Bindi Irwin Shows Off New Tattoo Explaining It’s Sentimental Meaning
Bindi Irwin’s new tattoo consists of two words that are a tribute to her late father, Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin as well as her daughter Grace Warrior Irwin Powell who was born in March last year.
On the inside of her left wrist are the words “graceful warrior” in Steve’s handwriting, right next to a drawing of a crocodile. Steve Irwin died in 2006 when Bindi was just eight years old.
“The words I spoke to our daughter as I held her for the first time in my arms were, ‘my graceful warrior’. That’s how her name was born,” Bindi wrote on Instagram alongside the photos below.
“This is my dad’s handwriting to keep him with me, always. Our dear alligator, Daisy, is next to these words to represent our conservation work as Wildlife Warriors.”

Bindi has also had her wedding ring finger tattooed saying the tattoos represented the three most important things in her life, “family, purpose and unconditional love”. The artwork has been done by Brisbane tattooist Kelly McQuirk.
Bindi went on to say that she waited until her breastfeeding was done before undertaking the new tattoos. Her husband Chandler Powell wrote on the post that the tattoos were a meaningful way to mark their life together. “You amaze me every day,” he said.
The new mum explained that Grace’s two middle names, Warrior Irwin, were a tribute to her dad’s legacy as “the most incredible wildlife warrior”.
