Vanessa Bryant is paying an incredible tribute to her daughter Gianna Bryant.
On Tuesday, March 23, Vanessa shared a series of Instagram posts showing off the new tattoo on her upper right arm that reads, "Mambacita." The artwork features a heart to dot the "i" and a butterfly at the end of the final "a."
Bryant later then posted a video of her 18-year-old daughter Natalia getting a tattoo of the word “muse” inside of her right middle finger as well as an unidentified wrist tattoo, both done by tattoo artist Nikko Hurtado.
This was Gianna's nickname and a play on dad Lakers legend Kobe Bryant's "Black Mamba" name. Gianna, herself an avid basketball player, was 13 when she and Kobe were among the nine individuals who died in a tragic helicopter crash on Jan. 26, 2020.
