MADONNA has showed off her latest tattoo on her wrist – which has a surprising hidden meaning.
The Papa Don't Preach singer, 63, got a design from a Kabbalah book inked on herself at the weekend.
Madonna borrowed a design from the cover of Ten Luminous Emanations by Yehuda Ashlag.
She shared a photo of the new inking on the inside of her left wrist on her Instagram Stories on Sunday, writing: "10. Luminous Emanations In Which GOD. Becomes Manifest."
The book was published in 1996 by the Research Centre of Kabbalah, and is about the "process of creation leading up to the Big Bang origins of our universe".
The Like A Virgin's latest inking marks her fourth tattoo, having got her first one back in 2020.

She first got the initial of each of her six children's first names tattooed on her wrist – L R D M S E.
The letters signify Lourdes, 25, Rocco, 21, David, 16, Mercy, 16, and twins Stella and Estere, nine.
Last March, Madonna got a red X tattooed on the inside of her right wrist to celebrate her latest album, Madame X.
Several months later in November, she got the Hebrew word for "kissed" on her left wrist, just below her children's initials.

Madonna – who recently shocked fans with her youthful face – revealed in the early 2000s that she is studying Kabbalah, a form of Jewish mysticism which explores the creation of the universe and its relation to God.
Back in 2013, she opened up about her circumstances at the time that led her to the practice.
“At 35, I was divorced and looking for love in all the wrong places. I decided that I needed to be more than a girl with gold teeth and gangster boyfriends," the popstar told Harper’s Bazaar.
"More than a sexual provocateur imploring girls not to go for second-best baby.
"I began to search for meaning and a real sense of purpose in life. I wanted to be a mother, but I realized that just because I was a freedom fighter didn’t mean I was qualified to raise a child."
Madonna went on: "I decided I needed to have a spiritual life. That’s when I discovered Kabbalah.”
Discussing the backlash she faced at the time, the singer added: “Kabbalah really freaked people out. It still does.
