Jada Pinkett Smith, Willow Smith, and Adrienne Banfield Norris got matching tattoos.
The family members got inked by Dr. Woo on the latest episode of their talk show, "Red Table Talk."
The stars got a trio of lotus flowers on their arms, symbolizing enlightenment and their bond.
Willow Smith got meaningful matching lotus tattoos with her mother, Jada Pinkett Smith, and her grandmother, Adrienne Banfield Norris, on the latest episode of their show "Red Table Talk" on Facebook Watch.
During the episode, the family members explained that the idea for matching ink came out a few months prior when Smith showed off her half-sleeve tattoo on the season four premiere of "RTT."
In an un-aired conversation from the episode, they discussed the possibility of getting tattoos together, but Pinkett Smith wasn't sold on the idea. She finally agreed after her daughter proposed that they get three interlocking circles that symbolize each other.
Pinkett Smith, who already has tattoos dedicated to family members, said that getting inked with her daughter and mom at Dr. Woo's low-key studio inside the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel was "a major bucket list experience."
At the suggestion of Smith, they asked Dr. Woo to design a lotus, which is often viewed as a symbol of rebirth. Rather than one lotus tattoo, they agreed to get a trio showing the various stages of the lotus flowers.
"The lotus represents spiritual enlightenment and we hear this saying, 'Through the mud grows the lotus,'" Smith said of the symbolism of the ink, which they all got on their arms.
She continued: "And I think all of us from different practices in life have had that journey, the bud to the little blossom to the bloom. Also, I feel like [it] expresses the spiritual journey but also the three of us. I'm the youngest, my mom is the middle, and Gam is the fully bloomed lotus."
Similarly, Banfield Norris said that the design encapsulates the obstacles she's overcome in her life.
"You have to go through the mud, the dirt, and still something beautiful is created," she said. "And that kind of describes my journey. I've been through some really tough times but I'm still worthy and there's still room for me to grow and change. Even now at 67, I'm still growing and changing and trying to be better."
