Lady Gaga is debuting some ink.

Hours before her anticipated GRAMMY performance with Metallica, the 30-year-old singer posted a photo of what looks to be a brand new tattoo.

The black-and-white snap features a giant moth on Gaga’s back, complete with a skull head, prompting speculation that she will be joining the metal band onstage for their 2016 song, “Moth Into Flame.”

“The Moth & Metallica,” Gaga captioned the topless photo on Sunday afternoon with a fire emoji, alongside the hashtags “#ink,” “#tattoo,” “#metal,” “#MetalliGa” and “#grammys.”

It’s entirely possible that the ink is only temporary, but considering Gaga’s excitement over the upcoming performance, we wouldn’t put it past her to have her Metallica love permanently etched on her body.

On Saturday, she shared a photo with the iconic rockers, while dressed in a fishnet shirt, tights, thigh-high black boots and a Metallica tank.

“Gonna listen to Metallica all day and party with my friends and then play with them at the Grammy’s,” she wrote.

Earlier in the week, the collaboration was confirmed after a Gaga fan site tweeted a snippet of a GRAMMYs promo clip touting the special performance.

The GRAMMYs air live coast-to-coast at 5 p.m. PT/8 p.m. ET Sunday on CBS.

It’s been a crazy week for Gaga, who slayed her 13-minute Super Bowl halftime performance last week in Houston. Watch the highlights below.
