'For you, Poppo': Zelda Williams' beautiful tattoo tribute to her dad


Robin Williams' daughter has found a way to always keep her father's memory on hand.

Zelda took to her Instagram page to share a beautiful tattoo tribute to her late father -- a hummingbird on her right hand, and Robin's birthday, '7.21.51.'on her wrist. The late actor committed suicide at his home in Tiburon, California, in August. "For poppo," she captioned the heartrending post. "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."

She also expressed misgivings about keeping her Instagram account open, after being taunted on Twitter and the picture sharing site just days after her father's death.

"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."
