Model Chrissy Teigen paid tribute to her husband with a new minimalist tattoo inked down her spine.

On Instagram, she uploaded a short behind-the-scenes video of the process featuring John Legend and tattoo artist Daniel Winter (known as Winter Stone).

The video opens with Legend singing a few notes before the full song starts playing in the background, and all three start preparing for the tattoo. 

The tattoo features words “Ooh Laa”—lyrics from John’s song of the same name from his latest album, Bigger Love.

Midway through the video, the couple reminisced about her first time hearing the song, but Teigen said she remembers hearing most of Legend’s songs for the first time but she doesn’t recall this one.

Her husband reminds her with a smile on his face that they played it on vacation, and it was a “good conversation starter.”
