Rihanna Thug Life Tattoo: Rihanna’s gone through some tough times in the recent past, but I wonder what message she’s trying to send with her new tattoo if any. As you can see, she’s inked her fingers with the words “Thug Life,” a term coined and popularized by rapper Tupac Shakur who died in 1996 and had the same phrase tatted across his stomach. Rihanna’s tattoo is light pink and is very faint, which seems almost contradictory.
My immediate thought was that the tattoo is fake, but according to TMZ she was seen at a tattoo parlor in LA yesterday; and the assumption is that’s when she got it. However, Rihanna also shared a photo of her getting a tattoo on her lower back.
Rihanna seems to be a huge fan of tattoos considering she has well over ten of them visible all throughout her body. She also seems to have a strong friendship with her celebrity tattoo artist Mark Mahoney, who’s also done work on Angelina Jolie.
