Madonna, 64, wanted to show the extreme preparations she is taking for her upcoming world tour as she took to Instagram to post an insight.
The music legend shared a closeup with her 18.9 million followers, highlighting large bruises on her thighs.
She wrote “sacrifice” over the post while styling her bright red hair in a straight look.
Madonna sported a ragged black tank top with a red-and-white illustration stitched over the chest.
She paired her top with black stockings that reached up to her thighs, giving a rather leggy display.

The Queen of Pop went for a pair of mini scarlet red shorts, completing the look with black-framed glasses and a chunky white belt.
Although she seemed relaxed, she could be seen holding a microphone as if she was still practising.
Madonna’s celebration tour begins on July 15 with a sold-out Vancouver show, before snaking its way south through the western US.
She’ll spend October through early December around Europe, before heading back to North America.
This comes after reports that Madonna’s biopic, Little Sparrow, had been scrapped following years of development and planning.
Ozark’s Julia Garner had been cast to play the Material Girl, however, it was reported in January that the production was being put on the backburner.
Not all hope was lost as Madonna shared a picture of herself and Julia earlier this month.
She captioned the post: “B***h we’re Madonna!”
The two had been attending the photographer Steven Klein’s 58th birthday, according to the New York Post.
Madonna co-wrote with Juno scribe Diablo Cody before Secretary screenwriter Erin Wilson took another pass.
She said of the biopic last year: “I have a very long script that is really hard for me to make shorter.
“I’ve been whittling away at it, but it’s like hacking off my limbs.”
While the biopic’s future is unknown, Madonna will have a biography hitting shelves later this year.
Madonna: A Rebel Life by Mary Gabriel will be published in October.
The book is said to not only give a deep dive into the hit singer’s life but also her contribution to modern feminism and the LGBTQIA+ movement.
In a statement released to The Bookseller, the author wrote: “If Madonna’s story were to be reduced to one word it would be power. She represents the power of a woman without fear.
“The Madonna I found during five years of research and writing is fierce — in her work, in her life, in her passions. Norman Mailer called her “our greatest living female artist”.
“I would add that she is one of the most significant figures of modern times.”
