A local musician uploaded a video to YouTube that shows Rihanna grimacing as the tattoo artist literally chisels pigment into her skin YEEEEEEEEESH!
The tattoo of traditional Maori markings goes from her fingers to her forearm and OH MY GODDDDDDDDDDDD it looks so painful.
Ta moko tattoos were commonplace among the Maori people of New Zealand, though they fell out of favor in the 19th century. They have enjoyed a recent resurgence as a means for people to connect with New Zealand's indigenous culture.
