Today would have been Whitney Houston's 49th birthday, and to commemorate her tragically deceased mother, Bobbi Kristina Brown got her mother's initials tattooed on her wrist.

"Tat tat tatted YURP," tweeted the 19-year-old along with an Instagram pic of the tattoo. "Now your truly ALWAYS with us mommy (: we love you @nickdgordon always&forever."

The other arm in the picture with "WH" ink belongs to Nick Gordon, Bobbi Kristina's boyfriend and her sort-of adopted brother (no, they're not actually related; yes, it is controversial). 

But regardless what you think about Bobbi Kristina dating Nick Gordon, it's a touching gesture from both of them on Whitney's first birthday since her passing.
