Ingrid Michaelson got a tattoo before her show in Austin

Ingrid Michaelson is in town, and everybody knows there’s only one way to spend a rainy Thursday afternoon before playing a show at Stubb’s: Mosey on down the street and get tatted up at True Blue, of course.

The singer, in town on her “Hell No” tour, got a tattoo of a firefly in memory of her mother, Elizabeth Egbert. Egbert was a sculptor and the executive director of the Staten Island Museum before she died in August 2014 after a lengthy battle with cancer.

She tweeted the photo of her new ink, writing, “In memory of mama who I see in the fireflies.” It’s a reference to lyrics in her song “Light Me Up” — “And I want to see you with my eyes / But I see you in the fireflies / And how extraordinary is that.”

It’s not the first time Michaelson has gotten a pre-show tattoo for her mom. She got one in November 2014 before a show in Calofrnia, according to her Instagram.

What a sweet tribute.
