoo ahead of Grammys tribute

(CNN)Fame may be fleeting, but Lady Gaga is honoring David Bowie in a way that is very permanent. She went under the needle to get a tattoo of the late rock legend just before performing a tribute to him at this year's 58th annual Grammy Awards.

The 29-year-old singer posted the video of herself getting the portrait on Snapchat, and it has since been shared by fans across the Internet. It shows tattoo artist Mark Mahoney recreating the cover of the famous Bowie album Aladdin Sane, but with a star over Bowie's left eyelid.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter conducted before Bowie's death last month, Lady Gaga said: "When I fell in love with David Bowie, when I was living on the Lower East Side, I always felt that his glamour was something he was using to express a message to people that was very healing for their souls."
