Ariana Grande And Her Tour Crew ‘Honour Manchester Bombing Victims With Bee Tattoos’


Ariana Grande and her tour crew have honoured the victims of the Manchester bombing by getting tattoos of the city’s bee symbol, according to reports.

The singer and her ‘Dangerous Woman’ tour crew were joined by artists from Manchester Ink backstage after Sunday’s One Love Manchester concert.

The bee is a symbol of Manchester’s industrial past. Following last month’s terrorist attack at Ariana’s gig at the Manchester Arena, people across the city got bee tattoos to show their solidarity with the victims.

Manchester tattoo artists then launched the Manchester tattoo fundraiser, where bee tattoos would be done for £50, with proceeds going to the families of victims of the attack.
