The Hebrew Word for ‘Kissed’ Completes Madonna’s ‘Trilogy of Tattoos’
With each new addition, Madonna’s collection of tiny wrist tattoos grows.
“I’m completing the trilogy of tattoos that I planned to do.” the 63-year-old music legend said in an Instagram video on Sunday.
With her tattoo artist El Ramirez and four children, including her 16-year-old son David and her 15-year-old daughters Mercy James and 9-year-old twins Stella and Estere, the singer was seen in what appeared to be her own home.
Madonna told to her youngest children throughout the design process that the new design was the Hebrew word for “kissed.”
It was the singer’s second wrist tattoo, which depicts the initials of each of her six children, that she opted for.
As a nod to her fictitious alter identity, she received a “X” on the opposite wrist as a tribute to Madame X.
she added a title to the video: “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 🕎.”
Madonna changed the script at the end of the video and used her own needle to ink her tattoo artist.
She drew a “X” on the top of Ramirez’s hand, demonstrating that she was at best a novice tattoo artist.
“It’s my first tattoo. Don’t tell anyone I did it,” This ended with her making a joke.
