Rihanna Shows Off New ‘Thug Life’ Tattoo

Rihanna

Rihanna’s tattoo obsession continues. The bad girl added some fresh ink to her body this week. RiRi visited the Shamrock Social Club in Los Angeles, getting “Thug Life” tatted across her knuckles.

“All these bitches screaming that 2pac back ♫ #THUGLIFE,” tweeted the pop star, who already has around 14 tattoos including one with her best friend’s birthdate on her shoulder and another on her chest that reads “Never a failure, always a lesson.”

But that wasn’t all. She appeared to be getting another tat on her body from famed tattoo artist Mark Mahoney, while holding a beer bottle. During her trip to the tattoo parlor, she also ran into Grindhouse actor Danny Trejo.

    I love Rihanna and everything, but all these tattoos are getting a little ridiculous. Just to think 20 to 30 years how these tattoos will begin to look… It’s her life though, if they are something she enjoys then I guess there’s nothing we can say about that.

    She should’ve tattooed ‘DUMB BROAD’ on her big ass forehead. I’m sure it would fit.

    She’s honestly trying too hard for attention. And I bet the Thug Life tattoo is fake. She’d do anything to make headlines. Someone please take this little girl back to the small island she used to live on.

    Seriously! She got a tattoo. BFD. People get tattoos every day and it’s not like she got something unusual even, I honestly don’t see why this is a big deal.
    It doesn’t matter if you think it looks good or not, all that matters here is Rihanna’s own opinion because it’s HER body and SHE is the one who has to live in it, not you.
    She wanted a tattoo, she got a tattoo. Wow that is so shocking and weird. Not.

    But Rihanna that’s enough baby Girl

    So tired of people saying how gross tattoos will look when you’re older. Tattoos are a reminder of a time in you’re life when it was relevant (or at least they should be.) If you’re only getting a tattoo because you think it’ll make you look good, you’re getting it for the wrong reasons. Besides, ink or no ink, wrinkled skin looks gross anyway, so enjoy your beauty while you got it.

    She needs to get her life to together and getting all these tattoos that she’s gonna regret when she gets older and starts getting wrinkles. I think she should take responsibility and take a real break not small vacations where she just drinks, but a year off from music completely. She’s already successful and has made a name for herself. I’m not even a fan, but I’m starting to feel bad for her.

    ChaosHectic Reply:

    @Joe, Of course she knows that john lennon is on her shirt. Some (actually a lot) of these artists are very open in their musical interests. Why do you think they get into the music business? We’re talking about a woman that did the cover of “umbrella” (which was originally a rock song) and also had Slash featured in one of her songs. Of course she would know who john lennon is. Who says that a person can have versatility in their style? It is a gift.
