April 3 (UPI) -- Prince Jackson got a new tattoo honoring dad Michael Jackson over the weekend.

The 20-year-old aspiring producer, born Michael Joseph Jackson, Jr., paid tribute to his father by getting a tattoo of the late singer on his calf.

The tattoo shows a winged version of Michael in one of his signature poses. Prince followed up Monday by posting a close-up picture of the bottom portion of the tattoo.

"The details are incredible," he wrote.

Prince is the eldest son of Michael, who was also dad to 19-year-old Paris, born Paris-Michael Katherine Jackson, and 15-year-old Blanket, born Prince Michael Jackson II. Prince and his sister got matching yin yang tattoos last week.

"Sometimes i feel like my big brother and i always think the same thoughts, he just doesn't have a filter and always vocalizes them," Paris wrote. "Though total opposites, like my gooko and i, the inseparable yin and yang work together finding and causing balance within each other."

Prince said in an interview with Good Morning America in March that it took "a while" for him and his siblings to realize the extent of their dad's fame. Michael died at age 50 in 2009.

"Even after we realized he was the King of Pop, even to this day, I don't think it holds the same weight to us as to other people, because he was our dad," Prince said.
