Luke Perry's daughter has paid tribute to her late dad with a symbolic tattoo.

Sophie Perry, 18, answered fans' random questions on her Instagram Story on Wednesday and during the session, she revealed her new ink: a wild mushroom tattooed on her wrist.

"The mushroom is symbolic of my dad," she said, noting a recent Instagram post she had made, in which she had confirmed that the late Beverly Hills, 90210 alum and Riverdale actor was buried in an eco-friendly biodegradable suit made partially of fungus, per his wishes.

The outfit, called an Infinity Burial Suit, is said to "aid in decomposition, work to neutralize toxins found in the body and transfer nutrients to plant life."

During the fan Q&A session, Sophie, who is currently in Malawi doing volunteer work, was asked about a favorite memory of her father that is not too personal to share.

"When I was kid, we'd go to the Santa Monica Pier and ride the Sea Dragon and when I was scared, he would sing 'A Whole New World' from Aladdin to me," she said.

When asked if she misses her dad, she wrote, "Every moment of every day. I will NEVER not miss him."
