Keith Urban performed at the 56th Academy of Country Music Awards at the Grand Ole Opry on Sunday in Nashville, Tennessee.

And while onstage, the New Zealand-born country singer appeared to be wearing a new tribal ink on his right hand.

Keith, 53, showed off a dark spiral tattoo on his hand as he gripped the microphone during the ceremony.

The former American Idol judge had introduced the tattoo a month earlier in March in a video from his base in Sydney, Australia.

With a dark blue blazer jacket with black lining around his forearms, the new tattoo certainly stood out.

Two of Keith’s tattoos on the same arm are dedicated to his wife Nicole Kidman, including the tribal-style bracelet with the initials ‘NMK’ for ‘Nicole Mary Kidman’.

He also has a more intricate design on his right bicep, an elaborate heart-shaped crest with a banner in the center that says ‘Nicole’.

Keith also has a tribal style phoenix tattoo on his left forearm, a sun on his chest, an eagle on his right shoulder blade, a tribal design on his left bicep and the word ‘love’ on his left shoulder blade.

Keith and Nicole met at a G’Day LA event in Los Angeles in January 2005, before getting married in Manly, Sydney, in May 2006.

Nicole and Keith share daughters Sunday Rose, 12, and Faith Margaret, 10.

The Hollywood actress was previously married to actor Tom Cruise from 1990 to 2001. They adopted daughter Isabella, now 28, and son Connor, now 26.
