Ariana Grande and her team have now got tattoos of the Manchester bee, following the terrorist attack at Manchester Arena last month.

Many members of the public got tattoos of the bee, which is a symbol of Manchester's proud industrial past, following the attack in solidarity with victims.

Each tattoo cost £50 and proceeds have gone to the families of those killed in the attack carried out after Grande's gig on May 22.

The bee became synonymous with Manchester in the 1800s because the city's prolific textile mills were described as “hives of activity.”

Manchester Ink gave Grande and her Dangerous Woman tour team the bee tattoos backstage at the tribute concert on Sunday (June 4), according to The Telegraph.

The concert, named One Love Manchester, was shown on television and was watched by more than 14 million viewers.

During the event, the artist gave an emotional performance of the song One Last Time and it is likely that it could reach number one in the charts this week.
