Rihanna Gets New Tattoo: Sexy or Stupid?

by at .

She's no Travis Barker, but Rihanna is running out of space for tats.

Last night, the Rated R singer headed to NYC tattoo parlor East Side Ink - site of her gun tattoo - and had a personal motto etched indelibly in her skin forever.

“Rihanna came in at about 2:00 A.M.,” East Side Ink owner and artist Keith “BangBang” McCurdy said. “She told me in advance that she would be coming by."

When the singer, who teamed up with Adam Lambert to launch online music video provider Vevo, got to the tattoo parlor, she knew just the ink she wanted:

"'Never a failure, always a lesson,' but written backwards.”
