Just like the memories in her heart, Vanessa Bryant will now be able to carry the words of her late husband and daughter on her skin forever. On Wednesday, she revealed that a pair of tattoos from Nikko Hurtado, each one an inscription of a message from one of her loved ones. 

It's been almost six months since Kobe Bryant, Gianna Bryant and seven others died in a tragic helicopter crash. Vanessa was joined in grief by legions of fans who mourned the untimely passing of the NBA legend, with many getting tattoo tributes to both Kobe and Gianna. 

Vanessa, who has been very open about her grieving process on social media, had a message from Gianna tattooed onto her wrist in February. 

Hurtado also tattooed a message from Kobe onto Vanessa's neck and shoulder. 

Vanessa's pair of tattoos are a beautiful way to hold on to the memory of her loved ones. Hopefully, the tattoos will help bring some peace to her as she grieves their tragic loss.
