Elvis Presley's granddaughter Riley Keough has paid tribute to her late brother Benjamin this week as she debuted a new tattoo in his honour.

The tattoo - which is above her right collarbone - reads "Benjamin Storm" in cursive lettering.

It appears Riley took inspiration from her brother, who had her name inked on him in cursive in a similar spot. 

Days after Benjamin's death, the 31-year-old took to social media to share a heartfelt message to her brother.

"Mornings are the hardest. I forget you're gone. I can't cry because of the fear that I will never stop. A pain that's new to me," she wrote.

"You. There are no words for you. Angel is the closest I could think of. Pure light. Baby brother. Best friend. Wild man. Intellectual. Witness to my life. Twin soul. Protector. Too sensitive for this harsh world. I hope you give me strength to endure the giant hole you’ve left in my heart."

Benjamin was found dead on July 12. He was 27.

Ben - whose father is singer-songwriter Danny Keough and sister is actress Riley Keough - kept a low profile throughout the years, but recently went viral for looking almost identical to his famous grandfather.

Lisa previously addressed the similarity, saying: "Ben does look so much like Elvis. He was at the Opry and was the quiet storm behind the stage.

"Everybody turned around and looked when he was over there. Everybody was grabbing him for a photo because it is just uncanny."

Lisa Marie Presley, 52, is the only child of the legendary singer and actor, who died in 1977 at age 42.
