Robin Williams' daughter shares bird tattoo tribute to her father on Instagram

24 October 2014, 07:58

Los Angeles - Zelda Williams has paid a touching tribute to her late father Robin by having a humming bird tattooed on her hand.

The 25-year-old actress had the inking done on her right hand above the actor's birth date, "7.21.51", after he took his own life in August, and she has admitted she will "always shake with a smile" as a result of the tattoo.

In part of a heartfelt message attached to the image, which she had inked by tattoo artist Dr Woo at Shamrock Social in Hollywood on Wednesday, she wrote on Instagram: "For poppo. Thank you to the incomparable@dr_woo_ssc for so beautifully bringing my reminders to life. I'll always put my hand out to shake with a smile. (sic)"

The Teen Wolf star also admitted she isn't planning on using Instagram a great deal in the future but is keen to keep her account active so her fans know it is her official page, and she warned supporters not to share personal information or donations with anyone claiming to be her or her family.

In the other part of her message, she wrote: "As for this Instagram, I don't know in what capacity I'll continue using it in the future, but I'm leaving it up regardless so that fake accounts hoping to use my name or misuse my family's photos will get no traction. To be clear, this is MY ONLY account. Publicly, I have Twitter, and this. If other people post quotes and photos claiming to be me or my family, please, do not send them personal information or click links, even for charity. They could be utilizing sympathy to scam you. For the record, no one has ever or will ever speak for me but me. Thank you. (sic)"

The raven-haired star - who was named by Robin after computer game The Legend of Zelda - briefly quit Twitter after receiving abusive messages following her father's suicide in August but later returned to the social networking site.

Zelda paid tribute to Robin again earlier this month when she took to Twitter to promote World Mental Health Day after revealing her father had "fought depression his whole life".

She wrote: "Today is #WorldMentalHealthDay. Mental illness is often misunderstood & misrepresented, but that's starting to change. Let's end the stigma.

"Mental health IS as important as physical health, & whether there are visible signs or not, the suffering is real. It can affect EVERYONE.

"Lastly, my dad openly fought depression his whole life, both in general and his own. No matter what anyone says, it is a FIGHT. Fight on. (sic)"
