Following Sunday’s One Love benefit concert in Manchester, Ariana Grande and the crew of her Dangerous Woman tour have gotten some new ink in honour of the city.
As The Sun reports, Grande and her team were joined backstage after the concert — which, to date, has raised nearly $13 million for the Red Cross — by a team of local tattoo artists, who created tattoos of bees, the symbol of Manchester.
Getting inked capped off an emotional day for the singer, who returned to the city after the devastating terror attack at her May 22 show in Manchester, which left 22 dead and left dozens more injured.
“That was the hardest thing ever,” Grande reportedly told friends after the concert ended. “I just need to go home now.”
According to Grande’s brother, former “Big Brother” contestant Frankie Grande was awestruck at his sister’s composure throughout the concert.
“She seems calm out there because that’s her in her element. That’s what she was born to do,” said Grande. “She is strong, so much stronger than anyone thought. She’s strong for her fans.”
Grande and her crew aren’t the only ones who are standing with Manchester by getting bee tattoos, judging from these images shared on Twitter:
