AceShowbiz - No parties, no boozes. Ariana Grande has her own way to celebrate her milestone after being honored with Billboard's Woman of the Year Award on Thursday night, December 6. A tattoo lover, the "Thank U, Next" songstress gets a new tat to celebrate her new achievement, but this time, she isn't the only one getting a new ink.
The "God Is a Woman" hitmaker brought her 93-year-old grandmother, Marjorie Grande, to have her first tattoo. The singer documented the rare moment on Instagram Stories. One videos saw her Nonna calmly getting her hand tattooed.
When asked how was she feeling, Nonna confidently replied, "I feel fine," while laughing at the pain. "I've had a little bit more excitement than this." Marjorie opted to pay tribute to her late husband Frank Grande for her first tattoo. She got "Ciccio", Frank's nickname, tattoed on her her left ring finger.
They were also joined by other family members, including Joan Grande and Frankie Grande.
As for Ariana, she added some new inks to her collection. The singer flaunted on Instagram her new ink that featured a crescent moon beside stars on the top of her left hand. Ariana's go-to tattoo artist Mira Mariah also took to social media to share a snap of her work on the singer while writing, "for the woman of the year."
Ariana and her grandmother got the inks hours after the former took the stage in New York City to accept her Woman of the Year title which was presented by Patti LaBelle. She got emotional during her acceptance speech as she said that "this has been one of the best years in my career and one of like the worst years in my life." She then went on explaining how interesting it was to receive the award as she felt people who was presented with the honor was "an artist that could be at her peak, reaching her you know, whatever."
She concluded her speech, "I have everything I've ever dreams of having, and as of late I've discovered that it's the things I've always had and the people I've always had that still make me the happiest."
