Ariana Grande got a tattoo of a bumblebee to honour the victims of the Manchester bombing

The bumblebee has been the symbol of Manchester since the 1800s.

IT’S BEEN A hard week for Ariana Grande as this week marked a year since the horrific Manchester Arena bombings in which 22 people lost their lives.

Earlier this week she posted a tribute on her Twitter along with a little bumblebee symbol to mark the anniversary.

The bumblebee has been the symbol of Manchester since the 1800s as back the Manchester had a lot of textiles mills which were often described as ‘hives of activity‘.

After the attacks, the bee became a symbol of unity and defiance and people added a bee to their social media profiles or got bumblebee tattoos.

Ariana has now added another tattoo to her growing collection to honour the victims of the attack by getting a bumblebee tattooed on her neck which she revealed on her Instagram last night.

It’s just one of the many touching tributes she’s made this week including sharing a video of some of her fans in Manchester signing her song ‘No Tears Left to Cry’ which was about the attack.

She is the definition of the word class.
