A portrait of Nipsey Hussle was inked on Lauren London’s forearm as her way of honoring her late boyfriend.

The 34-year-old actress posted a photo of her new tattoo on Instagram with the caption, “Real Love Never Dies. When you see me, you will always see him.”

The portrait also featured the words, “God will rise” – a phrase the rapper had tattooed on his face next to his right eye.

The Game had his late friend’s portrait tattooed on his chest shortly after his passing.

They were joined by 21,000 friends, family and fans at Los Angeles' Staples Center for Nipsey’s memorial service Thursday following the March 31 shooting in South Los Angeles that took his life.

“You’ve made me into more of a woman. You’ve given me an opportunity to really love a man,” London said during his memorial service, reading a text message she wrote to her beloved.
