This portrait of young Madonna demonstrates her relationship with NYC through her tattoos: for instance, “1977” on her arm is the year when she moved to NYC. The “I LOVE NY” T-shirt the singer is wearing, pays homage to the city where her career was launched. She also has a Madonna, Virgin Mary, tattoo on her left arm. Over her eyebrow the words “Rebel Heart” can be seen, that is the name of Madonna’s single as well as the title of this piece. Madonna is wearing a flower crown since blooming flowers are a symbol of youth and innocence.
