Rihanna Gets New Tattoo Under Breasts to Honor Grandmother

by at . Comments

Rihanna has paid tribute to her late grandmother, who passed away in July after a lengthy battle with cancer, with a mammoth tattoo under her boobs.

Fresh off MTV VMA appearance, which saw her kiss Chris Brown and (maybe) call Drake an a$$hole, Rih revealed the new ink to fans on Instagram.

The pop superstar wrote: "Goddess Isis - Complete Woman - Model for future generations - #GRANGRANDOLLY - always in and on my heart #1love"

Rihanna Isis Tattoo

The tattoo depicts Egyptian goddess of rebirth Isis, throne-shaped headdress and all, down on one knee with her wings unfurled under the singer's breasts.

Isis, appropriately, is considered a symbol of empowered femininity.

Ciara "Dolly" Brathwaite, Rihanna's grandmother, died of cancer this summer, resulting in an outpouring of support from fans and Twitter photo tributes from the star.

Her latest tribute ensures Dolly's memory will be with her forever.

What do you think of Rihanna's latest tat?

@ leah

I you only the wise knows the truth, Rihanna you blew everything out of the tray.


I do NOT know what is wrong with ppl 2 day; especially young ppl. There r plenty of ways she can honor her grandma. Not a wise choice & the tat is ulgy. It will look GROSS when she age.


so, is she planning to go topless the rest of her life? paaaathetic!


Sh is sooooo stupid, wats wrong wit ths woman? Musicians lack reason and inteligence, wat a looser!!!


I absolutely love the tattoo, an as for her breast sagging it's 2012 and she has enough money to make sure they never sag ppl DUH.


If my grandmother died and I wanted to honor her, I certainly wouldn't do it by getting a tattoo like THAT, especially under my breasts. What a skank. She's only doing it to create news about herself, since everyone knows her music isn't good enough to keep her in the spotlight. She probably thrives off of this negativity so it can fuel her "fuck you bitches" attitude that nobody likes.


Isnt Jay Z her mentor? If so, he should step down from his throne for a hot minute and guide her in the right direction.


Talk about ridiculous...he g'ma dies of breast cancer, one would think she would be advocating for early detection, for breast and other cancers...tats can screw up things like MRIs, and can cause a lot of pain during testing. She did it to please herself, don't be using cancer for an excuse.

Sometimes you just need your privacy. But it comes with the territory. There's no privacy when you are out in the public.
