World-known singer Rihanna has become a fashion icon for many girls and women. This fantastic celebrity never looks boring – she’s always about something new and fresh in her style.
To date, queen Riri has 25 tattoos on her body: from tiny signs to big outstanding pictures, and each one has a deep meaning. Some of them are so cute and symbolize Rihanna’s feelings, another show her values of life, part of them are connected with special events in the singer’s life.
The ankle of Rihanna's right foot is decorated with two tattoos - a musical note and a treble clef.
1988 on Riri’s ankle is one of the latest tattoos, its meaning is evident – just the year of birth.
Camouflage shark appeared on the ankle just recently at the end of 2016.
The right leg of Rihanna is a place for a falcon. She believes that it is a symbol of light in the darkness.
Skull on Rihanna’s ankle is the only tattoo made with color ink.
Rihanna calls to be silent with her "Shhh..." tattoo, which is inked on the index finger of the singer’s right hand.
Another pretty little tattoo is on her left hand. It’s the inscription "Love" on the middle finger.
The singer brought a tattoo featuring a Maori tribal pattern, the meaning of which is strength and love, from New Zealand. This tattoo is inked on Rihanna's right hand.
She also has a chevron, lines, and henna design on the back of her hand.
Cross on the wrist on the black background expands the henna designs on the inside.
What and where are the other Rihanna's tattoos?
The image of the Pisces sign is located behind the right ear of the singer, while inside the left ear you’ll find a star that looks super cute and crazy at the same time.
Another tattoo is dedicated to a woman named Melissa Ford, who is Rihanna's best friend. The left shoulder is inked with Roman numerals, which mean the date of birth of her friend.
By the way, Melissa did the same: she wrote Rihanna's birth date on her left shoulder as well.
“Never a failure, always a lesson” – that’s what is written on the body of the star. It’s placed just below the right collar bone. Curious that the tattoo is written backwards so that Rihanna is able to read it when she looks into the mirror.
Perhaps the biggest Rihanna’s tattoo is the wings of the goddess Isis under the breasts. It is a symbol of mourning for the singer’s grandmother, who died of cancer.
Little gun on the side is hidden under the right hand – looks so feminine and intriguing, isn’t it?
On the left side, there is an inscription in Arabic, which means "freedom in God", and one more on the thigh (this one is in Tibetan), which means “lover”.
Nefertiti on the other side is a symbol of beauty and wisdom in a woman.
Neck & Back Tattoo
When Chris Brown was Rihanna's boyfriend, they made the same tattoos around their necks. The ex-couple inked matching stars in 2008, and later Rihanna updated the tattoo, paving the whole trail of stars down her back. This tattoo is one of the most recognizable and cute Rihanna’s tattoos.
“Rebelle fleur”, inked on the singer's neck is a French phrase, which means a "rebellious flower".
Rihanna sees her body as a kind of canvas, and who knows how long she will create something new and outstanding on it. What’s gonna be Riri’s next tattoo?
