The tattoo, in Gaga’s left armpit, reads “Mother Monster,” and she had it done at 3 a.m. in the morning in Manchester, England. On Twitter, she explains that the ink was inspired by the anniversary of the release of her album The Fame Monster. She tweeted to her fans, “feel more complete w/ my new tat, a declaration that I’m always with u, thanks for a killer summer. And for everything.”
She added, “Someone asked me if my mother monster tattoo hurt. I said not as much as is hurt to get here.” She then added the hashtag “#ItsALongWayToTheTopIfYouWannaRockNroll,” which is the title of a song by the legendary rock band AC/DC.
