The new tat doesn’t come as a surprise to Gaga fans, with the 29-year-old often vocalising her affection towards Bowie. Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Gaga credits him as the influence behind her music career.

"When I fell in love with David Bowie, when I was living on the Lower East Side, I always felt that his glamor was something he was using to express a message to people that was very healing for their souls. He is a true, true artist and I don't know if I ever went, 'Oh, I'm going to be that way like this,' or if I arrived upon it slowly, realizing it was my calling and that's what drew me to him."
