Madonna may be done with tattoos after getting the final design in a trilogy she started last year.
The Queen of Pop had four of her children, David, 16, daughter Mercy James, 15, and nine-year-old twins Stella and Estere, with her as she got her third tattoo.
In footage shared on her Instagram account, Madonna, 63, is seen sitting through the process with her children looking on inquisitively. At one point, her youngest kids are seen kissing her mum’s new body art.
Madonna later took the tattoo gun into her own hands and gave her artist, ele.nyc, a new design.
However, she warned: ‘Just remember you asked for it,’ before exclaiming as it finished: ‘Oh it’s terrible! I’m the worst. Look it’s my first tattoo, OK? I’m sorry about that. Just don’t tell anybody I did it.’
The Vogue hitmaker captioned the post: ‘Completing the trilogy of tattoos……. I choose to do this year – וישקהו “kissed”. Life is a journey to remove the Space between ourselves and humanity. @ele.nyc Happy Chanukah.’
It comes less than a year since Madonna got her first tattoo at the age of 62 as a tribute to her six children, including Lourdes and Rocco.
She had all of her kids’ initials etched across her wrist, with the body art design reading: ‘L, R, D, M, S, E.’
Madonna caused a stir last week when she posted a set of risque bedroom photos to Instagram, some of which featured her freeing the nipple. However, the post was removed by the social media platform for breaching their rules on nudity and the singer had no problem calling them out for it.
She late reposted the images, this time censored, and wrote in the scathing caption: ‘I’m reposting photographs Instagram took down without warning or notification….. The reason they gave my management that does not handle my account was that a small portion of my nipple was exposed.
‘It is still astounding to me that we live in a culture that allows every inch of a woman’s body to be shown except a nipple. As if that is the only part of a woman’s anatomy that could be sexualized. The nipple that nourishes the baby!’
She continued: ‘Can’t a mans nipple be experienced as erotic ??!! And what about a woman’s ass which is never censored anywhere. Giving thanks that I have managed to maintain my sanity through four decades of censorship…… sexism……ageism and misogyny.’
