At 62-years-old, Madonna decided to get her very first tattoo.
The music icon decided to incorporate her family into the minimal but striking artwork.
Madonna documented the entire (and stunning) process on Instagram.
The tattoo are the letters “L,” “R,” “D,” “M,” “S,” and “E,” which are the initials of her children Lourdes, Rocco, David, Mercy, Stella, and Estere.
When speaking with Daily News earlier this year, the icon combated criticism in regards to continuing to perform despite her age.
“I take care of myself. I’m in good shape. I can show my (expletive) when I’m 56 or 66 or 76,” she said, reacting to criticism of her Grammys derriere-flashing stunt. “Who’s to say when I can show my (expletive)? It’s sexism. It’s ageism. And it’s a kind of discrimination.”
Similarly, in a 2017 interview with Harper’s Bazaar, she claimed many of her haters just wanted her gone.
“Does somebody ask Steven Spielberg why he’s still making movies? Hasn’t he had enough success? … Did somebody go to Pablo Picasso and say, ‘OK, you’re 80 years old. Haven’t you painted enough paintings?’ ” she said.
“I’ll stop doing everything that I do when I don’t want to do it anymore. I’ll stop when I run out of ideas. I’ll stop when you (expletive) kill me. How about that?”
And that’s why Madonna is an icon — she can’t stop and she won’t stop!
