Just last month, Prince sat for an interview on "Good Morning America." He talked about working behind the scenes via his own company called King's Son productions.
"So, it's a form of motivation because my name is Prince, but for all intents and purposes I am the king's son and working to get my own epithet," he further explained, People reported. Meanwhile, Prince's sister, Paris, also got a tattoo in 2016 to achieve the same goal of Prince, to honor their father.
She took to Instagram during that time to post a tattoo of her new ink that showed the words "Queen of My Heart" with his own handwriting. The statement came from a letter Michael wrote to his daughter when she was younger.
Prince and Paris also got matching tattoos and they revealed it on Sunday. It showed the Chinese symbol for Yin and Yang. Paris revealed it on her Instagram page.
Michael died from cardiac arrest in June of 2009 and was only 50 years old. Prince was only 12 while Paris was 11. Their youngest sibling, Blanket, who remained out of the public eye, was only seven years old and is now 15.
This was not the first time Prince paid tribute to his father. Last year, on what was supposed to be the 58th birthday of the late King of Pop, he shared a sonnet on his Instagram account for his father.
