Sharia Washington, who is one of Kobe Bryant's sisters, is honoring her late brother and niece, Gianna. In an Instagram post, Washington revealed that he recently got a tattoo on her left shoulder with a No. 24 and No. 2 for Kobe and Gianna.
The two numbers are also surrounded by a snake, which alludes to Bryant's "Black Mamba" persona.Washington kept her caption simple by just thanking the tattoo artist.
In addition, Bryant's widow, Vanessa, also shared a photo of Washington's tattoo on her Instagram account.
Bryant, his 13-year old daughter Gianna, and seven others were tragically killed when the helicopter that they were traveling in crashed into a hillside in Calabasas, California. The group was on its way to a basketball tournament at the Mamba sports Academy.
Her tattoo comes just days after a public memorial service was held at Staples Center with several members of the basketball community paying tribute, including Michael Jordan, Shaquille O'Neal, and current Lakers GM Rob Pelinka.
