Paris and Prince Jackson got coordinating Yin and Yang tattoos

big brother doing big things!! so proud of this stud muffin

A post shared by Paris-Michael K. Jackson (@parisjackson) on

Paris Jackson tuned 18 in April of last year. Since then, we have seen and heard more from Paris than in all her first 18 years combined. She is now an adult and has signed with IMG as a model so exposure is both her choice and necessary for her current profession, but it is surprising at the same time. It’s also surprising that Paris’ older brother, Prince, came into the spotlight as well. Prince is currently studying at Loyola Marymount University here in LA but is also stepping into the role of music producer. Of course, a producer doesn’t need his face known as much as his name and Michael Joseph Jackson, Jr. aka Prince is not going to have any issues with getting his name out there, is he? Anyway, my point to all this is that I think there is a reason that Prince emerged at the same time as Paris, I think Prince is the protector of the family and is watching Paris’ back as she navigates the tricky waters of fame. I imagine if their little brother Blanket decides to venture into the spotlight, Prince will do the same for him.

To show their bond, Paris and Prince got coordinated tattoos that together make up the Yin and Yang symbol. Paris posted this IG:

/yin/ [in Chinese philosophy] the passive female principle of the universe, characterized as female and sustaining and associated with structure, night, the moon, fluidity, calmness, the earth, darkness, cold, death, and ascends energy. /yang/ the active male principle of the universe, characterized as male and creative and associated with function, the sky and sun, speed, expression, heaven, heat, light, birth, and descends energy. sometimes i feel like my big brother and i always think the same thoughts, he just doesn't have a filter and always vocalizes them 😂 though total opposites, like my gooko and i, the inseparable yin and yang work together finding and causing balance within each other. matchies with my bestie @princejackson! ❤️

Prince posted the same pic with the caption, “You are with me and I am with you.”

I’m close to both my brothers. One is my daughter’s godfather and the other was the Bachelor of Honor at my wedding; those were my ways of honoring our bond. So, I’m coming down on the “this is really sweet” side of these tattoos. At first, I felt this seemed like they were excluding Blanket but 1) he is not 18 yet and can’t get a tattoo and 2) who’s to say they won’t get a triad inking once he comes of age? I cannot begin to imagine what it was like to grow up in Neverland – both the Jackson home and the life Jackson made for his children. Paris told us that she was treated as the princess who could do no wrong in her father’s eyes. Now she’s a very rich and influential princess with limited and unique life experiences trying to make it in an industry that chews people up and spits them out for sport. The sharks are already circling her. Thank goodness for Prince looking out for her. Prince may over talk his points but I think he probably has a solid head on his shoulders.

Speaking of tight sibling bonds, Paris’ new best friend, Kendall Jenner, knows a little something about families who stick together. Imma leave that right there and just repeat, thank GOODNESS she has Prince looking out for her.

    That’s cute, I’m glad for them 🙂
    But honest question; how come they are so white? Their father was black, I’m still surprise.

    • Darkladi says:

      Their bio father probably was white. Their father (MJ) wasn’t of course

    • Jess says:

      I have no doubt Michael isn’t their biological father. If you feel like going down a gigantic rabbit hole google all of it and you’ll see pictures of the men who most likely are biological. I saw Prince posted something about how it doesn’t matter to him though, Michael will always be his father no matter what and he refuses to do DNA testing, which I found very sweet. Good for him.

      Blanket is the only one I think resembles Michael and might actually be blood related. He looks so much like him to me.

    • daughterofthehorn says:

      loool i’m black (Somali, no we are not mixed with arab or anything else.)
      and my family members who have had kids with a white or arab partner all turned out pretty much white. My cousins get a bit tanned during the summer like a olive undertone but they still look white(spicy white lol). So yeah i don’t it’s that weird that they look white plus joe jackson has native blood ( he has green eyes). Genetics are weird.

      • Zan says:

        ok, thanks @daughterofthehorn!

      • KLO says:

        Yeah daughterofthehorn I totally agree that Somali people who have children with white partnerss tend to birth very light-skinned babies. David Bowies daughter Lexi is a very good example (her mother is 100 % African, Somali )

    • Babs says:

      Genetics are weird but those kids look nothing like MJ and don’t look like each other. At. All. Out of pure curiosity I admit, I hope one day we will know about their origin. I’m sure even Paris and Prince aren’t biological siblings, Rowe was only a surrogate. Nor Blanket obviously. MJ was their father anyway, but not their biological father, I’m a huge fan but I’m not buying this nonsense. It’s a shame he didn’t pass on his genes, but hey you cannot rewrite HIStory. He sure was a genius and strange man with a strange life.

      • Crumpet says:

        ” Out of pure curiosity I admit, I hope one day we will know about their origin.”

        I just don’t relate to that at all. Kids are adopted, surrogated, whatever by many families. I have a friend who is white, married to a Japanese man and they adopted two children – one white, one black. I am sorry that they undoubtedly go through scrutiny wherever they go. They are a family – origin matters not and should not be the subject of curiosity IMHO.

