Days after calling out white supremacists at the VMAs and posting an adorable tribute to her late father Michael Jackson, 19-year-old actress Paris Jackson has showed off her newest tattoo on Instagram and it appears to be one of her most painful-looking and spiritually themed to date.

With over 50 tattoos covering her body, the California-based star has added the seven chakras - known to be the centres in our bodies in which energy flows - across the entire length of her chest, from her sternum to just above her belly button.

Jackson debuted her latest inking in an Instagram story over the weekend, including a photo of bandages covering the tattoo with the caption 'secreting blood n plasma everywhere'.

She finally posted a picture to show off the chakras to the social media platform on Sunday and has received over 113,000 'likes' for the post.

In the snap, each individual chakra is ringed in a different colour of the rainbow, which are thought to allow energy to flow from the crown to the root of the body.

The star - who is vocal about the importance of raising awareness of mental illness and body positivity - recently got a matching tattoo with her godfather, former child actor Macaulay Culkin.

She also has several tattoos in memory of her father and reportedly has one dedicated to her grandmother, Katherine Jackson.

Explaining her love of tattoos, Jackson posted a photo to Instagram of her showing off her inking last year with the caption:

'The craftsmanship of tattoos will always be a controversy. some people like them, some people absolutely hate them. I appreciate art, I always have. especially when that art means something to me.

with every step i take, you lift my foot and guide me forward. love you 🍏

A post shared by Paris-Michael K. Jackalope (@parisjackson) on

'Today I can look at my inner forearms and see art that has meaning for me, I don't see a dark past anymore. My scars and past of self-hatred have been covered by loving marks, creativity, ingenuity.. and depth. Sure I will always carry my past with me, but I see ink as a way of changing for the better, always improving.'

Just keep doing you, Paris.
