TERESA Giudice got a sweet tattoo in tribute to her late mother Antonia Gorga, who died in 2017.

Teresa shared a video of herself at the tattoo parlor on her Instagram Stories.

She recited the Italian saying out loud as tattoo artist Ashley Hsiung got to work on the design.

The mother-of-four used the same phrase while paying tribute to Antonia last week.

"I miss you so much Mommy," the reality star wrote while sharing photos of Antonia throughout the years.

"Not a day goes by that I do not think of you. #mommy #love #333  #sempreinsieme."

Antonia – who often appeared on episodes of RHONJ – died in March 2017 at the age of 66 after battling pneumonia.

"My mother, she fought really hard. But the pneumonia was too hard for her," Teresa said tearfully on RHONJ's season 8 premiere in October 2017.

"My mom, she was just the most caring, loving mom ever. And she only cared about my brother, me and my dad. She was an amazing woman. She was pretty amazing."

Teresa tragically lost her father and Antonia's husband Giacinto at the age of 76 in April last year.

Giacinto, who moved into Teresa's home after Antonia died, passed away from COPD and heart issues and was buried beside Antonia at a cemetery in New Jersey.

Teresa called Giacinto the "absolute strongest man I know" in a devastating tribute at the time.

"Thank you for being the best husband, father & Nonno," she went on.

She added: "Your devotion to mommy was one for the record books, you were the true example and a gentleman and devoted husband.

"You visited mommy every single day & would go twice for the days you missed while traveling or if you were to sick to go, my silver lining is knowing you'll be together now.

"Thank you for showing us all what true love is. Love you Papa Rest In Peace."

In October, Teresa marked her late mother's birthday posting: "Happy Birthday beautiful mother of mine!"

She continued: "I miss you so much I can barely describe the feeling but I know you were so happy to finally welcome daddy to heaven! I bet you two are having the best time.

"The girls and I miss you every single day but I know we are making you proud. Boun Compleanno Momma."

Teresa has four daughters with her ex-husband Joe Giudice –  Gia, 20, Gabrielle, 16, Milania, 15, and Audriana, 11.

Last year Teresa began dating Luis Ruelas, and Joe is seeing Daniela Fittipaldi in Italy.
