If you’re still not over Lady Gaga’s killer performance at the Super Bowl last weekend, you may want to buckle up for what’s next. The star is sharing the Grammys stage with Metallica, and judging by the new ink she’s sporting to commemorate the duet, it’s going to be another spectacle. On Instagram, Gaga debuted a ginormous new tattoo (which we’re assuming is temporary, but we wouldn’t be mad if it weren’t) on Instagram of a moth with the face of a skull that runs across her entire back. “Moth into Flame” is Metallica’s latest single.

She walked the red carpet in an outfit that showed off her new ink, wearing a long-sleeve, backless shrunken crop top with tiny short shorts, fishnet stockings and thigh-high platform boots.

This wouldn’t be her first music-related tattoo. After her performance dedicated to David Bowie at last year’s Grammys, Gaga got a tattoo of Bowie’s Aladdin Sane album cover.

Then, to honor her latest album and aunt, Joanne, (whom the album is named after) the singer and her father got matching tattoos of the word “Joanne.”

To prep for her performance tonight, she said on Instagram that she was listening to Metallica “all day,” then presumably playing their music while she was partying with friends that night.
