Watch: Rihanna’s Painful-Looking Tattoo Session


Rihanna is literally a walking piece of art. During her Diamonds world tour, Rihanna made a pit stop in Auckland, New Zealand and decided on new ink as a souvenir.

The 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 the bad gal’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 G, and even laughed and joked with the two artists. Peep the video spotted by VIBE Vixen of the “Pour It Up” singer getting tatted posted by a local named Tiki Taane above.
