In the year since the tragic helicopter crash took the lives of 9 people including Kobe and Gianna Bryant, Vanessa has gotten multiple tattoos paying tribute to her family. She's added another to the collection, and this time she was joined by her daughter Natalia. 

Nikko Hurtado, who had previously tattooed messages from Gianna and Kobe on Vanessa, tattooed both Bryants on Tuesday. Vanessa had Gianna's nickname, Mambacita, a reference to her father's nickname, tattooed on her wrist. 

Natalia, who had just recently turned 18 and (as far as Inked knows) had never been tattooed before, grabbed a couple of pieces from Hurtado. She had the word "Muse" tattooed on the inside of one of her fingers. "Muse," if you recall, was the name of a documentary about her father. Natalia also had another tattoo added to her wrist, but as of yet we haven't gotten a peek at what it is. 

Getting a tattoo together is a fantastic way for a mother and daughter to bond, particularly while simultaneously grieving.
