Michael Jackson may have passed away six years ago, but he was still a part of his daughter Paris' birthday celebrations Sunday.

Paris revealed on Instagram that she got a tattoo on her birthday with her dad's nickname for her.

The new art, by Justin Lewis at Timeless Tattoo 738 in Los Angeles, features the words "Queen of My Heart" inked on her left wrist in Michael's handwriting.

"To everyone else he was the King of Pop," Jackson captioned the Instagrampicture she shared Tuesday. "To me, well, he was the king of my heart."

Lewis uploaded his own Instagram image with Jackson and her cousin, Austin Brown, who accompanied the "King of Pop's" second child on her birthday trip. "Paris Michael Jackson got her tattoo today, letters from her father, so sweet," Lewis wrote.

Jackson first expressed her wish to honor her father, who died of a propofol overdose at age 50 in 2009, back in 2012.

"I kinda want to get August XXIX tatted on my back," Jackson, then 14 years old, tweeted. The original idea for the tattoo referenced Michael's birthday, Aug. 29, 1958.
