Atandwa Kani will carry a permanent memory of Chadwick Boseman wherever he goes. 

The South African actor unveiled a new tattoo dedicated to the 'Black Panther' star on his Instagram page.

"Tattoo Art Tribute by @crea8tivesoul ... Rest In Peace King ... #RIPChadwickBoseman," he wrote. 

Chadwick passed away last month after losing his battle with colon cancer. 

Atandwa starred alongside the 43-year-old in 'Black Panther'. He played a younger version of King T'Chaka - Black Panther's father. 

His father, John Kani, played the older version of King T'Chaka.

Here's a look at the picture that inspired Atandwa's tattoo.

Atandwa got to know Chadwick during 'Black Panther''s production and he was pictured with the actor on several occasions. 

He was one of the first actors to pay tribute to Chadwick following his death.

"I have no words... I love you my brother,' Atandwa wrote.

There's still no word on what will happen to the 'Black Panther' sequel. The movie, which was still in the early stages of development when Chadwick died, was originally scheduled for a 2022 release date

Marvel Studios may replace his character with a new actor, while some have suggested that T'Challa's sister, Princess Shuri (played by Letitia Wright), should become the new 'Black Panther'.
