Ariana Grande just got a tattoo with her adorable 93-year-old grandma
Many of us would rather die than admit to our grandmothers that we have tattoos. Ariana Grande, on the other hand, gets permanently inked with her grandma.
After winning 'Woman of the Year' at the 'Billboard Women In Music' awards on Thursday night, the singer headed down to a tattoo studio to get a new marking - with her 93-year-old nan, Marjorie Grande, in tow to get a tattoo of her own.
Documenting the whole thing on Instagram Stories, the One Last Time songstress opted for another celestial design, with a delicate image of a large moon and stars inked on her left hand.
Grandma Marjorie went for something a little different, getting her late husband's Frank Grande's nickname - Ciccio - written on the inside of her ring finger by New York–based tattoo artist, Mira Mariah.
The 93-year-old, who lost her partner in 2014, was cool as a cucumber during the process; when asked by her famous granddaughter how she was feeling about her very first inking, she calmly replied, "I feel fine. I've had a little bit more excitement than this."
At one point she even jokingly shaded her granddaughter by telling her: "You don't know what pain is!"
So, is Marjorie the coolest granny out there? I think we can firmly conclude that it's a 'yes'.
People online also agreed with this, with hundreds of taking to social media to express their newfound love for Ariana's relative. "How do we send fan mail to Nonna," wrote Twitter user @itsaudreyx3.
She was joined by @MegSevinth, who tweeted "Please go to
@ArianaGrande 's instagram story right now and watch Nonna get a tattoo omg I love her so much," as well as @alohary who wrote: "goodmorning im still crying @ArianaGrande tell nonna we love her".
It was an emotional night for the 25-year-old, who took to the stage to do a moving speech after winning 'Woman of the Year'.
Admitting that she felt "completely undeserving", she told the audience: "I find it interesting that this has been one of the best years of my career and the worst of my life. A lot of people would look at someone in my position right now as an artist that could be at her peak and think, 'She’s really got her shit together, she's really on it. She’s got it all.' And I do, but as far as my personal life goes, I really have no idea what the f**k I’m doing."
She continued: "It's been a very conflicting one, and I just want to say if you're someone out there who has no idea what this next chapter is going to bring, you’re not alone in that... I look forward to hopefully learning to give some of the love and forgiveness that I've given away so frivolously and easily to men in the past to myself, hopefully, this year. I have everything I've ever dreamt of having, and as of late I've discovered that it's the things I've always had and the people I've always had that still make me the happiest."
It's been a tough year for Ariana, but we can all agreed that she has coped with it with grace and dignity. Here's to the woman of the year!
