Bindi Irwin pays tribute to her late dad Steve Irwin and daughter as she debuts her new tattoo in his writing.

The 23-year-old showed off her new tattoo on social media alongside an explanation of the sweet words.

The new ink which is on her forearm reads: "Graceful warrior."

She penned: "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.

"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. And my beautiful wedding ring in bloom."

Explaining the timing of having the tattoo, she continued: "Validation every day of the three most important things in my life: family, purpose and unconditional love.

"Since Grace's breastfeeding journey ended, now felt like the perfect time for this empowering artwork."

Bindi thanked Australia-based tattoo artist Kelly McQuirk who designed the piece.

McQuirk reposted the meaningful artwork on her Instagram Story.

She said: "So blessed to be able to create such heartfelt and important pieces for @bindisueirwin.

"Your kindness and compassion are out of this world. Adore you."

Bindi is married to Chandler Powell and welcomed their daughter last year calling her Grace Warrior.

The pair called Grace "the greatest gift of this year" on social media and she appears alongside her parents on their show Crikey! It's the Irwins.

The fourth series of the show has just premiered and the zookeeper can be heard saying "motherhood has been the greatest adventure of my life," in the trailer video.

"I love that every day brings a new, happy moment [and] a new challenge," Bindi continued, later adding that she has "never worried so much in my life because I want her to be absolutely healthy and happy 100 percent of the time."

She said: "But I am also happier than ever just being with my family and enjoying time together."
