Britney Spears is taking her secret Kabbalah lessons seriously - she's had a Hebrew symbol tattooed on the back of her neck.

The pop superstar, who has dabbled with the mystical offshoot of Judaism after being introduced to it by pal Madonna, seems to be getting serious about all things Kabbalah.

Her new Hebrew symbol, which represents "the power of healing," is one of two new tattoos Britney has had inked on her - the other is a personal symbol of her love for new husband Kevin Federline.

She explains, "I have pink dice on my left wrist. It's something me and my husband we did together. He has blue dice, I have pink dice."
