Gabby Petito's family have unveiled matching tattoos they have got in her honour.
Parents Joseph Petito and Nicole Schmidt have paid tribute to the late 22-year-old influencer, alongside their spouses Tara Petito and Jim Schmidt.
Take a look at them here:
Sporting matching designs on their forearms on Tuesday during a press conference, Mr Schmidt told reporters: “These were tattoos that Gabby designed herself, she was an artist.”
The tattoos feature a flower inside a triangle, alongside a wave and the words 'Believe' and 'Let It Be' - in reference to the famous Beatles lyrics.

The words Let It Be have special significance to the family, seeing as Gabby is said to have loved the song - so much so that it was featured in her deeply moving eulogy at the weekend.
He poignantly told crowds: “And when the broken hearted people living in the world agree; there will be an answer, let it be.
“It’s OK to mourn for Gabby. It’s OK to feel sorrow and pain, but we want to celebrate her and how she lived her life. We want you to hold onto all those wonderful memories we shared with her because that would be the answer; let it be.”
Joseph Petito also got a branch of leaves around his finger, matching another of Gabby's tattoos.
Explaining why he opted for the inking, he said: “I wanted to have her with me all the time.
"We need positive stuff to come from the tragedy that happened. We all had them done last night, we all did it together. We always co-parented Gabby together and that's not going to stop now, we’re in this together.”
Gabby's family reported her missing after they stopped hearing from her back in August.
She had been living in the camper-van while travelling across the States with her fiancé, Brian Laundrie, and documenting their journey on social media.
Gabby and Laundrie begun their nationwide road trip in a white Ford Transit van back in July, sharing videos that became popular online.
Laundrie returned home without her at the beginning of September, and her parents contacted the police 10 days later.
Police subsequently confirmed that a body found in a Wyoming National Park was the missing YouTuber.
Now, the FBI has ruled that Gabby's death was a 'homicide' - adding the official cause would be announced pending final autopsy results.
Laundrie has since also gone missing, and is being treated as a person of interest.
