Madonna Just Got Her First Tattoo and It's for All Her Kids

The Queen of Pop shared the whole process of getting her first ink on Instagram.

Madonna is know for being edgy when it comes to her style and her music, but there's one thing that she surprisingly hasn't tried until now: getting inked. As she shared on Instagram on Monday, Dec. 7, Madonna just got her first tattoo. The legendary singer went for a small, simple design on her wrist, and it's one that has a lot of significance. Read on to see Madonna's first tattoo, and for more on what she's been up to lately, check out Madonna Just Posted a Rare Photo of Her Big, Happy Family.

Madonna's first tattoo

Madonna's tattoo is of the letters "LRDMSE," the first initials of her six children, in order from oldest to youngest: Lourdes, Rocco, David, Mercy, and twins Stella and Estere. The 62-year-old pop star and mom captioned her Instagram post, "Inked for The Very First Time" and used the hashtag "#family."

The pop star shared the whole process of getting the tattoo in her Instagram post. You can see the pink-haired mom of six coming up with the design with her tattoo artist, East Iz, and laying down on a table while getting inked at Shamrock Social Club in Los Angeles.

Madonna is far from the only celebrity to have a tattoo in honor of her children, of course. Here are five more celebrities who showed their love with ink.

Like Madonna, Angelina Jolie has six children. In honor of them, she has the coordinates of each of their birth locations on her upper arm. She also has the coordinates of ex-husband Brad Pitt's birthplace of Shawnee, Oklahoma. The tattoo replaced another Jolie used to have for her ex-husband Billy Bob Thornton, a dragon with his name.
