Ariana Grande shares photo of tattoo honouring Manchester

The singer shared a photo of her ink two days after the first anniversary of the terror attack at Manchester Arena

Ariana Grande has shared a photo of her tattoo honouring Manchester.

The pop star’s concert at Manchester Arena last May was the site of a terror attack. A suicide bomber detonated a homemade bomb as people were leaving the show, killing 22 and injuring 59. 

Tuesday (May 22) marked the one-year anniversary of the attack and now Grande has shared a photo on Twitter of her tattoo dedicated to the victims, survivors, and citizens of Manchester. The ink is in the form of a worker bee, which has long been a symbol of the city and gained popularity in the wake of the attack, appearing on banners, posters, and items sold to raise money for victims.

The tattoo is behind Grande’s left ear. The black-and-white photo she shared was captioned: “Forever.” See the photo above.

An anniversary service was held in Manchester on Tuesday to remember those who were killed, injured and affected by the attack. Noel Gallagher and Johnny Marr both sent video tributes to be played at the service held in the city’s Albert Square.

“This is Noel Gallagher, and I am here on behalf of Manchester Together In One Voice,” the former Oasis member said in his clip. “I am going to introduce you to my song ‘Don’t Look Back In Anger’. If you look closely, I shall be miming along with you. Thank you very much.”

In London, Liam Gallagher and former Oasis bandmate Bonehead also paid tribute to the victims of the attack as the former supported the Rolling Stones. They dedicated ‘Live Forever’ to the city.
