Vanessa Bryant is honoring her family in a permanent way. On Tuesday, the mom showed off a very meaningful new tattoo on her foot, featuring her late husband Kobe Bryant’s name as well as those of their daughters. The design includes the names Kobe, Vanessa, Natalia, Gianna, Bianka and Capri in a line on the outside of her foot, underneath her ankle.
In the caption, Vanessa thanked tattoo artist Mister Cartoon, who also inked rapper Snoop Dogg with an enormous tribute to the Los Angeles Lakers on his forearm after the team won the NBA Finals against the Miami Heat last week. Vanessa congratulated the team for its 17th championship win, writing, “Go Lakers! Wish Kobe and Gigi were here to see this.”
“Congratulations Uncle P! Congratulations @lakers Kobe was right, RP!” she wrote, referencing Lakers General Manager Rob Pelinka. “Stay the course – blockout the noise.” Other celebrities who have gotten tattoos in tribute to the late legend and his daughter Gianna include LeBron James, Anthony Davis,
Odell Beckham Jr. and more. Kobe Bryant’s sister, Sharia Washington, inked an infinity-symbol black mamba tattoo with her brother and niece Gianna’s jersey numbers on her shoulder.
