Rihanna is honoring her late grandmother, Clara “Dolly” Braithwaite – not with a song – but with a giant tattoo.

The Grammy award winner, 24, who performed at Sunday’s Paralympics Closing Ceremony in London, took to Instagram to reveal her latest body art.

“Goddess Isis–Complete Woman– Model for future generations – #GRANGRANDOLLY – always in and on my heart #1love,” Rihanna wrote as she shared the risqué photo with her 2,343,274 followers.

The image – tattooed beneath the singer’s breasts – depicts the Egyptian goddess Isis kneeling with her wings spread.

Rihanna also shared another image, a diptych of her kissing her late grandmother split with the tattoo.

Braithwaite, who reportedly died of cancer in the early hours of July 1, was a prominent figure in the singer’s life.
