Katy Perry gets matching tattoo with a fan

Katy Perry really loves her fans.

The singer, 34, released her new single “Never Really Over” on Wednesday and celebrated with a permanent reminder of the moment. Not only did Perry mark the release of the song with a tattoo, she got a matching design with one lucky fan at the YouTube Music & Katy Perry Fan Experience at YouTube Space LA.

“@katyperry thank u for being the most adorable & lovely person of the world,” the fan, Matheus Rodrigues, captioned photos with the pop star. He also revealed that it was his first tattoo ever.

Perry and Rodrigues each got one half of a broken heart tattooed on the outside of their hands; Perry’s half had the word “miss” written in script on the inside while her fan’s read “you.”

The broken heart is part of the design for the new single, which also features a yin and yang symbol and a sun.

This is hardly the first time that Perry has commemorated an album or song release with permanent ink. In fact, she has a vast tattoo collection that she adds to at the end of every musical tour. She has a strawberry, a peppermint swirl, a cartoon rainbow triangle and a Saturn eye for her One of the Boys, California Girls, Prism and Witness tours. She also has the roman numerals XLIX tattooed on her finger to commemorate her 2015 Super Bowl performance.

Perry typically flies out the celebrity tattoo artist known as Bang Bang at the end of every tour for weeks, so that he can design an idea that defines the era of music and the tour. He then inks tour crew members, dancers and production team members with the matching design. At the completion of the “Witness” tour, 45 people had identical tattoos.
