Lady Gaga's New Tattoo Is A Lovely Monstrosity

New ink for Mother Monster.

Lady Gaga is into tattoos -- we already know this.

She once got inked live at a perfume launch. Then there was the time back in 2010 when she commemorated the release of Born This Way with a unicorn tattoo. After that, came the Artpop tattoo.

Earlier this summer, she even honored her brand-new collaborator Tony Bennett by getting a trumpet tattoo prior to the release of their joint record Cheek To Cheek, which debuted at No. 1.

So the news that she's got another piece of ink comes as no surprise, but the fact that it's a delightful homage to her fans the Little Monsters is a new twist. It's basically a claw, but on Gaga it looks elegant:

Just in time for the creepy vibes of Halloween, she got a red-tinged claw right along the side of her back. It's a graceful—if chilling—new addition to her already ample collection of ink.

She shared the tattoo on Instagram and gave it the fitting caption: "#Monster4Life."

Before sharing the finished piece, she also posted some pictures of the tattooing process:

And of the artist, Eric Gonzalez, drawing the piece:

Gonzalez also posted a photo of his pre-sketched tattoo before it became a reality:

Oh and while it may not be permanent, Gaga's inky eyeliner game in this pic is also a work of art.

Never change, Gaga.
