Daily Mail reports that the Barbados-born singer, Rihanna, got a new tattoo on Wednesday. The information was first made public on Twitter by the singer who posted pics of her while getting inked.
Rihanna surprised her fans on Wednesday with another change of style. This time the “Only Girl in The World” star did not dye or cut her hair, but decided to add two more tattoos to her collection of body paint.
The 23-year-old singer likes to identify herself as a thug which is why she imprinted the words “thug life” on her knuckles. The design was inspired by the famous rapper 2Pac who displayed a similar message on his stomach. Unlike Tupac Shakur, the Barbadian star chose to tattoo the letters on her knuckles with pale pink ink.
The Twitter picture was accompanied by a similarly tough message. The singer wrote: “? All these b****es screaming that 2pac back ? #THUGLIFE” underneath the image which displayed her clenched fists. Riri likes to pose as a tough girl, especially since her collaboration with Jay-Z begun several years ago. Despite this, fans think the ‘tough girl’ image is false because the singer opted to tattoo her knuckles in a barely visible ink.
While the “Thug Life” design was shown in the picture, the second tattoo that Rihanna got was not revealed to the public. She only hinted to it through Drake’s Free Spirit lyrics “’Tat my f***in name on u girl so I know its real!!! #MINE”. The new marking seems to be placed on the singer’s back or at least this is what we may infer from the second photo where she is pictured lying on the tattoo artist Mark Mahoney’s table with a bottle of beer.
Rihanna finished her Loud Tour last month and since then, she has continuously used social networks to stay in touch with her fans. She repeatedly stated that she is a fan of tattoos with approximately 14 to 15 visible inkings on her body. Her body art includes a music note on her ankle, a Pisces sign behind her right year, the word ‘love’ on her left middle finger and a trail of stars on the back of her neck.
