Madonna has been tattooed for the very first time — at the age of 62.

The “Like a Virgin” singer and mother of six has had a tribute to her children inked on the inside of her left wrist.

Madonna showed off her new tattoo on Instagram, writing: “Inked for The Very First Time ... #family.”

The singer has had the initials of her six children — Lourdes, 24, Rocco, 20, David, 15, Mercy, 14, and 8-year-old twins Stella and Estere — tattooed on her wrist in black ink in a vintage typewriter-style font.

Madonna traveled to the Shamrock Social Club tattoo studio in Hollywood to have the design etched by celebrated tattoo artist East Iz, who is famous for his extremely fine-lined tattoos.

The Material Girl was wrapped up in a thick wool sweater and black leather bomber jacket and wore a black-and-white patterned bandana tied over her face as a mask.

She also shared images of the Virgin Mary, aka Madonna, from around the tattoo studio.

Madonna had her first daughter Lourdes at 38 with personal trainer and actor Carlos Leon. She then had son Rocco four years later with ex-husband Guy Ritchie.

She adopted son David Banda from Malawi in 2006 when he was a baby, and then daughter Mercy three years later, also from Malawi.

Her twin daughters, Stella and Estere, were 2 years old when she adopted them from an orphanage in Malawi.

Madonna recently celebrated Thanksgiving with her entire family, along with her choreographer boyfriend, Ahlamalik Williams, 26.

During the coronavirus pandemic Madonna has shared her “quarantine diaries” on social media, leading to a backlash after she called COVID-19 the “great equalizer.”

She was also criticized for attending a friend’s birthday party and not socially distancing after revealing she had tested positive for coronavirus antibodies.
