Lady Gaga made use of her recently shaved head yesterday - by having the bald expanse of skull tattooed live, during the launch of her debut fragrance 'Fame' in New York.

Sweet Jesu.

The live inking happened at the Guggenheim museum - where a series of live art installations were taking place - in front of a pretty sizable crowd that included Lindsay Lohan and Paris Hilton.

We're surpised Li-Lo didn't jump on stage and start demanding someone tattooed her fanny or something. (We joke, we joke)

26-year-old Gaga- who shaved her head as a tribute to photographer Terry Richardson's late mother - posted a photo of her new tatt on the Little Monsters website, along with the caption: "You're a made woman of the art mafia."

She also shared this snap of the cherub like inking as it was being tattooed, writing: "Tatting Guggenheim :just an average day."

Her tattooist Mark Mahoney revealed the meaning behind the inking, saying: "It's kind of a Renaissance era cherub, a nod to her Italian heritage."

He also admitted that he'd been a little apprehensive about PERMANTLY ALTERING Gaga's appearance in front of a MASSIVE CROWD, adding: "Once I got the pattern on, I realised it was just a perfect image for that place on the body. I knew it was going to be fine, just because it seemed to fit so perfectly right there."
