Lisa Marie Presley shared a tribute to her late son Benjamin Keough to mark the second anniversary of his death.
Benjamin, Presley’s son with musician Danny Keough, died by suicide at the age of 27 in 2020.
On Tuesday, Presley shared an image on Instagram of the matching tattoos she and Benjamin once got and captioned the post with a touching message about her relationship with her late son.
“Several years ago, on Mother’s Day, my son and I got these matching tattoos on our feet,” Presley wrote. “It’s a Celtic eternity knot. Symbolizing that we will be connected eternally. We carefully picked it to represent our eternal love and our eternal bond.”
Presley recently spoke about her son as she heaped praise on Baz Lurhmann’s biopic about her father, Elvis Presley, “Elvis,” which is currently in theaters.
Presley tweeted that the lead Austin Butler deserved an Oscar for his performance as Elvis and described the film as “nothing short of spectacular.” She said she was moved by having her three children, Riley, Harper, and Finley, watch the movie with her but added that she missed Benjamin.
She said: “It breaks my heart that my son isn’t here to see it. He would have absolutely loved it as well.”
In an earlier tweet, she said of Benjamin: “Hello, I haven’t posted in quite some time because there really isn’t much to say, as I’m and will forever be mourning the loss of my son. Navigating through this hideous grief that absolutely destroyed & shattered my heart and my soul into almost nothing has swallowed me whole.”
Presley and her family were also recently honored by having their hands and footprints immortalized outside the TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood.
Presley tweeted after the ceremony: “My family and I are so truly honored and grateful to have been asked to put our handprints in such an incredible and historic place together.”
