A new day, a new tattoo!

Inked princess Paris Jackson debuted yet another tatt honoring her late father, King of Pop Michael Jackson, this one features the word "Applehead" written on her foot.

The 19-year-old, who just landed her first Vogue cover, posted the Instagram image, which also shows some of her other works of body art, along with the caption, "With every step i take, you lift my foot and guide me forward. Love you."

The term "Applehead" is a term of endearment that the "Billie Jean" singer was known for using with his loved ones.

These are not the first pieces of body art for either. Paris previously told Rolling Stone she has 50 tattoos, this one being the 10th in memory of her famous father. One she had inked last year reads "Queen of My Heart" in the late pop star's handwriting.

"He's brought me nothing but joy," she told the magazine. "So why not have constant reminders of joy?"

But her life has not all been joy. In 2016, the teen opened up about her struggles on Instagram in a post that highlighted how her ink helped her find meaning in the darkest of times.

"The craftsmanship of tattoos will always be a controversy. Some people like them, some people absolutely hate them. I appreciate art, I always have, especially when that art means something to me."

She continued, "I don't see a dark past anymore. My scars and past of self-hatred have been covered by loving marks, creativity, ingenuity and depth. Sure, I will always carry my past with me, but I see ink as a way of changing for the better, always improving. They represent strength for me."

Paris also explained how when she looks in the mirror she sees "a fighter" looking back at her.

"I'll always keep fighting and encouraging others to stay strong. We all go through hell every now and then but it makes us the warriors of love we were meant to be."

The teen concluded with one poignant message to her fans: "To anyone struggling, it gets better. You're not alone."
