Bindi Irwin has debut a new tattoo which pays tribute to her late father, Steve Irwin, and her 9-month-old daughter, Gracie Warrior.
Bindi shared the tattoo on Instagram on Thursday and explained the heartfelt meaning behind the new addition that reads “Graceful warrior” on her forearm.
“The words I spoke to our daughter as I held her for the first time in my arms were, ‘My graceful warrior’. That’s how her name was born,” she started the touching caption.
“This is my dad’s handwriting to keep him with me, always. Our dear alligator, Daisy, is next to these words to represent our conservation work as Wildlife Warriors. And my beautiful wedding ring in bloom,” she continued.
“Validation every day of the three most important things in my life: family, purpose and unconditional love. Since Grace’s breastfeeding journey ended, now felt like the perfect time for this empowering artwork,” she concluded the post.
In the comments, Bindi also thanked Kelly McQuirk, an Australia-based tattoo artist, who designed the tattoo for her. “So blessed to be able to create such heartfelt and important pieces for @bindisueirwin,” McQuirk captioned a repost of Bindi’s post on her Instagram story. “Your kindness and compassion are out of this world. Adore you.”
