NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- Kobe Bryant's older sister debuted a new tattoo that pays tribute to her brother and niece Gianna Bryant, who were killed in a helicopter accident last month near Los Angeles. 

The ink, which Sharia Bryant Washington debuted on Instagram and was done by tattoo artist Peter Barrios, consists of the numbers 2 and 24 -- worn by Gianna and Kobe -- encircled by a black mamba snake. 

Vanessa Bryant also sahared the image on her Insatgram page, saying "(My sister-in-law got this cool tattoo to honor #GigiBryant and #Kobe)."

Barrios also shared a photo of the tattoo on Instagram, writing, "I had the honor of tattooing a memorial tattoo on @shariawash. Thank you for laughing with me today and letting me do this for you. I will never forget our conversations. Much love and respect your family."

Thank you @peterbarriostattoo ------
