Rihanna recently obtained a new tattoo of a tiny cross, pictured in a slanted position on her left collarbone. It's her 16th tattoo overall, according to reports!
The ink artist, Bang Bang, posted a black and white photo of his creation:
"New #cross #tattoo I put on @rihanna last night," he Tweeted (below).
Rihanna, 24, got herself inked on March 15 in New York from her preferred tattoo artiste. Bang Bang is the creator of most of the singer's tattoos.
He says they decided to put the latest mark on the R&B star's collarbone "because it's easy to hide with a necklace but also can be in plain sight."
Why does a woman need so many tattoos in the first place?
Who cares, it's fun. "She always flips out [when it's done] and jumps up and down like a 16-year-old girl getting her first car," Bang Bang said.
Some other notable Rihanna tattoos include:
- The word "Shhh" on her right forefinger
- The phrase "Rebelle Fleur" on the left side of her neck
- The words "Thug Life," inspired by slain rapper Tupac, on her knuckles
