In January, Céline Dion lost her husband of 21 years following his long battle with cancer, and since then, the singer has paid tribute to the love of her life onstage.
But now she's considering a more enduring way to memorialize René Angélil — in ink.
"Since my husband passed away, they can make the tattoo as his heartbeat," she said in a This or That video interview with Vogue. Dion then mimed the motion of an EKG line, adding, "So, I might have his heartbeat on my body for the rest of my life."
And while that tattoo isn't on her body yet, Angélil is never far from her thoughts — or her heart. The iconic performer visited TODAY last month and opened up about the power she still gets from her partner.
"I feel very strong because, not only that he loved me so much — for many, many lives to come, (but he) gave me three magnificent kids, so much knowledge, stability and confidence," she explained.
The tattoo tribute would be a first for Dion, who has a no-nonsense view on body art in general.
"I've seen so many people that have tattoos when they're young and they get older and the name changes," she joked in the Vogue clip. "You know, it used to be 'Louise' and now it's like, 'Louis.' You are goin' down! It's gravity, baby. It's goin' down."
