Kylie Jenner has a great tattoo idea you'll want to copy

It's sentimental, but not cheesy

Two weeks ago, Kylie Jenner showed off a new small tattoo on the inside of her upper arm. The red ink was indiscernible in her Instagram photo, so we were all left to wonder what it said until now.

Just hours ago, the 18-year-old posted a close-up of the tattoo – a cursive-like font spells out the words "Mary Jo". Kylie also explained its meaning.

"Grandmothers name in my grandfathers handwriting [sic]," she wrote. Mary Jo Shannon is Kris Jenner's mother.

We've seen tattoos of people's names, but it's not often that the tattooed name is in another loved one's handwriting too, making it twice as sentimental. You'll want to keep this idea on file (thanks, Kylie). This isn't the first time Kylie paid tribute to her maternal grandmother. Earlier this month, she debuted her new line of six lipstick shades, one of which is called Mary Jo.
