This is one of many visual mementos Jackson has created for her father. She also sports several tattoos that pay homage to him. One depicting his eyes is a reference to the album artwork from Dangerous. Another reads "Queen of My Heart," which is what he called her. In the photo she shared of the tatt, she called him "the king of my heart."
"Today I can look at my inner forearms and see art that has meaning for me," she wrote on Instagram Tuesday. "I don't see a dark past anymore."
the craftsmanship of tattoos will always be a controversy. some people like them, some people absolutely hate them. i appreciate art, i always have. especially when that art means something to me. today i can look at my inner forearms and see art that has meaning for me, i don't see a dark past anymore. my scars and past of self-hatred have been covered by loving marks, creativity, ingenuity.. and depth. sure i will always carry my past with me, but i see ink as a way of changing for the better, always improving. they represent strength for me. i look back at my old self and then i look in the mirror, and i see a fighter looking back at me. i'll always keep fighting, and encouraging others to stay strong. we all go through hell every now and then but it makes us the warriors of love we were meant to be. so to anyone struggling, it gets better. you're not alone.
Could the face swap be serving the same purpose? In its own creepy way, it definitely shows her love for her dad.
