We already knew that Evan Rachel Wood was pretty much the coolest 鈥 one need look no further than the stand she took against Hollywood heavyweight Woody Allen or her recent reasoning for wearing a suit to the Golden Globes for proof of that 鈥 but the Westworld actress just gave us yet another reason entirely to love her.

In honor of her hero, the late David Bowie, who would鈥檝e been 70 years old on January 8, Evan made a small, but significant update to the Aladdin Sane lightning bolt tattoo she got nearly a decade ago at the age of 19.

Posting the change to Instagram, she wrote, 鈥10 years ago I got a lightning bolt in a Valentine to honor David Bowie. After he died, I filled it in black. Miss you, starman.鈥

It makes sense that she鈥檇 go to such lengths to pay tribute to him: The piece she penned for Nylon following his death was practically an open love letter to the musician, with lines like, 鈥淏owie is in everything I do. He introduced me to androgyny, surrealism, glam, poetry, fashion, sex 鈥 and rock 鈥榥鈥 roll, for God鈥檚 sake.鈥

Eventually going on to meet the man she calls her idol as a teen, Evan wrote, 鈥溾淚 knew that no other artist had as much of an influence on my life and my very identity than David Bowie鈥e made me feel like as long as he was around, I had a place.鈥

And now that he鈥檚 gone? 鈥淸His death means] a mark of time and the end of an era. It鈥檚 when I am really grown up and the torch is being passed to all of us now.鈥

RIP, David. Oh, and Evan? Never change.
