Missy Franklin got inked!

The Team USA swimmer shared a photo of her first tattoo – the Olympic rings on her hip.

“All inked up AHH! Can’t believe it!” the 17-year-old athlete Tweeted on Thursday, along with a photo of the tattoo. “My one and only!”

It’s a fitting tribute for Missy, as the swimmer left the London Olympic Games with five medals – four gold and one bronze.

Prior to her inking, Missy made a trip to “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” where the Olympian had a great time with the late night host.

“I also cannot express how much of an honor it was to be on the Tonight Show yesterday with @jayleno! It was a blast!” she wrote.
