Ariana Grande and her crew got matching tattoos on Sunday as a tribute to the victims of the attack in Manchester.

Grande (and her crew) actually got the "bee tattoos" immediately after Sunday's One Love Manchester show. In fact, the tattoo artists were actually waiting backstage to create the permanent tributes as soon as the show ended.

Why did she get a bee tattoo? Well, the bee has always been a symbol for Manchester's working class. It actually dates back to the city's involvement during the Industrial Revolution. The bee can be seen in designs throughout the city, and in recent weeks it has been used as a tribute to the city's resilience after the May 22 attack.
