Rihanna Commemorates Her Trip to New Zealand With Painful Tat


Rihanna is literally a walking piece of art.

Currently on her Diamonds world tour Rihanna made a stop in Auckland, New Zealand, the bad gal decided to take home a new piece of ink as a souvenir.

The new tattoo is a traditional Maori and Polynesian Tatu, and features elaborate lines and symbols from her fingernails up to her forearm. The process appears to be extremely painful; the artist uses a chisel and mallet to embed pigment into RihRih’s skin and at one point asks her to wipe blood away from her red hand.

Clad in a gray hoodie and black leggings, Rihanna took the pain like a gangsta, and even laughed and joked with the two artists. Peep the video of the “Pour It Up” singer posted by a local named Tiki Taane after the jump. —Kandice Lawson
