While most people headed to social media to send heartwarming tributes to the first and longest-running Jewish woman on the Supreme Court, some opted for a more permanent tribute—a tattoo. 

Leading the way, actor-comedian Pete Davidson enlisted the help of New York tattoo artist Jon Mesa, to forever memorialize the political icon. 

Although Davidson got the ink back in 2018, it still proves the influence of RBG, who became a member of the Supreme Court in 1993. Following in the footsteps of the Saturday Night Live star, other admirers of the Supreme Court Judge began to do the same. We stan this trend.
