Rihanna seems to be intent on proving that she’s a badass. First, she (reportedly) starts banging Chris Brown again, which is kinda like going bungee jumping after your chord snapped the first time, and now she got tattoo of the phrase “Thug Life.”
I was going to make fun of it, but she got it tatted on her knuckles. Pretty badass.
Rihanna’s ink was an homage to Tupac Shakur, who had the phrase tattooed on his stomach. She Tweeted a picture with the caption:
“All these b-tches screaming that 2pac back #THUGLIFE.”
Yes, 2pac is back. And he’s wearing a micro metallic bathing suit and hanging out with Katy Perry.
In the pic, Rihanna is also wearing a John Lennon shirt. All she needs is a Kurt Cobain flannel and she’ll have all the best deceased singers covered.
Rihanna also posted a separate Twitter message, in reference to Drake’s single ‘Free Spirit’, which mentions Tupac’s girlfriend, who had a tattoo of his face on her arm.
"Tat my f***in name on u girl so I know its real!!! #MINE (sic)."
Because nothing says “it’s real” like getting your significant other’s name on your arm. Just ask Johnny Depp, Angelina Jolie, Eva Longoria...
Rihanna has approximately 14 visible tattoos, including a musical note, a Pisces, the word “love”, a trail of stairs and the French idiom ‘Rebelle Fleur’, which means rebellious flower.
The singer posted some other photos on Twitter of her getting inked by tattoo artist Mark Mahoney. He appears to be inking her back while she downs a bottle of beer. Rihanna Tweeted:
“My boo Mark Mahoney!!!! #RockstarSh-t #TATnight (sic).”
