Rihanna‘s new hand tattoo is on top of another tattoo she in New Zealand. The 25-year-old got a traditional painful Maori tattoo, which was applied with a chisel and a malle. Riri flew all the way to the Dominican Republic to get a tattoo by artist Bang Bang. We wonder if covering up the Polynesian tattoo is considered disrespectful?
Bang Bang told E! News:
“We drew on her hand from 7 p.m. to midnight. We were drawing and changing things. I’d take a break and [colleague] Cally-Jo would draw, then I’d draw. The inspiration was henna art, we wanted something really decorative, feminine and sexy. She had something preexisting on her hand. So it was a little bit of a cover up, but also making it look good. We needed to work with what she already had.”
“Her hand is not something you can put away. We went over and over. It was a struggle to design. She even took a nap when we were drawing. We started over, until we found the direction she liked. [It was the] most challenging design I’ve done on Rihanna before. This one had elements to it that were very unique, covering up pieces of it, combining pieces of it, making up new pieces,” Bang Bang told E! News.
“Ri flipped out,” Bang Bang told E! “Absolutely loved it, loved it! It’s a hard thing when you get a tattoo and not absolutely love it. It’s uncomfortable to have something on your hand, especially when it’s in such a visible spot, and she’s such a visible person. Your hand is as closely related as your face. If you think about it, her hand is right there and the whole world is watching it.”
Chris Brown felony assault charge has just been reduced to a MISDEMEANOR and Chris has pled not guilty. Chris Brown was released without bail. He’s also required to stay 100 yards away from the victim.
The reason the charge was reduce is because the victim suffered minor injuries. As Chris existed the courtroom, there were fans standing outside with peace signs and “free chris brown” signs
Brown’s lawyer, Danny Onorato, said outside court Monday that his client committed no crime.
“We understand that his security acted to protect Mr. Brown and Mr. Brown’s property as he was authorized to do under District of Columbia law. We are confident that Mr. Brown will be exonerated of any wrongdoing,” he said.
The L.A. County Probation Dept. is already conducting an investigation to determine if Chris violated his probation. As one source familiar with the investigation tells us, “It’s pretty clear he didn’t keep his nose clean. It sure seems like a violation.”
The Probation Dept. will submit a report to the judge in the Rihanna case, and the D.A. will then weigh in — based on what we know, they will almost certainly ask the judge to REVOKE Chris’ probation according to tmz
Chris’ latest diss in Dj Khaled I’m still might be the last straw for Rihanna, 25, a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
“I’m Still,” rapping, “Every ni**a in the industry done fu**ed my bi**h/ And all my ni**as said I told ya/Now all these rap ni**as wanna be political/Nah, f**k that I’m a real lyrical/killer!
“She really thought she could be cool and civil with him but she sees she can’t. News travels fast no matter where she is on the globe and he knew that this would get back to her,” the source says. “Things like this used to upset her but now it’s to be expected from a childish person like Chris.”
“It’s sad but she can’t let him break her,” the source says. “She’s got her heart intact and wants him to do and be well. Hopefully one day he will really grow up and be a man. But she thinks that’s a long, long ways away.”
Rihanna is currently in South Africa on tour. She shared some really eye catching photos on Instagram
While in New Zealand Rihanna decided to get a traditional Polynesian tattoo. Maori Tattoos are done by the use of a chisel and mallet. (ouch!) The tattoo was done by famed tattoo artist Inia Taylor at the Moko Ink .
It covers her entire hand and works its way down her forearm. This was only Riri’s first session.
A description for the studio on the Moko Ink website reads: ‘Moko Ink is the worlds first Maori Tattoo Studio specialising in the contemporary use and creation of traditional Maori and Polynesian Tatu.
‘We make one off body art keeping alive the language and traditions that are unique to the art form. All our art is custom designed for each person on a consultation basis.
‘The language of Ta Moko is used to design a unique piece of body art expressing aspects that relate to the wearer.’
No thank you.
Rihanna and Teyana Taylor twitter beef just got real. Rihanna Navy has launched a petition demanding Reebok drop Teyana as their spokesperson. Teyana uploaded the below photoshopped image making fun of Riri’s bruises from her ex boyfriend Chris Brown.
The petition has over 1500 signatures thus far.
Here are two comments left by signers

No one should make fun of someone else’s pain especially domestic violence…just plain wrong..what miss Teyana Taylor did was beyond despicable…she put Rihanna’s face in a boxing ring as a punching bag…can’t go on with the rest of the details….it was so sickening and horrible to see…Miss Taylor is not the right image to represent your company as it reflects back heavily on you as a whole. My blood runs cold just thinking about the picture she posted as her avi on her twitter page.
Fieona Dixon, BIRMINGHAM, UNITED KINGDOM:
I was physically abuse as a child and I do not think its is funny. Tayanna Taylor mocked domestic violence openly on twitter and I feel strongly upset .. I will not be supporting this brand anymore ..
