Joe Giudice has some new ink — and the meaning behind it will tug at your heartstrings.
In between his gym sessions, construction work, and winery tours, Teresa Giudice's husband managed to find some time to stop by a tattoo shop for some fresh body art. Naturally, Joe — who has become quite the active Instagram user these days — shared a glimpse at his tatt session on IG. In a new clip posted on Wednesday, March 4, Joe recorded himself getting a giant tattoo on the left side of his chest, by an Italian tattoo artist named Carmella. "Alright Gia, I just want you to know, I'm doing this because of you. This hurts and I hate it," The Real Housewives of New Jersey dad shared.
In another video, Joe revealed the final result: the head of an eagle overlooking the silhouette of a smaller eagle soaring atop a mountainside. Joe explained he got this tattoo in honor of his daughters, Gia, Gabriella, Milania, and Audriana. "I want to give them strength to mount up with wings as eagles, they shall always run and not be spent. My girls will always be powerful and courageous women. I promise to look over you as strength and shield them from [devil face emoji] . Daddy loves you forever," he wrote.
While the tattoo is meant for all four girls, it appears eldest daughter Gia played a big role in the decision. "This is it Gia," he wrote, and added "hope you like it."
In fact, it looks like Gia also recently got a tattoo of her own, which may have sparked her dad's decision. Beneath Joe's tattoo reveal video, Gia commented "love you dad." She added, "hope you liked mine too xo."
