Guns, Thugs & Stars: Rihanna's Tattoo Timeline (PHOTOS)


We've been counting, and our record shows Rihanna has at least 15 tattoos at this point (maybe 16 depending on that tweet she sent out that looked like she was getting a back tat).

The most recent ink revealed on Wednesday, Jan. 25, was a tribute to the late rapper Tupac on her knuckles that reads "Thug Life." The latest design adds to the slew of tattoos on the 23-year-old's body, most of which are in fact writings.  She tweeted about the tat a few times, one of which read: "Err'body has an opinion, but yall know what yall can do with them!!! #THUGLIFE"

Click the pics and let us know which of RiRi's tattoos is your fave in the comments. Can you guess which of her tats is mispelled?

 

According to RihannaTattoos.net, the ink on the right side of her waist was supposed to be a sanskrit prayer from the Sanatana Dharma (Hindu scripture) Bhagavad Gita 10.4-5, but it's not quite there. The ink is supposed to read something like: "forgiveness, honesty, suppression, and control." However, it actually reads:

“Long suffering, truthfulness, self-restraint, inward calm, fear and fearlessness.”
The tattoo is also missing the last part of the prayer that is supposed to read: "pleasure, pain, birth, death." Regardless, it looks super sexy yet super subtle on Rihanna's hip! 

RiRi isn't the only pop star to sport a lot of ink. Check out Miley Cyrus' many tattoos in the gallery below.

    It's great that her tattoos all mean something... Not just some ink that looks cool and will go out of fashion in ten years...

    It's in the wrong order... In french, we would say "fleur rebelle", not "rebelle fleur". If you get a tattoo in another language, at least get it right! =)

    You actually make it seem so easy together with your presentation but I in finding this topic to be actually something that I think I would never understand. It sort of feels too complex and very huge for me. I'm looking ahead to your next submit, I'll attempt to get the cling of it!

    That's a bad comparison. Angelina Jolie is beautiful, smart AND talented. "R" is none of those things. She a two bit ho. Nothing more and nothing less.

    I think it's a rebellious stage that these so called "celebrities" go through, look at Angelina Jolie. It will come back to haunt her, once maturity and sanity sets in. May take a while though.

    Every time I am unfortunate enough to see a picture of "it", "it" get's uglier and dumber. "Thug Life"? How about "Idiot". She should get "tramp" inked on her forehead...
