Rob Kardashian debuts new work on his touching arm tattoo of his late father Robert Kardashian
His sister Kim Kardashian was moved to tears after her husband Kanye West presented her with a hologram of her late father for her 40th birthday.
And now her brother Rob Kardashian has gotten more work done a tattoo of his father Robert Kardashian to keep his memory alive.
The 33-year-old Keeping Up With The Kardashians star shared the new ink on Instagram on Saturday.
Paying tribute: Rob Kardashian got a tattoo of his late father Robert Kardashian
Rob’s tattoo feature’s a life-like drawing of his father, who seems to be emerging from a veil of billowing clouds and light beams.
There’s also an angelic wing over his head from another tattoo that adds to the heavenly imagery.
The face appears to be a somewhat younger version of Kardashian than was pictured in the 1990s and 2000s, though he still has the identifiable shock of white hair over his forehead.
‘Thank You brother!!’ he wrote while tagging the tattoo artist Mister Cartoon.
Touched up: Rob already had his father’s face tattooed years earlier, but he seems to have added new heavenly clouds around the design; pictured with the tattoo in 2016
Media fixture: Robert Kardashian is best known for his work on O. J. Simpson’s defense team in the trial for the murder of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman; shown in 1994
The tattoo doesn’t appear to be completely new, as older photos show Rob with the basic outline of his father’s face.
However, the more heavenly add-ons seem to be new, and the son of Kris Jenner appeared to have some ink smeared on his hand, indicating the picture was taken just after he got the tattoo touched up.
The elder Kardashian is best known for his long-time friendship with O. J. Simpson, going back to their days at the University of Southern California in the late 1960s.
Simpson would go on to serve as the best man at his wedding to Kris Jenner (née Houghton) in 1978.
Kardashian was entangled in Simpson’s trial for the murder of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald Goldman when he was seen carrying a garment bag belonging to the former football star that may have contained key evidence.
Though the lawyer’s law license had expired prior to the trial, he reactivated it and joined Simpson’s defense team, which prevented him from being forced to testify as to the contents of the garment bag or Simpson’s abusive history with Brown.
Kardashian later publicly expressed doubts about Simpson’s innocence, and the two men broke off communications following the athlete’s acquittal.
Happy birthday to you: Rob’s sister Kim shared a new video of herself tearing up at a hologram of her late father from her controversial 40th birthday celebrations
Beyond the grave: They watched as a hologram appeared of Robert Kardashian Sr., telling Kim he was ‘very proud’ of her. The hologram was a gift from her husband Kanye West
Rob touched up his tribute to his father following his sister Kim’s Instagram posts from Thursday that gave a closer look at her reactions to a hologram of her father.
The computerized image showed a life-like version of her father who told her he was ‘very proud’ of her.
Kim previously shared video of the hologram, which her husband Kanye West had made, but new footage of her and her family showed her bursting into tears at the moving display.
Other social media users weren’t as compelled by it, and some found the posthumous display tasteless or creepy.
The hologram was debuted during her 40th birthday trip with family and friends to a private island in French Polynesia that had been owned by the late acting legend Marlon Brando.
So proud: Rob, who shares the four-year-old with ex Blac Chyna, wrote how ‘proud’ he is of his daughter and shared a few of his favorite photos of her to Instagram earlier this week
Rob focused on other family earlier this week when he celebrated his daughter Dream Kardashian’s fourth birthday.
He shared an adorable photo of his daughter, whom he shares with his ex Blac Chyna, in a blue and white princess dress and fierce tiger face paint.
‘Happy Birthday to my baby girl!! I am so Proud of the sweet and smart girl that you are! Thank You for bringing so much Happiness to my Life 🙂 Daddy Loves You,’ he captioned the loving post.
He and the rest of his family threw a Disney-themed birthday party for Dream, with his sister Kourtney dressed as the fairy godmother from Cinderella, while Kris styled herself as Snow White and Kourtney’s daughter Penelope Disick was Belle from Beauty And The Beast.
