Actress Riley Keough, the daughter of Lisa Marie Presley, has chosen an interesting and heartwarming way of honoring her late brother, Benjamin Keough, who passed away on July 12, at the age of 27.

The actress debuted a photo of her new tattoo, right above her collarbone, on her Instagram story. It read, “Benjamin Storm,” the late Benjamin’s first name and middle name, in stunning cursive writing.

In the tattoo shot, Riley lifted the clear bandaging on her fresh body art, to show the beautiful cursive letters over her collarbone. The 31-year-old grieving sister added a red heart emoji to the picture.

She also shared a picture of Benjamin’s tattoo in the same place where she got hers. His tattoo read “Riley.” Days after his death, she posted a slideshow of some pictures of her with her brother, heartbroken and unsure of how to move on. Riley's touching tribute read:

"Mornings are the hardest. I forget you’re gone. I can’t cry because of the fear that I will never stop. A pain that’s new to me."

The mourning actress referred to her brother as an angel, saying that was the closest word she could find to describe Benjamin. Keough added that Benjamin was also a wild man, an intellectual, and her twin soul and protector.

The family held a private emotional ceremony after the devastating tragedy struck.
