Rihanna Inked One Too Many Times

Rihanna loves getting inked. She says she likes hanging out in tattoo shops. "I am so intrigued by tattoos. It's like an entire culture, and I study it."

Her very first one is the musical note she got in 2006 placed on her right foot. This was inspired by her fresh music career. The Pisces on her right ear was designed in Tokyo. She was lucky enough that the famous Brazilian artist who did it was there at the same time. However in 2007, her Sanskrit prayer tat going down her hip was misspelled. But that did not stop the singer from getting more. The star tattoo on her left ear was very spontaneous. She just stopped by a shop and got it. She has all sorts of tattoos done in  a whim like the trails of stars, cute skull with a pink ribbon, love word, "Shhh..." phrase. Ribcage tattoos are famous with other stars and of course Rihanna has one too. Hers is an Arabic phrase that translates to "Freedom in God".

Rihanna also has tattoos with a meaning. She got her best friend's birthday inked on her left shoulder. During her tour in New Zealand, the tat enthusiast had a tribal sign marked in the traditional way. "It hurt like hell!", she says. The singer even gave a tattoo as a birthday gift to her friend and at the same time done the handgun for herself. "Never a failure, always a lesson" is Rihanna's personal motto. She had this in mirror writing that way she can read it in front of the mirror. The latest tattoo made controversies. They said that the French phrasing was wrong. But she explains, "Rebelle Fleur translates to rebel flower, NOT rebellious flower, it's 2 nouns so in that case fleur does not HAVE to be first! Fyi, cuz they will ask".

All in all, Rihanna has 14 small tattoos right now from her head all the way to her ankles. Bang bang is the well-known tattoo artist behind some of her tattoos.
