You gotta hand it to Lady Gaga – she never misses a trick.

The singer caused a stir ahead of the Grammy Awards by having a tattoo etched on her body in memory of her late musical hero David Bowie.

Gaga, 29, (seen above sporting a previous tattoo on her arm) is due to pay tribute to Bowie at the star-studded awards tonight at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

So who better to brighten up her body than celeb ink king Mark Mahoney? Judging from a sneak preview on Twitter, Gaga’s new etching appears to be a recreation of the cover of Bowie’s classic album, Aladdin Sane.


Gaga recently told The Hollywood Reporter: ”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.”

Meanwhile, here at Ginger Clam we’re thinking of celebrating the Grammys by having an image of Justin Bieber tattooed onto our beef curtains!
