We introduce a simple lattice model in which percolation is constructed on top of critical percolation clusters, and show that it can be repeated recursively any number n of generations. In two dimensions, we determine the percolation thresholds up to n=5. The corresponding critical clusters become more and more compact as n increases, and define universal scaling functions of the standard two-dimensional form and critical exponents that are distinct for any n. This family of exponents differs
... rom any previously known universality class, and cannot be accommodated by existing analytical methods. We confirm that recursive percolation is well defined also in three dimensions.
