Bobbi Kristina Brown's boyfriend Nick Gordon has demonstrated how much she means to him by getting her name tattooed onto his arm. The 24-year-old shared a picture of his new tattoo on Twitter, and urged fans to continue to pray for his girlfriend.
Nick has been the subject of frequent speculation about his relationship with Bobbi Kristina since she was discovered unresponsive in a bath tub at their Atlanta home on 31 January. However he is still holding out hope for Bobbi's recovery and asked his Twitter followers to pray for her.
"Thank you for all your prayers. She is a strong person and will pull through this. Continue to pray for her," he tweeted.

Nick Gordon has got Bobbi Kristina Brown's name tattooed
It is not the first time Nick has paid tribute to a loved one with a tattoo. He and Bobbi Kristina both got matching WH tattoos in memory of Whitney Houston on what would have been her 49th birthday.
Nick's latest tattoo comes at a time when there is reportedly mounting tension between him and Bobbi Kristina's family. It was rumoured that Nick had been banned from visiting Bobbi Kristina in hospital at the request of her family, however he has dismissed wide-spread speculation that he is planning to take legal action to see her.
"In response to reports that Nick Gordon is taking legal action, he would like to make it clear, he is not," a statement issued through legal attorneys read. "Mr Gordon's only concern is the recovery of Bobbi Kristina.

"He remains in constant prayer for his companion and he hopes to be reunited with her soon.
"Despite the incredible public interest, we ask and hope that this matter can be resolved privately by Mr Gordon and the family."
Nick was largely raised by Whitney Houston and grew up alongside Bobbi Kristina, although he was never formally adopted. The couple took their romance public following Whitney's death in February 2012, sparking concern among her loved ones.
In early February, father Bobby Brown issued a statement saying that Bobbi Kristina and Nick were not married – as they had led people to believe last year.
Bobbi Kristina continues to fight for her life in an Atlanta hospital, and while her situation remains critical, family sources have denied reports that her "organs are shutting down".
