rihanna getting tribal tattoo

Rihanna is seen ‘manning up’ as she gets a tribal tattoo with chisel, ink and mallet

*Being a world traveler, Rihanna, like a lot travelers, likes to keep a memento from the various places she visits.

Well, RiRi is in New Zealand as part of her “Diamonds” world tour and while there, she got herself inked with a traditional Maori tattoo which, instead of a needle, involves a chisel, ink pigment and a mallet. Ouch!

In a video uploaded by Tiki Taane, a New Zealander musician and tattoo artist who worked on the “We Found Love” singer with tattooist Inia Taylor, Rihanna is seen grimacing as little arrows are hammered into her right hand.

As Black Voices noted, the 25-year-old already has over a dozen tattoos, including the goddess Isis on her chest, music notes on her ankle, stars on her back and a gun on her rib cage.

The video below shows blood and may be difficult for some to watch:
