Aug 31 2018 - 10:05am

Ariana Grande [1] has added another tattoo full of special meaning to her growing collection [2]: a sweet tribute to Hayao Miyazaki's 2001 film Spirited Away. The 25-year-old singer is known for her many tiny tattoos, some of which match fiancé Pete Davidson's [3], but this anime art is one of her biggest additions yet.

Grande recently showed off her adorable new ink, a depiction of the film's main character, Chihiro, on her forearm. A dedicated fan of Miyazaki's films, Grande told fans the permanent significance behind Chihiro in a now-expired Instagram Story. According to Grande, this character sheds her own fears throughout the film and matures into a "courageous, quick-witted, and reliable girl." It makes sense that Grande would resonate with the movie's brave heroine. Check out more snaps of Grande's new ink ahead — she clearly loves this newest addition.
