Kanye West's New Tattoos Might Make You Tear Up

Given Kanye West's ongoing feud with Amber Rose and his comments on Kim Kardashian's dating history, the musician has been grabbing a lot of controversial headlines this month. On Thursday, though, Kim shared Kanye's sentimental side in a picture of his new tattoos. "He got it on his wrists instead. His mothers birthdate and North's birthdate in Roman numerals," Kim tweeted with a snap of the fresh ink.

It's the latest in a handful of times Kanye has paid tribute to his late mom, Donda West, who died of heart disease after undergoing surgery in 2007, and his daughter, North West. Most recently, Kanye delivered a touching performance of "Only One," the song he wrote about them, at the Grammy Awards in early February. In the emotional hit, which features Paul McCartney, Kanye imagines what his mom would tell him about North from heaven: "I talked to God about you. He said he sent you an angel. And look at all that he gave you," he sings. Keep reading for a look at Kanye's sweet ink, and then check out the ultimate celebrity tattoo gallery.
