The dancer headed to the Brothers in Arts tattoo parlour, which he has visited before for some of his other tattoos, to get the inking done, which was designed in tribute to his daughter Ella and his late father, Allan. James shared a glimpse of the design on his Instagram Stories as it was being done, with the final tattoo revealed to be an angel overlooking a design of Ella.