      • Babs says:

        Those families aren’t lying like MJ was (IMO) though. That’s why their origins are interesting, you know? Gossip and all.

      • tealily says:

        Crumpet, while I understand what you’re saying, it’s good gossip. Isn’t that why we’re here?

    • BlueBird says:

      I think Prince has eluded to the fact that he might not be genetically related but Paris and Blanket are apparently his biological children and Paris considers herself black. She’s light skinned but genetics are such a lottery. You can see she has darker skin in some of her younger photos and some people do seem to get lighter skin with age (myself included, so I speak from experience).

    • LAK says:

      Looking at the oldest kid, i am finally fully on board with the rumour that his bio father is Miko Brando, Marlon Brando’s son who was in MJ’s entourage.

    • Dani says:

      Why does it matter? Their father is Michael Jackson – genetically or not. I wish we would stop questioning the skin color of these children.

    • JaneFr says:

      First: Genetics and their lottery… My 50/50 brother’s girls, with a white white woman, are chocolate brown with brown eyes. My metis sister’s girl, with a white man, are blue, or green eyes girls with snow white skin in winter and pale golden skin in summer. My 100% dark black from africa cousin, with a red haired white man, got a red hair golden skin boy.
      So the kids looking this or that means nothing.

      Two : Who cares. biological or adopted, they were his children. Period.

  2. TheOtherViv says:

    It is AMAZING how much Prince looks like both Arnold Klein and Mark Lester. I am leaning toward Klein as biological father.
    Bless those kids. Just sad that all this confusion about MJ being their biological father nonsense was constantly thrown at them. They would have been fine just growing up as beloved and adopted. A name like Blanket is not too helpful either. I love MJ but this was a lil weird.

    • Zan says:

      Oh he was adopted?? Ok that answers my previous question. thanks!

      • Fiorella says:

        No they were born to a woman Debbie something living with Michael at the time. The only reason they are assumed to not be his bio kids is their appearance

      • LAK says:

        You guys are making me feel old!!! This stuff went down in the 90s in a blaze of publicity. There is no doubt that these kids are not his bio kids and Debbie Rowe was just a surrogate / egg donor even though he married her for a hot minute. She gave an interview to Hello (i think) in which she said she was happy to do this for him. She also signed away all parental rights though she later went to court to have them restored. I can’t remember if she was successful or was paid off.

        MJ used different sperm donors for the different kids, though the two oldest have the same egg donor ( Debbie Rowe) whilst the youngest’s egg donor remains a mystery.

        Rumoured sperm donors include, Mark Lester, Miko Brando and Arnold Klein.

        What is not uncertain is that he was their father legally. They were raised with, and without him, as his children. The bio details don’t matter.

  3. Catb says:

    The princess comment was from Harper’s Bazaar. She seems remarkably okay but so hard to imagine what their lives were like. She was pretty guarded with Bazaar… Have not read Rolling Stone piece. Nice that they are so close.

  4. Jess says:

    I think this is very sweet, I wondered about Blanket too though. These two seem to have a close bond, I’m sure it’s been an incredibly difficult way to grow up, even with all that money.

  5. Loopy says:

    I really hate these random splatered tattoos that Kelly Osbourne, Miley Cyrus and now Paris have, why not get cute little ones in disctreet places,like most of Rihannas,it looks terrible like a piece of scrap paper.

    • MellyMel says:

      Because that’s their choice…not everyone with tattoos wants “cute little ones in discreet places.”

      • Loopy says:

        Yes I know its their choice and it was just my opinion,alot end of going for lazer treatment, I was thinking that this could hinder getting certain jobs but I guess they are celebrities so probably does not apply.

  6. Nicole says:

    I find this cute. I agree that Prince seems to look out for his siblings and is more grounded. So it’s nice that he is that influence for his siblings. Nothin negative here

  7. Crumpet says:

    She looks so healthy and happy. And they seem to have a very close bond – I like the body language they display together. They need each other now that their father is gone, we know that Paris had a very hard time for awhile.

  8. serena says:

    Awww it is sweet! I hope Paris keeps away as much as she can from the Kardashians though :/

  9. QQ says:

    Their sibling’s name isn’t Blanket, I’m pretty sure of that

    • Loopy says:

      It was when he was younger, I think he prefers to be called something else now.

    • Mata says:

      I’m too lazy to look I up, but if I remember correctly, Blanket’s real name is also Prince Michael. He gave both boys the same name, which is one of the reasons, the youngest was/is known as Blanket.

    • tealily says:

      Yeah, Blanket is the nickname he was given by Michael. He was born Prince Michael II. I read he goes by Bigi now (I think on this site).

    I think this is sweet.
    I am glad to hear he is studying.
    I have a soft spot for the Jackson kids, they only have each other.
