Kelly Osbourne Debuts New Head Tattoo In Solidarity With Orlando Victims

Well, that’s one way to do it.

Kelly Osbourne is showing her solidarity with the LGBT community in a permanent way.

Following the mass shooting early Sunday morning at a queer nightclub in Orlando, Florida, many celebrities have expressed an outpouring of grief and shock, commemorating the victims with powerful tributes and tearful pleas

But Osbourne took it one step further, tattooing the word "solidarity" on the side of her head on Tuesday to pay respect to all those touched by the tragic events. 

"Individually, we have rights and unique gifts. Together, we have strength and powerful harmony," she wrote on Instagram. "I have wanted to get this tattoo for a long time. The tragedy in Orlando devastated me and reminded me that every moment of our lives is precious. Every human is precious."

Osbourne has been a lifelong friend and ally to the LGBTQ community, partnering with organizations like The Trevor Project and Cyndi Lauper's True Colors Fund to highlight the discrimination faced by queer people across the country. 

"Love hard. Live gracefully, authentically and with conviction, respect, purpose and compassion," she continued. "Together we achieve what is impossible to those who stand alone. Those of us who embrace and respect freedom stand together, progress together, celebrate together and grieve together. You are not alone."

In the wake of the shooting, Osbourne debuted a first draft of the tattoo, while holding a sign sending a message of love to the victims of the attack.

Her new tattoo pairs well with Osbourne's other head tattoo, featuring the word "stories," which she says her mother is not a fan of. 

"All moms want their daughters to be perfect," she told ABC News. "Having a tattoo on the side of your head and a mohawk isn’t exactly every mother’s dream and I can understand that."
