Bindi Irwin's new tattoos are a special tribute to her family!

The daughter of Steve Irwin, the late iconic Crocodile Hunter, took to Instagram on January 6 to debut her latest artwork.

In addition to the 23-year-old conservationist's ink, the zookeeper shared a heartwarming message about the tattoos done in honor of her late father, husband, and adorable baby girl.

Bindi Irwin Unveils Her New Ink

The "Bindi the Jungle Girl" star shared two images of her tattoos; the first captured the words "graceful warrior" and an alligator drawn on her forearm.

The TV personality's hand was stretched towards her daughter, Grace Warrior, who gently used a finger to poke her mother's palm in the picture.

The adorable little girl was seen staring down at the zookeeper's left hand in the second snap, which had a ring of flowers designed around her wedding ring finger.

Given Bindi's frequent interactions with wild animals, the "Crikey! It's the Irwins" star wasn't afraid to express her vulnerability in the post's caption as she got candid about the tattoos.

The proud daughter of the late wildlife expert revealed that her first artwork was inspired by the first time she held her daughter in her arms.

At that tender moment, the mother's first words to her little bundle of joy were "My graceful warrior," and this statement became her daughter's unique name.

These powerful words were designed using Steve's handwriting to honor her late father, and Daisy, Bindi's alligator, was drawn to represent the Irwin clan's jobs as "Wildlife Warriors."

On the topic of family, Chandler Powell, the Australian beauty's husband, wasn't left out as the second tattoo embodied the couple's vows, which the TV personality described as her "beautiful wedding ring in bloom."

In the concluding part of her touching message, the "Bindi's Bootcamp" host further clarified the importance of her tattoos by writing:

"Validation every day of the three most important things in my life: family, purpose, and unconditional love. Since Grace's breastfeeding journey ended, now felt like the perfect time for this empowering artwork."

Last November, The Blast reported that the Australian zookeeper was head over heels for Grace and couldn't stop gushing about the little girl.

Following the precious baby's arrival in March, the doting mother has blessed fans with several adorable family moments on Instagram.

In one of their beloved mother-and-daughter posts, the 23-year-old was seen laying down beside Grace, who held a pacifier in one hand as she beamed brightly at the camera. 

If the baby's cute chubby cheeks weren't enough to melt one's heart, the animal activist pulled at viewers' heartstrings by writing:

"Grace Warrior, the best part of my life is being your mama."

Being emotionally vulnerable wasn't new to Bindi, as The Blast previously reported that the conservationist marked her parents' 29th wedding anniversary with a sweet Instagram post.

Technically, this wasn't Steve and Terri Irwin's 29th wedding anniversary as the wildlife expert died in 2006 from a sting-ray attack.

Regardless, this fantastic milestone was celebrated by the "Growing Up Wild" star, proving that her love for family hasn't dwindled with time.
