Lady Gaga added to her already impressive collection of body art with a tattoo honoring David Bowie, and she documented the whole thing on Snapchat!

The 29-year-old singer posted several videos and photos as she was getting inked at Shamrock Social Club in the wee hours of Sunday morning. The ink will literally be fresh for her GRAMMYs performance on Monday. She'll be paying tribute to Bowie, who died on Jan. 10 at age 69 after a battle with cancer.

The tattoo, inked on the "Born This Way" singer's rib-cage, features Bowie's face as it appeared on the cover of his 1973 album, Aladdin Sane.

One snap revealed the freshly drawn outline of the tattoo on Gaga's body alongside the caption, "This was the image that changed my life."


Another showed tattoo artist Mark Mahoney at work on Mother Monster in his studio in West Hollywood, California.

"Hail Mary full of grace Saint Bowie," she titled the image. It's unclear whether she was praising the recently deceased singer or praying to him for relief, as the rib cage is known to be a particularly sensitive spot to get tattooed. 


It was quite the impressive Snapchat share, as Gaga is new to the social media app. She joined just before her Super Bowl appearance on Feb. 7 and has been snapping up a storm ever since.

The first hint that the pop star was getting inked came on Instagram, however, as she shared a black-and-white photo of a young Bowie on Saturday. 

Unlike Snapchat, tattoos are not new to Gaga. She has many others including a trumpet, roses and a 'monster claw' that still gives us bad dreams.
